Sports stars from the world of tennis, athletics and football have been known to try their hands at cricket over the years. Be it tennis sensation Roger Federer or sprint king Usain Bolt, they have both been pictured enjoying a hit with bat in hand. But the latest to join the ranks is WWE superstar John Cena. And the man who had the opportunity to spend time in the middle with him is none other than former Australia all-rounder Shane Watson.

Taking to Twitter, Watson posted a photo which read: “Awesome day with @JohnCena. Only the best bats for this champion! @sg_cricket @ThunderBBL”

In fact, former speedster Mitchell Johnson even like the tweet as fans went ga-ga to see their favourite wrestler try his hand at the gentleman’s game.

Indian fans were more than happy to see Cena walk on the pitch. There is more entertainment in store for Indian fans who love the WWE as current EVP Talent, Live Events & Creative head of WWE Triple H (real name - Paul Michael Levesque) has agreed to enter the ring in New Delhi when the much-anticipated India Tour of the WWE gets underway on December 8. And he has said that he will take on none other than former WWE champion Jinder Mahal.

Delhi is all set to host the WWE LIVE show which is scheduled to take place on December 9. The show will feature Jinder Mahal, Roman Reigns, Finn Balor, Braun Strowman, Alexa Bliss, Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins, The Miz, Sasha Banks and Bayley.
