Cricket players are often seen playing football during their warm-up sessions but rarely are seen footballers playing a game of cricket. One such video of professional footballers has surfaced, where at Tottenham Hotspur training centre, their midfielder Dele Alli stunned everyone with his extraordinary cricket skills.

A video clip of the English star footballer has gone viral in which he is seen taking a stunning left-handed catch at mid-on position. The batsman, a left-hander, played a shot in the direction of Alli, who was standing at what would be called a mid-on, and the 24-year-old managed to catch it.
The video has been shared from the official Tottenham Hotspur Twitter handle. Alli himself shared it tagging goalkeeper Joe Hart,”I think @joehartofficial was impressed with this one.”

Those in the field, including Eric Dier, Gareth Bale, Harry Kane and Joe Hart, are also seen celebrating wildly.
Jose Mourinho’s men have made a strong start to the EPL season as they are on top of the table with 20 points in 9 games. On Saturday, Son Heung-min gave Tottenham the lead in the fifth minute when Kane pulled both Manchester City center-backs out of position, leaving the way clear for the South Korean to latch onto Tanguy Ndombele’s pass and score. With a one-goal advantage, Tottenham was happy to sit back and deflect City’s attacks.
