Caroline Wozniacki trades tennis racquet for cricket bat.
World No.1 Caroline Wozniacki traded her tennis racquet for a cricket bat earlier today when she was introduced to the national Australian game at the Melbourne Cricket Ground by Victorian Bushrangers Peter Siddle and Aaron Finch.
The Danish beauty knew very little about cricket- she had never played or watched the sport until today and was particularly amazed by the size of the MCG.
Finch showed Wozniacki how to bat and the likeable blonde often had trouble connecting with the ball, laughing at her many failed attempts. When she eventually worked out how to bat, she nearly cleaned up the cameraman and couldn't hide the huge grin off her face. Siddle then showed the in-form Dane how to bowl.
After learning the basics of cricket, Siddle and Finch had a brief chat with Wozniacki asking her about her upcoming matches, and she too asked them about the Bushrangers' latest form.
Wozniacki was all smiles, loving the experience and was invited to the Bushrangers' next Twenty20 match on Saturday night. The top seed will be in action on Rod Laver Arena tomorrow morning taking on No.29 seed Dominika Cibulkova of Slovakia.
