United Kingdom's Prime Minister Rishi Sunak engaged in a game of cricket with England's junior and senior cricketers in indoor nets session as the country's supreme leader shared a video of the same. With Sunak hilariously asking whether he is ready to play for the national side, England cricket team's official social media handle recommended a few more training sessions.

Sunak notably faced a few deliveries from veteran England seamer James Anderson. Before facing him, the 43-year-old politician revealed having some net practice and asked the Lancashire cricketer about the speed at which he is going to bowl. Sunak was notably bowled by a young bowler and he later clicked pictures with several cricketers, including differently-abled ones.
