As an eight-time Olympic champion and eleven-time world champion, “Lightning Bolt” holds the current world record of 9:58 seconds over 100 meters, which he set at the 2009 IAAF World Championships in Berlin. And although he may have withdrawn from the track, the sprinter has expressed the desire several times to show his “cricket skills”.

Bolt also revealed that he chose athletics as a career option and bowed to his father’s wish and that cricket was always his “first love”.

Bolt has expressed an interest in getting involved in cricket at the right time as the T20 leagues in golf and elsewhere spring up. But the legend has to use cricket acumen to demonstrate his sprinting skills if he is to show his talent on the cricket field.

It should not be easy for the Jamaican, however, because it will be a big task to secure a place alongside well-known international players who understand the game like the back of their hand.

It also remains to be seen whether Bolt would rather be a batter or a bowler. With his long strides, he could make a great fast bowler, or he could be a valuable batsman since he had his strength to hit sixes or take naughty singles.

But all eyes would be on “Bolt the Runner” when he takes the field. Will he be faster than Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who is considered one of the fastest runners in the sport? Dhoni ran at 31 km / h to complete two runs against Australia in a T20 game. If Bolt reached his top performance of 9:58 seconds, he would do it at 38 km / h!

Time will tell whether Bolt can keep up with Dhoni’s pace on the pitch.

Following the trend, several leagues have recently been announced in the Middle East, with the Emirates Cricket Board (ECB) causing a sensation for a T20 league.

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, which has the largest diaspora population, is also focused on popularizing cricket.

The Indian Ambassador to Qatar, Dr. Speaking recently in Doha, Qatar, which will host the FIFA World Cup next year, in the presence of leading industrialist Kumar Mangalam Birla (Chairman of the Aditya Birla Group), Deepak Mittal said: “We are also working on creating one here in Qatar To have cricket league. “

Hassan al-Thawadi, general secretary of the Qatar Supreme Committee, said Qatar’s infrastructure spending since 2010, including the new metro system, is estimated at $ 200 billion and the direct cost of the World Cup is around 6, $ 5 billion.
