USAIN BOLT is 16/1 to play professional cricket in Australia this year according to Ladbrokes.

The Jamaican is chalked up at 16/1 to swap the Olympic Stadium for the MCG as Bolt looks to put his plans to play for Manchester United on hold and ply his trade for a cricket team in the Big Bash League down under.

And whoever snaps up the fastest man alive it's 50/1 the showman delivers on a different big stage by hitting a six, or there's a 100/1 chance Bolt takes a wicket of a fellow countryman.

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes: "The sporting world is Bolt's oyster at the moment but the odds suggest he won't be able to stroll through a cricket game as easily as he does the 100 metres."
