Drew McIntyre sent a special message to the Indian cricket team ahead of the World Cup, expressing his gratitude for India’s amazing love and hospitality.

WWE icon Drew McIntyre, with an impressive track record of championship victories, including two WWE Championships, Tag Team Championships, and a single NXT Championship, has solidified his status as one of the company’s top stars since his return in 2017.

However, it was his unexpected and powerful connection to cricket that garnered international attention. At the Superstar Spectacle event in Hyderabad in September, McIntyre surprised the world by donning the Indian ODI jersey. This heartfelt gesture resonated deeply with cricket enthusiasts, symbolizing his best wishes for the Indian cricket team as they prepare for the World Cup.

In a video shared by WWE India, McIntyre extended his best wishes to the Indian cricket team for the World Cup. Although he expressed his disappointment at not being able to witness the matches live in India, he praised Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli’s performances.

Previously, Drew McIntyre had conveyed his warm regards to the Indian cricket team and captain, Rohit Sharma, via a tweet, wishing them success in the World Cup. His gesture of donning an Indian jersey in a photo also resonated deeply with fans.

India is set to kick off their campaign on October 8th, facing Australia in Chennai. Notably, in a recent three-match series, India emerged victorious, securing a 2-1 win over Australia.
