The Ox Shines as Arsenal players play cricket with Indian Premier League & Essex cricketers

Great bowlimg action

Great bowling action or is it a celebration? Who can tell?

Arsenal Football Club invited IPL and and Essex cricketers, Ravi Bopara and Ryan ten Doeschate to the Arsenal Training Ground to take part in a cricket challenge earlier this month.

 The cricket duo taught newcomers to the sport David Ospina and Gabriel how to bowl, before taking part in a bowling competition.

 Each side bowled 6 times, with the team with the highest total amounts of wickets the winner.

 The teams were:

 Team 1: Ravi Bopara, Theo Walcott, Gabriel

Team 2: Ryan ten Doeschate, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, David Opsina

Teams meet :)

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain shone during the competition, hitting the stumps twice for his team before beating Theo Walcott in the bowl off when scores were tied at 5 all.

 

Now please Arsene let the Ox shine at St James Park tomorrow.

      Apologies Amy. I received an email from Tom Bennett at the club with the file and he always asked me to Thanks AFC Media.

      So it was totally unintentional and I will add now. Dave
