Legendary swimmer Michael Phelps feels the IPL experience

Legendary swimmer Michael Phelps feels the IPL experience. One of the greatest Olympians of all time, Michael Phelps got a taste of cricket Tuesday as he watched the Indian Premier League match between Delhi Capitals and Chennai Super Kings here.

The winner of an astounding 23 gold medals in the Olympics was in town for promotional activity and dropped in for some time at the Kotla in the evening.

“Phelps has never watched cricket and it was a perfect occasion for him to get a taste of India’s most popular sport. He came as a guest of Delhi Capitals, who invited him through his sponsors,” a senior BCCI official told PTI on condition of anonymity.

The 33-year-old from Baltimore in the USA is on his maiden visit to India. He came in after the match started and was around for an hour before leaving.


It was not known whether Phelps found the game as interesting as baseball or felt like yawning as it happened with tennis great Pete Sampras who tried to endure a day at the Lord’s during an Ashes Test match.
