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
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.
