Jamaican-born, International sprint sensation, Usain Bolt, is considering an offer by Australian cricketer Shane Warne to play Twenty20 cricket in Australia next season.
Bolt has been offered a spot to play with The Melbourne Stars.
The cricket franchise stated that they have opened negotiations with Bolt through his management company about playing in the Big Bash League. This competition involves eight teams comprising international cricket stars and local players; it is expected to commence in December and will culminate in January.
Warne is very excited to have Bolt play with his team; he has even started a social medal campaign to garner support for Bolt.
Now that the London Olympics has concluded, the negotiations will intensify. Providing all goes well and Bolt is free and able to play, he will join Warner and the rest of the Melbourne team in December.
Bolt played junior cricket in Jamaica and is a lover of the sport. He has also tried his hand at charity cricket matches.
Usain Bolt captured three gold medals at the London Olympics; he retained his 100m and 200m titles and led the 4x100m men’s relay team to victory.
Everyone wants a piece of Usain Bolt.
