Revealing that Bashir has received a Best Batsman of the Year trophy in the local cricket circuit, Djokovic asked the England cricket team coach, Trevor Bayliss to keep an “eye on Imran.”

“Imran Bashir (my chauffeur for the #NittoATPFinals) has been part of #TeamDjokovic for 10 years! He is also a famous batsman for his local #cricket ?? team. He received this trophy for best batsman of the year and we need to get it out there!” Djokovic tweeted.



“#TrevorBayliss @englandcricket, you should keep your eye on Imran. I think he is a strong candidate for your team,” he wrote in another tweet.



Global governing body of cricket, International Cricket Council (ICC) also joined the fun conversation inviting Djokovic for a net session at the 2019 Cricket World Cup as part of his preparation for the Wimbledon Championship.

“We know you try to avoid nets as a tennis player, but if you feel like mixing up your @Wimbledon preparation next year, come down and have a net session at the @cricketworldcup!” ICC tweeted.
