World’s fastest man Usain Bolt named as T20 World Cup 2024 ambassador

Bolt hails from the West Indies (Jamaica) and is a staunch supporter of Caribbean cricket.

Sports icon and the world’s fastest man, Usain Bolt, has been named the ambassador for the T20 World Cup 2024. The mega event, which will be held in the USA and the West Indies, is expected to make a big splash in the world’s biggest economy, the USA.

Talking about the T20 World Cup 2024, he said: “I am thrilled to be an ambassador for the upcoming ICC Men’s T20 World Cup. Coming from the Caribbean where cricket is a part of life, the sport has always held a special place in my heart, and I look forward to attending West Indies matches at the World Cup and making a contribution to the growth of cricket globally.

“While I will of course be supporting West Indies at the World Cup, getting the sport into the US is big for cricket. It’s the biggest sports market in the world and the energy that we will bring for the T20 World Cup is a huge opportunity leading towards cricket’s inclusion in the LA Olympics in 2028,” Usain Bolt added.
