The Royal couple playing cricket in Pakistan

According to a leading media portal, the royal couple participated in a friendly match wherein two teams were formed consisting of boys and girls from underprivileged backgrounds between ages 10 to 14. William took to the crease for the first few balls — and after missing one, made a fantastic hit out of the field for six runs. And he was applauded by Kate, who stood at the opposite end of the field. Kate’s efforts weren’t quite as successful, as she was caught out twice.

Duke & Duchess with Sachin Tendulkar & Dilip Vengasarkar:

The Duchess is renowned for her love of sports and she and William always love to get competitive. They always seem to find time to show their athletic side during royal visits, including some ice hockey in Sweden and archery in Bhutan. Both of them have always used sports to socialize with people and get acquainted with their culture. This isn't the royal couple's first time on a cricket pitch during an official tour, as they also played some cricket in Mumbai during a 2016 trip to India where they met Sachin Tendulkar and Dilip Vengsarkar.
