During his visit the double Olympic champion will team up with India batsman Yuvraj Singh for a game of cricket

In what is a bolt from the blue, the fastest man on earth Usain Bolt will make his maiden visit to India on September 2.

The Jamaican sprinter will be in Bengaluru for a day to fulfill commercial obligations for apparel giants Puma.

During his visit the double Olympic champion will team up with India batsman Yuvraj Singh for a game of cricket at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium. The face-off between the two brand ambassadors has been titled ‘Bolt and Yuvi — Battle of the Legends’.

“Puma brings Usain Bolt down for a one-of-a-kind cricket face-off between two sporting legends. For the first time ever, watch the fastest man on earth Usain Bolt, challenge Yuvraj Singh to an exclusive cricket showdown at Chinnaswamy Stadium on September 2,” said a media release on Tuesday.

Bolt is a keen follower of cricket and keeps himself updated about the Indian Premier League, with a special affinity towards Royal Challengers Bangalore, especially since fellow Jamaican Chris Gayle is a part of the team.

Bolt has often expressed his desire to test his skills in the IPL. But for now, it is his pace versus Yuvi’s flair.
