Drake, the acclaimed Canadian rapper with multiple Grammy Awards to his name, is turning his attention to the Indian Premier League finals in Chennai this Sunday.

On Saturday, Drake took to his Instagram Stories and shared a screenshot of him placing a bet on KKR in its match against SRH in the IPL finals today. The screenshot claimed that he had a 1.70 odds of winning the bet. His bet is worth $250,000, and its estimated payout is $425,000. Drake wrote along with the screenshot, “Since @ovorajaju team is out, I am going with KKR for my first ever cricket bet (teary-eyed laughter emoji) Korbo Lorbo Jeetbo.”

Drake’s interest in the Indian Premier League finals extends beyond mere curiosity; it’s also tied to a personal investment. The Grammy-winning rapper recently disclosed that he placed his “first ever cricket bet” on actor Shah Rukh Khan’s team, the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). This decision was influenced by his manager, Sureshkumar Subramaniam, known on Instagram as @ovorajaju. While Subramaniam’s own team preference remains undisclosed, it’s evident that both he and Drake will be eagerly watching the match, rooting for KKR’s success. For Drake, this wager represents more than just a financial stake—it’s a symbol of his trust and support for Shah Rukh’s team in the IPL.

KKR ended the league stage at the top of the points table, with nine victories, three defeats, and two no results, totaling 20 points. They advanced directly to the final after beating SRH in the first qualifier. SRH had a second chance at the title in qualifier two against Rajasthan Royals (RR), and they made the most of it, defeating the Men in Pink by 36 runs.

The IPL finals, which begin at 7 p.m. tonight at Chennai’s MA Chidambaram Stadium, are also expected to draw some star-studded KKR followers. These include Shah Rukh and his family, which includes wife Gauri Khan, kids Aryan Khan and AbRam Khan, daughter Suhana Khan, her pals Ananya Panday and Shanaya Kapoor, and KKR co-owners Juhi Chawla and Jay Mehta. Imagine Dragons, an American band, is also scheduled to perform at the closing ceremony at 6 p.m today.
