Shane Watson plays cricket with John Cena

Before former Australian vice-captain Shane Watson will resume his duties as captain for Sydney Thunders in a Big Bash League clash against Melbourne Renegades on December 9, he was given another task. The 36-year old had to teach WWE superstar John Cena how to play a cricket.

The 16-time World Champion Cena, who is currently in Australia to promote his upcoming animated feature film “Ferdinand”, tried his hands in cricket and found himself struggling. In a tweet, Cena wrote, “Read some #Ferdinand, played some Cricket (poorly) and had a great time the past few days in Sydney until the teacher took attendance in class and I was marked absent…”

Watson, who was teaching Cena a thing or two about the sport, also shared an image on Twitter, in which he was seen giving some batting tips to the wrestler. The all-rounder, in the tweet, said, “Awesome day with @JohnCena. Only the best bats for this champion!”

The Big Bash is set to kick off on Saturday, December 9th at North Sydney Oval with the Melbourne Renegades taking on Watson’s Sydney Thunder. The grand finale of the tournament has been scheduled for Sunday, February 4th.
