WWE star John Cena got a few batting tips from Big Bash League (BBL) franchise Sydney Thunder’s skipper Shane Watson. The 40-year-old wrestler is in Australia promoting his upcoming animated movie Ferdinand. The American wrestler held the cricket bat as if he is holding a baseball bat. Former Australian cricketer Watson helped Cena with his stance. The 40-year-old posed for a few photos with Sydney Thunders team members and shared them via his Twitter account.
Cena posted a funny caption with the photos too. Here’s his tweet:

Watson was made the captain of Sydney Thunders team in the previous season after Michael Hussey retired from all forms of cricket. Sydney Thunders had a horrible previous season as they finished at the bottom of the table with 3 wins from 8 games. They will be looking to rejuvenate themselves this year.
The BBL season 2017-18 kicks off on December 9th between Melbourne Renegades and Sydney Thunders at North Sydney Oval, the latter’s homeground. The final of the tournament will be played on February 4, 2018.
