One of the most exciting competitions in world cricket, the Ashes, is just around the corner and the cricketing world is gearing up for the historic brawl. As we inch closer to the tournament, the Englishmen and the Aussies have begun their full-fledged preparation to get themselves in shape.

Steven Smith and his men have the monumental responsibility of winning back the urn on their shoulders in a situation where the pundits have given England the upper hand. However, the Aussies had a new visitor in their camp to ruffle up the spirits ahead of the main event.

Legendary sprinter and eight-time Olympic gold medalist Usain Bolt graced the Australian camp to shower some valuable inputs on the players. The fastest man in the world has expressed his immense love for the gentleman’s game several times in public and the video of his knocking down the stumps behind Chris Gayle is still fresh in everyone’s mind.

Bolt took to Twitter to share some pictures from the moment where we can the icon having a gala time with the Australian players. One picture shows the team performing a sprint while the master watches on from the side. In the next, Bolt is seen doing the shadow of a front foot defence, as Warner and his mates stood line to follow the Jamaican. He captioned the picture as ‘Coach Bolt’.

We are not sure about the fact how much the batting tips from Bolt would benefit Smith and his men, but his suggestions about fitness will take the team to a whole new level.

The Ashes kicks off on the 23rd of November with the two powerhouses going head to head in Brisbane. While the Aussie women have done their task, it would be interesting to see whether Smith and his lads can pull of the same.
