A representative from the German Embassy in India stated that the Chancellor knows that cricket is India’s most beloved sport. “Cricket’s not as big in Germany. Notwithstanding the fact that Germany’s Indian population of over 200,000 is responsible for the sport’s meteoric rise in popularity there, “According to what he had to say. That’s why, the official continued, Scholz sought to familiarise himself with cricket and the significance of the game in India.

The official added, “Furthermore, he wanted to grasp what the RCB, both the men’s and women’s team, mean to the city, especially as the RCB women’s team embarks on the first season of the Women’s Premier League.”
