Video: Tottenham defender Michael Dawson shows off his cricket skills

Posted by - April 18, 2013 - Football videos, Tottenham

Spurs centre-back Michael Dawson showed he’s not too shabby with a cricket bat after a session in the nets with England bowler Stuart Broad.

Dawson said: “It’s been a long time since I’ve had a game of cricket.

“When I put the pads on and the glove and what have you, get down and then he decides to bowl at 90mph at me the first ball I see. Well, I didn’t actually see it – that was the problem!”

But he’d soon got his eye in and was picking balls from the bowling machine at 80mph, impressing Broad in the process.
