WHATZAT! CHEERLEADERS FOR INDIAN CRICKET?

The thud you can hear is the sound of jaws dropping at MCC: India’s first cheerleading squad is about to high-kick its way into the venerable sport of cricket.

On Friday the Washington Redskins cheerleaders, usually found urging on the American football side of the same name, will make their subcontinental debut when they take to the field for the Bangalore Royal Challengers, the newly created cricket team.

FYI Jaunts, only Greeks from the island of Corfu play cricket!

 

Myself I'm just a supporter of the QL Cricket Tema, but I also volunteer for being the Cheerleaders' Manager!

Bowler launched a ball at him, he swung at it - missed - did a pirouette and knocked the bails for SIX.   HEE HEE

I've only seen snippets of a cricket game but I have watched a lot of American football and I just can't picture in my mind how this cheerleading squad is going to pull this off.  lol - there is a reason way the ML baseball league doesn't have cheerleaders.
