Cricket Attax is a game for 2 players and the aim is to beat your opponent by scoring the most runs and losing the fewest wickets. Users can select and create their own team with the likes of Tendulkar, Dhoni, Sehwag, Virat, Gambhir, Kallis, Dravid, Ganguly, Gilchrist and Pollard just waiting to be found in card packets.

The Cricket Attax collection comprises primarily two key components - ‘Cards’ and ‘Starter Packs’.

The packs also include Limited Edition cards of Sachin Tendulkar, MS Dhoni and Zaheer Khan.

Topps Sport & Entertainment head of India operations Sanjeev Katyal said, “Last year the brand brought in the culture of collectability and created a new category of collectables in India. The sales volumes created a history by reaching sales figures of nearly ten times than the nearest comparable toy collectable in the country. Given the enhanced depth and width of our offering and the massive scale of our marketing efforts, we are confident that this year we will multiply our reach both in terms of awareness and conversions at retail and set another new benchmark for Cricket Attax."

Last year Topps India Sports & Entertainment Company introduced India to the collectable culture with the launch of the Topps Cricket Attax trading card game.

The game was launched with nationwide media and BTL campaign and spread like a viral to reach millions of kids across the country.
