Usain Bolt has finally arrived to India and it’s very clear on what are his objectives of India’s visit. He is coming as a brand ambassador of Puma and will be involved in promotional activities of Puma along with another brand ambassador , Yuvraj Singh. The promotion will be in the form of a cricket match , which will be a unique one in terms of rules governing it.

The match will be palyed at Mangalam Chinnaswamy Stadium between 4 and 5 pm.

There will be 2 teams, each led by Yuvraj and Bolt each and have 7 players in each team including Yuvraj and Bolt respectively. Bolt’s team will include his friend Nugent Walker Jr. and the Indian discard in Harbahjan Singh. Yuvraj’s team will include another Indian discard in Zaheer Khan , who has been struggling with his fitness more than his form. The other members of the team has been made by organising online competitions on Facebbok and Twitter by Puma Cricket and a total of 7 lucky winners have been selected to  participate in the match.

The match will be hosted by former Indian cricketer Ajay Jadeja, who had famously scored 26 runs in an over of Waqar Younis in the 1996 World Cup.  The most unique feature of the match is that both Yuvraj and Bolt will play for 4 overs and even if they get out , they won’t head for the pavilion, insted some runs will be deducted from the team’s total as a penalty for getting out. the idea has come from Indoor cricket, where the rules are very similar and players have a fix number of overs to bat . no matter how many times they get out during that. Yuvraj has been out fo the team for sometime now and will be looking to make a comeback into the side for the World Cup 2015.
