India have made a thumping start to their World Cup campaign. They have won four matches while one ended in a washout against New Zealand. They outplayed thier opponents in the first three games before escaping a shocker against Afghanistan. The Men in Blues will play West Indies next followed by the all-important game against host England on June 30. Before the exciting encounter, world’s fastest man Usain Bolt has predicted India to emerge victorious at Edgbaston in Birmingham.
Bolt backs India to win
India and England have produced exciting encounters in recent times. The last time when the Men in Blues toured England, the host handed them a humiliating defeat. Virat Kohli & Co who have had a good World Cup so far will look to overcome the challenge and complete revenge against the top-ranked ODI side. Meanwhile, ahead of the game, India have found an ally of them with Usain Bolt cheering for them in this crucial encounter.
In a video posted by ICC, Usain Bolt is seen answering questions thrown at him from kids of both the countries. Out of the series of questions, the one which stands out the most is when a boy asks the Jamaican about who does he think will win the match.
“I think India will win the match,” says Bolt.
Also, a kid asked Usain Bolt about the coolest thing about cricket, to which the fastest man on the planet said that for him it is whenever the ball crosses the boundary. A girl also asks him about tips to win her upcoming race, to which Bolt asks her to just go and enjoy the race.
