As you can see in the video above, courtesy of Reddit, an elephant is batting while a man bowls. 

It is not unusual for people living in parts of India and even other Asian countries to live an integrated life with elephants. If you have ever visited these countries, you would've noticed that the elephants walk around the community as a dog would in a residential setting. 

They have even been seen playing football with the locals before, so, it comes as no surprise that this elephant was videoed playing a game of cricket with the locals. 

This fun and lighthearted video got people talking about the current TATA IPL (Indian Premier League) 2024

Fans commented on the video suggesting the cricket-playing elephant form part of the batting order for the Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB). 

Others said that the elephant had great "trunk eye coordination"...
