The on-going World Cup tournament brings in a lot of prediction from experts and fans around the globe. This time, it was Google’s CEO Sundar Pichai who made his prediction whilst showcasing his love for the Men in Blue.

Addressing a Washington crowd, Pichai said that he is rooting for the Men in Blue to emerge victorious in the tournament. He said that the finals should be between India and England; however, Australia and New Zealand are good teams as well.

This answer was in context to the question asked by USIBC President, Nisha Desai Biswal who asked, “Who do you think is going to play the final match?”

Describing his love and passion for cricket, he admitted that he found baseball a bit challenging when he first moved to the US. He also shared an incident of him playing baseball in the United States where he mentioned that he tried to adapt to the game. However, in the his first game, as he hit the ball on the back, he thought he was great at the sport as it would have been considered a great shot in cricket. However, he admitted that the people didn’t appreciate it.

“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 realised baseball was a bit difficult. I can adjust on many things, but I’m going to stick to cricket,” he said.
