What should you expect from:
The Nawab of Najafgarh used to hum old Bollywood songs while batting and put the bowlers away to the fence with absolute ease. He has been a destroyer of even the best of bowling attacks and one could expect the same when he steps onto the iB Cricket field. If you are lucky enough, you might also get to listen to some of his tunes which should be great fun to watch. Watching Viru toy with the bowling after a while should be a fan’s delight.
Brendon McCullum is still playing cricket in various leagues across the world. However, age is quickly catching up on him and the former Kiwi cricketer isn’t able to smash the bowlers over the fence as he used to do. But, when on the iB Cricket field, he certainly came come out as the boss. Therefore, you will be graced to witness McCullum dance down the track to the fast bowlers. He will look to smash ’em over the boundary on the off-side.
