Expressing his enthusiasm for the appointment, Bolt shared, “I am thrilled to be an ambassador for the upcoming ICC Men’s T20 World Cup. Cricket holds a special place in my heart, and I am excited to witness the exhilarating matches in the West Indies and contribute to cricket’s global growth. Bringing cricket to the US market is a significant milestone, paving the way for the sport’s inclusion in the LA Olympics in 2028.”
