Organizers of the 5-week long IPL cricket matches in South Africa said on Wednesday that Katrina Kaif will join a troupe of Indian and South African dancers led by award-winning Indian choreographer Shiamak Davar to perform the Oscar-winning A.R. Rahman song 'Jai Ho' from the movie 'Slumdog Millionaire'.

Shilpa Shetty will also be performing in the cricket finale along with American R&B artist Akon. Katrina Kaif and Shilpa Shetty will be the only Bollywood stars performing at the finale, not a bevy of Bollywood beauties as speculated earlier.

The Caribbean music legend Eddy Grant will also perform the ever popular 'Walking on Sunshine' and his anti-apartheid hit 'Gimme Hope Jo'anna', which became an anthem in the days when the white minority government of South Africa strictly regulated everything from music and song to social gatherings. A perfectly synchronized piece featuring renowned percussionist Shivamani and a group of Indian and South African drummers is also slated for the finale.
