It is very rare to witness football players warming up or playing a game of cricket. But English Premier League (EPL) side Tottenham Hotspur engaged in an indoor cricket session at the club’s training center.
Spurs’ midfielder Dele Alli grabbed a stunning catch and the video clip of the 24-year-old is going viral on social media.
Alli can be seen taking a sensational catch while standing at mid-on position. In the video shared by Alli himself, the Tottenham Hotspur star can be seen using his foot to deflect the ball onto his hands with a perfect first touch
A left-hander batsman hits the ball straight at Alli after which the midfielder completes the staggering catch with his left hand.
The fielders, including Gareth Bale, left in awe of Alli’s effort. Alli can be later seen looking into the camera and posing.
Alli posted a video on Instagram and wrote the caption, “I think Joe Hart was impressed with this one.”

Apart from this, Spurs are in red hot form in this EPL season. Jose Mourinho’s men are on top of the league table with 20 points from 9 matches. They are tied on points with defending champions Liverpool but are at the top spot due to a better goal difference.
They clinched a 2-0 win against Manchester City this weekend with Son Heung-min and Giovani Lo Celso netting goals.
