Bolt Enlisted to make Australian Batsmen ‘Explosive’ Runners

The King of Track Usain Bolt has been called by the Australian cricketers to boost their running between the wickets during the Magellan Ashes Test series against England starting from November 23. The Jamaican who holds the world record for the fastest 100m and 200m is currently working with Australian batsmen as they gear up for the Ashes.

“It’s all about explosiveness, and that’s one thing I’ve noticed with cricket — they don’t really have a lot of explosiveness when they’re running,” the eight-time Olympic winner was heard saying to the Herald Sun newspaper.

Bolt, who retired from Athletics earlier this year in August after the World Championship in London, stated that he wanted to increase the awareness among the batsmen while batting.

Australia’s top-order batsman Peter Handscomb welcomed the tips provided by Bolt ahead of the intensely fought battle.

“He was giving us a few pointers on how to get a little bit faster. We’ll give it a crack. He was trying to get us nice and low in the turn and in and out. The first couple of steps are key, and if we can get them right, we’ll be fast. Obviously, he’s the fastest man ever so if we can have the title with him, that’d be cool,” the 26-year-old Handscomb said.

Bolt is busy post-retirement with his training and is thinking of shifting to the Germany club invited football from Bundesliga Borussia Dortmund.

“It’s something that I want to do. I’m trying to get fit now. My doctor finally passed me after my hamstring problems at the world championships, so now I can start training. I’ve started training while I’m here and trying to get into shape before I get home and next year I’ll get a trial and we’ll take it from there,” the eight-time Olympic medal winner signed off.
