"This is a fantastic opportunity for the young football fans of Mumbai and one could truly experience the passion the kids brought in today. I am equally excited for the two winners and hope they enjoy every moment of the road to Brazil, said Gayle."
Mumbai, May 8 - Royal Challengers Bangalore explosive batsman Chris Gayle announced the names of two Mumbai kids who would be flying to Brazil for the FIFA World Cup as official flag bearers.

The adidas FIFA Fairplay Flag Bearers Programme hunted down the duo -- Drishti Punjabi and Pranjal Agarwal -- out of 150 kids at the Priyadarshini Park here Wednesday. The two will head to Sao Paulo for a pre-quarter-final July 1 as the official FIFA flag bearers.

This is a fantastic opportunity for the young football fans of Mumbai and one could truly experience the passion the kids brought in today. I am equally excited for the two winners and hope they enjoy every moment of the road to Brazil, said Gayle.

New Delhi's Mihir Batra and Jasen Moses were already selected earlier in the week and two more kids will be selected from Bangalore May 10.
