“It (ICC Cricket World Cup final match) should be (between) England and India.

He was replying to USIBC president Nisha Desai Biswal who asked, “who do you think is going to play the final match”. Pichai shared some of his cricket and baseball experiences in the United States. “When I first came here, I tried to kind of adapt to baseball. I have to say it was a bit challenging. In my first game, I was proud because I hit the ball on the back. It’s a really good shot in cricket. I was like, well look, what I did. But people didn’t appreciate it. Also Read - India vs South Africa Live: How to watch ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 matches on mobile and PC

“In cricket when you run, you always take your bat with you. So I also ran between base with my bat as well. So eventually, I realized baseball was a bit difficult. I can adjust on many things, but I’m going to stick to cricket,” he said. “There is a cricket World Cup going on. It’s a wonderful tournament… rooting for India to do well. But there’s a lot at stake here,” Pichai said.
