Due to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, the situation in the whole world has been strenuous since the past couple of months. The life-threatening virus has caused a global crisis and people are suggested to practice self-isolation in such trying times. More than 1 lakh people have died due to the pandemic and governments are trying their best to curb the spread of the novel COVID-19.
The spread of coronavirus has also put the sporting scenario to halt as all major tournaments and matches have either been called off or postponed in the wake of the pandemic. During the isolation period, sportspersons including cricketers are left with no choice but to spend their idle time on social media. Many cricketers are currently spotted indulging in Question & Answer sessions on Twitter or live chats on Instagram.
Amid the quarantine period, many cricket fans are also coming up with new and innovative ideas that have been trending across social media. Many fans have resorted to impersonating great cricketers and copying their batting and bowling actions. Recently, a fan impersonated New Zealand stalwart Brendon McCullum and uploaded the video on Twitter. The Kiwi star also responded to the video and lauded the fan for his efforts.

A Twitter user had posted videos of himself impersonating New Zealand veteran cricketers Ross Taylor and Brendon McCullum. “Now how about this for an impression of former @BLACKCAPS skipper and one of the greatest living New Zealanders @Bazmccullum!” wrote the Twitter user.
McCullum responded by saying, “Not bad. Probably a little more technically correct than the real thing!”
