India played some dominant cricket in the group stages of the 2019 World Cup. However, the 2011 Champions, suffered a heartbreaking defeat to New Zealand in the semifinals.

England went on to win the 2019 World Cup by beating New Zealand in some controversial manner in the super-over as they were declared the winner on the boundary-count rule.

Cena will be next seen in the ninth instalment of the Fast and Furious franchise. Some of the biggest Hollywood stars like Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodrigues, Tyrese Gibson and Charlize Theron will be part of the movie.

When John Cena was asked how his character would sledge an opponent during a cricket match with a dialogue from the movie, he said, “You can’t run from your past and yours just caught up!”

Fast and Furious 9 will be releasing on June 25, 2021, in India.
