Google's Indian-American CEO Sundar Pichai has anticipated that India and England would face-off in the finals of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 and said he was 'establishing' for the men dressed in blue to develop triumphant.

Depicting himself as an enthusiastic cricket fan, the 46-year-old head of California-based web giant said that when he went to the US, he discovered baseball somewhat testing.

"It (ICC Cricket World Cup final match) should be (between) England and India. But, you know, Australia and New Zealand, these are all very, very good teams," Pichai told a Washington audience that included US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and top corporate executives from India and the US during the India Ideas Summit of USIBC wherein he received the Global Leadership Award on Wednesday.
He was answering to USIBC president Nisha Desai Biswal who asked 'who do you believe is going to play the last match'.

Pichai shared a portion of his cricket and baseball encounters in the United States.

"When I first came here, I tried to kind of adapt to baseball. I have to say it was a bit challenging. In my first game, I was proud because I hit the ball on the back. It's a really good shot in cricket. I was like, well look, what I did. But people didn't appreciate it.

"In cricket when you run, you always take your bat with you. So I also ran between base with my bat as well. So eventually, I realised baseball was a bit difficult. I can adjust on many things, but I'm going to stick to cricket," he said.

"There is a cricket World Cup going on. It's a wonderful tournament... rooting for India to do well. But there's a lot at stake here," Pichai said.
