Novak, 36, became desperate before Jackson's next delivery and swapped his cricket bat for a bat.

The tennis star then managed to hurl Jackson's next fast ball high into the stands.

Meanwhile, another video showed Jackson in a very relaxed tennis match against Novak.

Jackson also included a snapshot of himself sharing a joke with Novak backstage at Rod Laver Arena.

The evening also featured cricket champion Steve Smith and tennis star Stefanos Tsitsipas.

Jackson's post acknowledged the support for the Shane Warne Legacy, which offers free heart tests, which were on display at the event.

“A little fun last night.” “Thanks for having me, I had so much fun!” Jackson said in the caption of his story.

This comes after the celebrity announced a personal victory on Instagram after committing to a full year without alcohol following the death of his cricket star father Shane Warne.

In an inspiring display of resilience, Jackson chose to honor his father's memory not with sadness, but with a commitment to health and clarity.

On January 1, Jackson shared the goal he set for himself at the start of 2023, which was to stay alcohol-free the entire year.

He wanted to provide a healthier way to deal with life's hardships, especially after experiencing the devastating loss of his beloved father.

Shane, who rose to fame as the King of Spin, tragically died of a heart attack on March 4, 2022, aged 52, while staying in a luxury villa on the Thai resort island of Koh Samui.
