Cricket fans will have a chance to see World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) superstar John Cena wielding a cricket bat once again as Javed Afridi, owner of Pakistan Super League franchise Peshawar Zalmi, on Saturday (December 2) said that the wrestler would soon bat for Peshawar Zalmi foundation.

An avid sports lover, i always wanted to pursue a career in football. But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan.
You will never walk alone.
