David Cameron 'middle-stumped' by local cricketer in Mumbai!

London, February 19 (ANI): British Prime Minister David Cameron was bowled out middle stump by a local boy in India during a friendly match in Mumbai.

During his three-day visit to India, the PM sloped off to Mumbai's famous Oval Maidan, and joined a team of young cricketers for a match.

He managed to strike some ferocious deliveries from local youngsters who flock to the recreation ground in the centre of the city to play.

But after a few lusty blows, Cameron's middle stump was removed by a young bowler named Sachin - named after Sachin Tendulkar, the legendary cricketer who once gave a signed bat to the Prime Minister, the Daily Mail reported.

However, members of the England women's squad, who have been helping train boys and girls through the ECB-backed Global Cricket School while in town for the World Cup, praised Cameron's skills.

"He's got used the rough surface very quickly," said former England captain Clare Connor, adding "that's a brilliant cover drive", just before Cameron almost got himself out. (ANI)
