Djokovic gets invitation from International Cricket Council for net session

Novak Djokovic got an invitation by International Cricket Council (ICC) to have a net session next year at the Cricket World Cup in England ahead of his bid to win his fifth Wimbledon title in July 2019. Everything started from Djokovic's tweet on Saturday night: 'Imran Bashir (my chauffeur for the #NittoATPFinals) has been part of #TeamDjokovic for 10 years! He is also a famous batsman for his local #cricket team.

He received this trophy for best batsman of the year and we need to get it out there!' the Serbian player wrote. Then Djokovic tagged the England coach Trevor Bayliss, sending him a message: 'You should keep your eye on Imran.

I think he is a strong candidate for your team.' The ICC saw the tweet and wrote: 'We know you try to avoid nets as a tennis player, but if you feel like mixing up your Wimbledon preparation next year, come down and have a net session at the Cricket World [email protected]' Commenting on crowd booing Alexander Zverev, Darren Cahill said: 'It was rough but I think the majority didn’t understand what had happened.

There was no need for Sascha to apologise as he did nothing wrong. But he won a lot of fans with the way he handled himself.' Cahill also praised the support that Annabel Croft gave to Zverev: 'Well done last night Annabel.

Total pro and incredibly well handled in a tough moment for Sascha. He did nothing wrong, played sensationally and you got things back on track quickly. Great interview.' ALSO READ: Rafael Nadal: Worse players than David Ferrer won a Grand Slam title
