Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is a well known name in the world of WWE. He has millions of fans all over the world including India. Soon after the wrestler turned a Hollywood actor, his fan following has only increased. Now his film ‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle’ is all set to be released on December 29 globally. For the promotion of his film, he has arrived in India.
The Rock is a champion athlete and has a natural aptitude for understanding sports. And this talent of his came out publicly when he tried to understand the game of cricket. During the promotions, the ‘Fast & Furious’ star called cricket a national obsession for India and was seen decoding some hand gestures of cricket umpires. Star Sports has uploaded a video of The Rock trying to figure out what gestures of the umpire mean.
The first gesture had umpire raising his finger to indicate that the player is out but The Rock interprets this as umpire telling him that if he joins the field, he would be number one. This guess, obviously, was not only wrong but also miles apart from what it actually means.
For his guesses, the entire situation turned into a hilarious scene. The fun continued as Johnson went on to make a couple of more funny wrong guesses. But his fans were left surprised when he guessed M S Dhoni’s signature helicopter shot correctly in first attempt. And then, few other correct guesses followed.
Watch the video in the tweet below to see all that happened:

Towards the end of the video, The Rock said that he would definitely like to try playing cricket and sent out his wishes to the cricket team. And here is how Twitter responded to Johnson’s fun-filled video:
