Cricket is by far the most followed sport in the Indian subcontinent. Even globally, cricket is the second most followed sport after football. However, the reach of this sport is limited, as Cricket is not as popular in the western countries as it is in the subcontinent.

Hence, to expect WWE Superstars, most of whom are from the Americas, is a bit unrealistic. However, it is surprising to know that many WWE Superstars have actually tried their hands at a game which is completely new to them.

Here are five instances when WWE Superstars dabbled in cricket.

#5 Alberto Del Rio

Alberto Del Rio, who is a 4-time World Champion in WWE, tried his luck with the bat and ball when he visited India in 2016. Alberto Del Rio visited Bengaluru as a part of his special 3-day visit to India. Before reaching Bengaluru, Del Rio visited Kolkata to meet his fans and played a friendly game of football with the East Bengal FC.

In Bengaluru, the Mexican Aristocrat met with the Special Olympics Bharat team and played a friendly game of cricket with the kids.

While Del Rio did admit that the game was a little difficult to understand as he knew nothing about it, he thoroughly enjoyed playing with the kids.
