India captain Virat Kohli seems to be impressed with his good friend Harry Kane’s cricket skills. The Tottenham Hotspur star has been impressing cricket fans across the globe with his performances during indoor cricket sessions at their training center in London.
We have often seen cricketers involved in a game of football as part of their pre-match warm-up routines but the vice-versa seems to be true for the Tottenham Hotspur stars. Harry Kane along with his Spurs teammates were spotted playing indoor cricket with a tennis ball and the skipper flaunted his skills with the bat.
Harry Kane was seen defending well and smashing a few as he enjoyed the session of indoor cricket. The England international perfectly ducked for bouncers and attacked when the ball was in his slot.
Kane shared a clip of his session on social media and tagged his good friend and Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Virat Kohli.
“Got a match winning T20 knock in me I reckon. Face with tears of joyCricket bat and ball Any places going for @RCBTweets in the @IPL next season @imVkohli??” Kane wrote in his post.
Virat Kohli responded to Harry Kane, saying: “Haha good skills mate. Maybe we can get you in as a counter attacking batsman.”
Virat Kohli might as well need an extra bowler for Team India as they were clearly short of the 6th bowling option during the 1st ODI against Australia on Friday. Kohli’s men were handed a 66-run thrashing by the hosts who have sealed a 1-0 lead in the 3-match series.
Skipper Kohli had a poor outing with the bat as he was dismissed for 21 at the Sydney Cricket Ground despite getting a reprieve early on in his innings. Hardik Pandya impressed at No. 6, hitting 90 but his effort was not enough as India fell 67-run short of a 375-run target.
