While football remains as the first love of England skipper Harry Kane, the Tottenham Hotspur striker is occasionally spotted casually playing cricket with his teammates.
Though he hardly misses the net while playing for England and Spurs, Kane he has often expressed confidence over his secondary skill (cricket), especially over applying it in the Indian Premier League (IPL).
And with IPL 2021 set to begin in late March, all eight franchises submitted the list of their released and retained players for the new campaign on Wednesday, January 20.
Virat Kohli-led RCB raised a few eyebrows with their decision to release as many as 10 players, including Aaron Finch, Moeen Ali, Chris Morris, from the squad, despite making it to the playoffs last season.
Reacting to the same, Kane took to Twitter and teased the franchise by saying that he was ‘disappointed’ to have not been selected in the team for the upcoming season.
“Bit disappointed not to be selected but nothing I can do now. Will still be cheering the boys on,” Kane wrote.
Notably, Kane and Kohli also share a good camaraderie, apart from his admiration for RCB The two stalwarts have shared a few banters over the past, on social media. Even Virat had reacted to a video of Kane flaunting his cricket skills.
