MUMBAI, May 26: In a surprising turn of events, global music sensation Drake has ventured into the world of cricket betting, placing a substantial wager on Shah Rukh Khan’s Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) for the Indian Premier League (IPL) finals. Renowned for his chart-topping hits and affinity for sports betting, the Canadian rapper took to Instagram Stories to announce his debut cricket bet, totaling $250,000 in favor of KKR.

With odds of 1.70 and a potential payout of $425,000, Drake’s high-stakes wager signifies a notable departure from his usual betting ventures, marking his entrance into the realm of cricket betting. In a playful exchange with his manager, Sureshkumar Subramaniam, also known as @ovorajaju, Drake humorously attributed his choice of team to his manager’s preference, expressing his allegiance to KKR with the spirited slogan, “Korbo Lorbo Jeetbo.”

Drake’s unprecedented bet has added an extra layer of excitement to the IPL finals, where KKR, as the league stage leader, prepares to face off against a determined Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) team. The match, scheduled for Sunday at 7 pm IST at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai, promises an electrifying atmosphere with passionate fans and celebrity supporters alike.

Anticipation for the IPL finals is at an all-time high, with notable personalities such as Shah Rukh Khan expected to grace the stands alongside his family and fellow KKR co-owners, Juhi Chawla and Jay Mehta. Adding to the spectacle, a pre-match performance by the American band Imagine Dragons is set to captivate audiences, ensuring an unforgettable evening of cricket entertainment.
