The WWE superstars are all geared up to set foot in India for the World Wrestling Entertainment Live India event in New Delhi on December 8. 

According to a report from India Today, Irish WWE star and former WWE Universal Championship Finn Balor who is a part of the WWE roster that will perform in India shared his thoughts about cricket and Indian skipper Virat Kohli.

Balor said, "I'd love to meet the captain of the Indian cricket team. I think he is kind of badass and everything (laughs)...You know, I'd actually love to play a practice match and if he could show me a few tricks and teach me the laws of the game which I missed out on. I think it would be fun to have a couple of rounds with him."

The Irish born wrestler also has a few words of praise for the Ireland cricket team. He stated that the William Porterfield led team has been performing well recently and that he would love to see Ireland face India in the future.  

He said, "I absolutely have no idea about the game, never seen much of cricket. I've seen a little bit on TV against Australia. I know Ireland have been doing quite well recently. I've been in Japan and America for the last 15 years, so it's not something I've had much of an opportunity to witness. But obviously, I'm proud and would love to see Ireland and India in the future."

The wrestling fans in India will get to witness live WWE action with some of the top stars Jinder Mahal, Roman Reigns, Braun Strowman, Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, Sasha Banks who are set to enter the squared circle at the Indira Gandhi indoor stadium in New Delhi.
