Earlier on Thursday, visiting Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau got a feel of cricket in the national capital. He juggled the bat twice during his walk on the pitch before legendary India captain and all-rounder Kapil Dev stood set to roll his arm over.
Trudeau spent quality time alongside Kapil and another former India captain Mohammad Azharuddin in a small set-up, specifically created for the royal guests to enjoy some time off.
Trudeau then passed on the bat to his son, who practiced a little shadow teeing-off before facing Kapil, who sent throwdowns from half pitch to the youngster. While Kapil was busy bowling, Azhar stood next to the batsman and was seen giving tips to the Prime Minister's ward. Trudeau's son smacked a delivery over Kapil's head to draw a lot of applause.
