The ICC World Cup is off to an interesting start, with both mega scores and little totals on the board. Some underdogs proving to make a mark and fan-filled stadiums are building the cricket fever in the UK.
Team India, who are yet to start their World Cup campaign, have been cooling off from the glittering IPL season. While they enjoy some time off the pitch, fans of the two-time World Cup winners are definitely not resting.
Backing Team India are some unexpected stars from the football world. Recently, Chelsea defender David Luiz shared his support for Virat Kohli and Team India in a video. Now, joining in the blues-support team is one of Germany’s most successful footballers ever – Thomas Muller.
I wish all participants of the Cricket #WorldCup2019 good luck & thrilling matches. Especially I cross my fingers for @imVkohli, the captain of the Indian team.

The FIFA World Cup winner and team forward took to social media on Monday to show his support for the men in blue. Now, who saw that coming? We know right!
Muller is one of the most unexpected fans of Team India at the ICC World Cup. He declared his love for the team in a tweet in which he was seen sporting a blue India jersey and also holding a cricket bat in one hand.
Striking a smile, Muller’s tweet read, “I wish all participants of the Cricket #WorldCup2019 good luck & thrilling matches.”
Pointing out that Virat has been a supporter of Germany in the past, the Bayern Munich vice-captain wanted to return the favor by backing Team India.
He said, “Especially I cross my fingers for @imVkohli, the captain of the Indian team. He’s a fan of @DFB_Team and supported it multiple times in the past #Cricket #GermanyCheersForIndia.”
The force behind a cricketing great nation at such a big stage is just amazing to see. With some of the world’s biggest stars rooting for Virat and Co., who’s to doubt the confidence the team must be having right now.
