While the Great Khali is primarily known for his wrestling, when the former World Heavyweight Champion tried cricket, it seems like he was not too bad at it either. In fact, in a video shared by the wrestler himself on social media, Khali can be seen enjoying some gully cricket. The 7 feet 1 inch-tall wrestler made a sweet connection with the bat and even though the stroke was powered by the bottom hand, the ball went for a six.
In a video shared by the wrestler himself on his official Instagram profile, the Great Khali was having a fun time with some gully cricket and was facing a delivery. The giant would produce a clean strike with just one hand as the ball sailed well beyond the boundary.
Khali too was clearly impressed with the way he executed the shot and put his hands up donning a wide grin. The video of his cricketing adventure has instantly become a hit online.
Take a look at the video here:
