Worlds fastest man Usain Bolt will make his maiden trip to India in early September. He is not going to India to compete in any race or for any advertisement, rather to astonishment of many; Usain Bolt will be involved in a friendly face off with the Indian cricketing Star, Yuvraj Singh.

Yuvraj Singh and Usain bolt, both are brand ambassadors of sportswear giant, PUMA. And this innovative event is being organized by PUMA in Indias Chinnaswamy Stadium on  2nd September. It would be a great spectacle for fans to see two legends taking on each other on a cricket pitch.

PUMA has named this event as Bolt and Yuvi Battle of the Legends. The multi Olympic Champion and world record holder in 100 and 200 meter race, Usain Bolt is a huge cricket fan and had expressed his desire of playing in Indian Premier League as a fast bowler. Though, that desire couldnt be materialized yet but this match against Yuvraj Singh, who was the man of the series in the last Cricket World Cup in 2011 in which India prevailed, will provide an opportunity to Usain Bolt to show off his cricketing skills. We have seen him running like a bolt at tracks and beating his competitors hands down but will Bolt be able to replicate a similar performance on the cricketing pitch? This is a question whose answer we will get only after watching Bolt play against Yuvraj Singh.

Bolt ran his last race of the season just few days ago in Warsaw, Poland where he clocked the new indoor best time o f 9.98 secs to win the 100 m race in 5th Warszwaski Memorial Kamili Skolimowskie.Bolt, who earlier had indicated that 2016 will be the year he will retire, said he will not leave the tracks for good until 2017.

Usain Bolts love of cricket is not hidden to anyone. According to Bolt himself, Cricket was his first love. In past, he has been involved in a faceoff with his fellow country man, Chris Gayle. In that match, Chris Gayle launched Usain Bolts ball for a massive six over mid wicket but the thunder bolt didnt squander much time in getting his revenge as he clean bowled the T20 expert on the very next ball. The celebrations which followed this wicket were amusing enough that even Chris Gayle couldn’t keep himself from smiling.

In an interview, Bolt had expressed that he always wanted to be a fast bowler and that his favorite cricketer is the former Pakistani fast bowling, famous for his toe crushing Yorkers and exceptionally fast bouncers, Waqar Younis. He further added that Pakistan was his team.

We expect to have a great match between Yuvi and Bolt.
