Germany’s FIFA World Cup-winning forward, Thomas Mueller, on Monday took to social media to show his support for the Indian cricket team in the ongoing ICC World Cup 2019.

Emerging as an unexpected fan of the India cricket team, Mueller, a Bayern Munich product, declared his fondness for the two-time World Cup winners.
