“Imran Bashir (my chauffeur for the #NittoATPFinals) has been part of #TeamDjokovic for 10 years! He is also a famous batsman for his local #cricket team. He received this trophy for best batsman of the year and we need to get it out there.’’
He added and asked England coach Trevor Bayliss to have an eye on Bashir for future choice.
