Arsenal trio Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Theo Walcott and David Ospina took some time out of our busy schedule to test their cricket skills and gain some tips from a few coaches.
Walcott definitely looked the most comfortable when batting, probably honed through the hours he spends on the golf course on a weekly basis.
While he started off rather timid, Oxlade-Chamberlain soon got comfortable with the bat and delivered a lovely shot which reached the boundary.
However, the best moment in the clip definitely came when Ospina attempted to bowl. The Colombian seemed to mix a long throw with a swift front-flip, all while trying to make it look as ‘cricket’ as possible.
Away from the cricket pitch, the aforementioned trio are finding it hard to cement a place in the first-team due to Arsene Wenger favouring the lineup we ended the last campaign with.

- Nigerian billionaire Aliko Dangote’s bid to takeover Arsenal ‘edging closer’
Also, the arrival of Petr Cech has given the squad a boost and subsequently subjected Ospina to a place on the bench and given that all three a true internationals, the strength of our squad is admirable.
Check out our players putting their cricket skills to the test below.
