German consul shares video of Indian colleagues teaching German counterparts how to play cricket. Watch

Cricket is indisputably the most popular sports in India that the masses follow and connect with. While the game is hugely popular in the subcontinent, it’s almost non-existent in Europe. German Consul for Karnataka and Kerala in Bengaluru, Achim Burkart, shared a video of his Indian colleagues teaching cricket to their German counterparts.

The clip shows the Indian men bowling to their German colleague inside the office of the consulate. The German is being taught how to swing the bat like in golf. “Don’t wreck the hallway,” a person is heard saying in the video. While he fails to hit the ball on his first attempt, he strikes the second delivery bowled to him.

“During lunch break my Indian colleagues try to teach my German colleagues how to play #cricket Happy to report that the consulate is still intact,” Burkart captioned the video.

“A good idea to start the game in Germany!” commented a user. Another said, “Ok but why is he bowling so fast to a person who doesn’t know cricket. Start slow.” “It is great sport that connects nations sir. An India Germany cricket match would be a wonderful idea to boost tourism and friendly relations between the two countries,” another netizen wrote.
