Ole Gunnar Solsjkaer currently has a wheel on his hands, but he switched it for a bat to give it a go before their departure to Singapore for the next phase of their pre-season campaign.

The lush green outfield of the historic WACA witnessed a temporary change as the Red Devils opted to play cricket. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was seen swinging the bat as he swatted a full toss over to Michael Carrick who responded with a stunning one-handed grab. Watch the video below:
