Assisted by his two children, Aryavir and Vedant, legendary India opener Virender Sehwag on Friday shared a couple of tips about the techniques of batting, bowling and catching with his eager World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) pupils -- Dolph Ziggler and Charlotte.

Sehwag, who recently retired from all forms of international cricket and is set to play in the upcoming Masters Champions League as skipper of the Gemini Arabians, took to Twitter to post some pictures of the professional wrestling stars with his children.

Dolph and Charlotte both enjoyed the experience of batting against the former off-spinner. They also had the chance to bowl at Sehwag, who semed to resist his legendary aggressive approach of smashing the ball over the boundary.

Both Dolph and Charlotte showed plenty of promise as up-and-coming cricketers, having played baseball and softball
respectively to a high standard in the US.

"That was an awesome experience, and we're grateful to Virender for giving us our first taste of playing cricket," said Dolph.

WWE Live India will see Dolph and Charlotte join WWE Superstars including World Heavyweight Champion Roman Reigns, Big Show, Demon Kane, and many more at the Indira Gandhi Indoor Stadium tonight and tomorrow.

WWE fans will see history being made as former World Kabaddi League champion, Lovepreet Singh, and two-time Kushti national heavyweight champion, Satinder Del Pal, make their WWE in-ring debuts in their home nation.
