Sprint superstar Usain Bolt wowed his Indian fans in his trademark style in a brief exhibition cricket contest against Yuvraj Singh in his maiden trip to India. Bolt showcased his cricketing talent in front of an enthusiastic 6000-odd crowd who turned up at the Chinnaswamy Stadium to have a glimpse of the ‘fastest man on earth’ as his team beat Yuvraj-led side in seven-a-side cricket match. Team Bolt clinched a thrilling last-ball victory over Team Yuvraj in the match which had four overs for each team.
Watch this video in which Bolt’s team require 10 runs off the last two balls and the very first ball Bolt hammered part-time off-spinner Aditya Tare for a six straight over his head. With four runs required off the last ball, Bolt tries a massive heave but misses. Just when Yuvraj and his team startsto celebrate, Ajay Jadeja, who hosted the match, plays his part to the script of the entertainment value of the contest. He calls a no-ball much to the delight of Bolt, who cashes the opportunity to whack the free-hit out of the park for a six, helping his side pull off a win in the contest organised by sportswear giant PUMA. Both Bolt and Yuvraj are PUMA ambassadors.
Bolt, who holds both the world records of 100m and 200m, ‘allowed’ Yuvraj to win the race. As he went past the finishing line, Yuvraj celebrated the ‘victory’ in mobot-style which Bolt had done during 2012 London Olympics by imitating celebrated British long distance runner Mo Farah.
