Tottenham and England striker Harry Kane swapped his football boots for a cricket bat as he took part in a six-hitting challenge before a Hundred match at Lord’s.

Kane took on Spurs team-mate Matt Doherty in the challenge as the pair tried their best to clear the ropes ahead of London Spirit’s clash with Manchester Originals.

Former England captain and Sky Sports pundit Nasser Hussain was on hand to offer technical advice but the pair did not look too out of place at the makeshift crease.

Kane and Doherty are both cricket lovers and met London Spirit captain Eoin Morgan and Manchester Originals skipper Jos Buttler before the challenge.

Tottenham legend Kane then performed the toss, with Spirit posting 160-6 after electing to bat first. England opener Zak Crawley made 41 and West Indies all-rounder Kieron Pollard smashed four sixes in his 11-ball 34.

Spurs duo Kane and Doherty helped Tottenham kick-start their 2022-23 season with an emphatic 4-1 win over Southampton on Saturday.

The pair will return to action this weekend when Antonio Conte’s side travel across London to face Chelsea.
