In a battle between sports, Novak Djokovic came out on top by hitting Shane Warne for a six during a charity event on Thursday at the Margaret Court Arena in Melbourne. Djokovic also managed to beat Warne in a bowl out later (though with a bit of cheating) after taking tips from Aaron Finch.

Novak Djokovic showed off his cricketing skills on Thursday night when he came up against Australia's spin legend Shane Warne by hitting him for a six with his racket. In a charity event hosted by the Serbian for his “Novak Djokovic Foundation”, at the Margaret Court Arena in Melbourne, Warne bowled Djokovic with his first ball.

However, after taking some tips from another cricketer Aaron Finch, Djokovic hit the next ball into the crowd and then hit Warne for a huge six in the final ball using his racquet. During the event, both of them faced off each other in a bowl out, where Djokovic had the volunteers move the stumps in order to make his ball hit the target leading to funny banter between him and Warne.

Djokovic is currently gearing up for his title defence of the Australian open which is about to start on Monday, January 16.
