Tennis star Novak Djokovic, who is currently taking part in the ATP World Tour Finals in London took to Twitter to suggest a candidate for the England cricket team. The 32-year-old shared a photo with his chauffeur, Imran Bashir, who was seen holding a trophy in his hand and described him as a โ€œfamous batsmanโ€ for his local cricket team.

โ€œImran Bashir (my chauffeur for the #NittoATPFinals) has been part of #TeamDjokovic for 10 years! He is also a famous batsman for his local #cricket team. He received this trophy for best batsman of the year and we need to get it out there,โ€ tweeted Djokovic.

He further asked England coach Trevor Bayliss to keep an eye on Bashir for future selection. โ€œ#TrevorBayliss @englandcricket, you should keep your eye on Imran. I think he is a strong candidate for your team,โ€ Djokovic wrote.

This hilarious tweet then prompted the International Cricket Council (ICC) to invite him for a net session in the next year’s cricket world cup in June. โ€œWe know you try to avoid nets as a tennis player, but if you feel like mixing up your Wimbledon preparation next year, come down and have a net session at the Cricket World Cup!,โ€ tweeted ICC.

Djokovic produced a masterful display to beat South Africaโ€™s Anderson 6-2 6-2 on Saturday to set up an ATP Finals title showdown with Alexander Zverev.
