The outbreak of coronavirus has taken a toll on human existence and more than 80,000 deaths have been registered across the globe. Talking about India, the country has witnessed more than 5000 confirmed cases and 149 deaths have been recorded so far. At a time when many cricketers have contributed in the wake of the pandemic, Amit Mishra also joined hands with Delhi Police to serve the less fortunate.
Suryakumar Yadav also urged everyone to stay at home and lauded the efforts being made by the Maharashtra government to tackle the pandemic. Meanwhile, a funny sledging incident between Shoaib Akhtar and Andrew Flintoff also hogged the attention on Twitter. Flintoff’s sledging remark didn’t go down well as Akhtar dismantled his off stump and it was cartwheeling backwards while the English all-rounder walked back to the pavilion.
Shahid Afridi’s contribution along with his Foundation continued as the former Pakistan skipper distributed ration across Pakistan. Mayank Agarwal, on the other hand, shared an indoor workout video with his wife during their quarantine period. Krunal Pandya also shared a throwback still from the New Zealand tour.
Shoaib Malik, who was suggested by Ramiz Raja to retire from international cricket, took a dig at the commentator by saying that we three (Hafeez, Malik and Raza) should retire together. India Women player Jemimah Rodrigues, who is quite active on social media, shared a hilarious clip for her fans on Twitter amid her quarantine time.
