IPL 2021: It is a common sight to see cricketers playing football, but it is a rare thing to see footballers walking between the 22 yards. On Friday, Tottenham Hotspurs forward Harry Kane shared a video of him playing cricket with his teammates. Showcasing his batting prowess he asked the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) skipper Virat Kohli if they have a place for him in IPL 2021.
He wrote, “Got a match-winning T20 knock in me I reckon. Face with tears of joy. Cricket bat and ball. Any places going for @RCBTweets in the @IPL next season @imVkohli??”.
To this, the Indian skipper on Saturday responded, “Haha good skills mate. Maybe we can get you in as a counter-attacking batsman.”
Kane’s video had also got a response from former England batsman Kevin Pietersen, who asked about the left-arm pacer whose bouncers Kane was evading.
The RCB franchise, in response jokingly tweeted that they are looking to reserve the No. 10 jersey for the England player.
