There is no exaggeration when we say that cricket is not just a sport but a religion for many in South Asia.

Majority of the former and current Pakistani stars started playing cricket on streets of their villages, towns and cities and later represented their country at the international level.

From Wasim Akram to Inzamam-ul-Haq and Babar Azam — all are the outcome of the street cricket. It is a fact that the game of cricket evolved with the passage of time.

From Test, ODIs, T20s and now T10, cricket formats are getting a makeover with every passing day.

A viral video somewhere in Pakistan has garnered the attention of social media users where the cricket players introduced their own way of running between the wickets.

Indeed, they mixed the cricket with motorsport and got praised from the netizens.

“Cricket and Motorsport …. What an idea…. I think we need to reconsider running between the wickets concept altogether… what says you @ICC @ICCMediaComms, ???” tweeted famous singer and a UAE resident Fakhr-e-Alam.

Alam recently got the UAE Golden visa.

While some praised the creativity of the players, others wondered how they can play a match using auto rickshaws when the petrol prices are too high.
