The excitement is palpable in the air as the ODI World Cup 2023 made its grand return to Indian soil after nearly a decade. With the surge in cricket’s popularity and iconic figures like Virat Kohli capturing hearts not just with their skills but also their style, the sport has now become a global phenomenon, attracting a wider audience. Recently, a renowned YouTuber, IShowSpeed, touched down in India to show his support for the host nation during the world event.
Who is IShowSpeed?
IShowSpeed’s real name is Darren Jason and he shot to fame in 2021 when his viral video clips spread like wildfire across social media, catapulting him to internet stardom. With an impressive fan base of over 20 million subscribers on YouTube, he has become one of the most influential figures in the digital world.
Although IShowSpeed is an ardent fan of football legend Cristiano Ronaldo, the internet star’s interest recently shifted to cricket as well. His support for India’s batting maestro Kohli and his visit to the subcontinent to attend ODI World Cup 2023 matches clearly indicate the same.

What set tongues wagging and cameras flashing on his arrival in Inda was IShowSpeed’s distinctive choice of attire. He was spotted playing cricket in a dhoti paired with a ‘Virat Kohli jersey’. The video of it soon went viral on the internet.
In the viral clip, IShowSpeed can be seen surrounded by eager fans as he wields a cricket bat, showcasing his love for the sport. The moment that stole the show, however, was when he managed to hit the ball, followed by a spontaneous rendition of Ronaldo’s famous ‘Siuuu’ celebration. This unexpected homage to the football legend added an extra layer of entertainment to the whole spectacle.
