We have often seen several cricket players playing football to prepare for matches. It has become a norm for coaches to engage cricketers in football matches to prepare them for a upcoming cricket game. The Indian players even took part in a charity football match against movie stars and the skills of Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni were highlighted to the fans.

Before the ongoing England vs Australia match, another cricketer showed off his impressive football skills in practice. Fast bowler Jofra Archer was seen impressively juggling a football before the match at Edgbaston. Archer is friends with several football players in England and regularly posts photographs with the likes of Raheem Sterling and David de Gea on his social media accounts.
