Former England captain Nasser Hussain was left feeling rather embarrassed after he failed to return a delivery from a child in India earlier today.

The former English international faced two deliveries in the nets from two impressive young spinners – one off-spin, and the other leg-spin.

The action of the leg-spinner reminded the cricket pundits of legendary Australian leggie Shane Warne, whereas the off-spinner was somewhat similar to Graeme Swann.

The first bowl from the leg-spinner was dispatched by Hussain through the covers, a shot that was reminiscent of the past years of the former Brit.

However, events soon took a turn as he missed the next bowl from the off-spinner, probably edging it on the way through.

The 48-year-old playfully vented his anger on the stumps by kicking it off the ground, gleefully smiling after the gesture.

The Sky Sports reporter further disclosed that Hussain, alongside Michael Atherton, would again be taking stance in the nets on Saturday, but this time in proper cricket gear.

The Tamil-Nadu born ace enjoyed a majestic career, both as a playe as well as the captain of England in both formats of the game.

It was against India that he averaged 54.93, his best batting statistics during his illustrious career.

Hussain has been involved in punditry work with Sky Sports commentary team that include English greats like Bob Willis, David Gower, Ian Botham, and former coach David Lloyd.

Hussain has been touring India with the Sky team as England began their campaign in the sub-continent on November 9 in Rajkot.

However, a one-off incident like this certainly doesn’t diminish the greatness of the legend by any stretch of imagination.
