It's Bolt vs Yuvi!

It's Bolt vs Yuvi!

It’s no secret that sprint king Usain Bolt loves cricket. The six-time Olympic champion has in the past expressed his desire to have a hit or two in the hugely popular Indian Premier League.

While that may be a while away, fans in Bangalore will finally get to see the towering Jamaican on a cricket field where he will challenge none other than World Cup winner Yuvraj Singh.

At the Puma-organised event, Bolt will be involved in one-of-a-kind cricket face-off against Yuvraj at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium on September 2 between 4-5 pm.

The passes for the match are available only at the Puma Store in Brigade Road, Orion Mall and 100ft Road, Indiranagar, on August 30 and 31, according to a release.

While what challenges the crowd-pleasing Bolt will pose is a secret, one thing is for certain, the fans will throng the stadium to watch the superstar of world sport taking on an Indian star.

Bolt is also set to be involved in other promotional events as the City gears up for a big bash.
