At a time when the whole world is grappling with the COVID-19 outbreak, many players have been busy in entertaining fans with their social media posts. Former India international Wasim Jaffer hogged the limelight yet again as he shared an all-time ODI XI. The team consisted of many Indian stalwarts including the likes of Kohli, Dhoni and Sachin.

However, two omissions– Rahul Dravid and Virender Sehwag– irked many fans. Harbhajan Singh also questioned Jaffer’s decision to leave out Sehwag from the squad. Responding to Harbhajan, Jaffer asked the off-spinner whom he would drop (Sachin, Ganguly or Rohit) to slot Sehwag into the side.

Meanwhile, to flag off the resumption of international cricket, West Indies side arrived in England to lock horns with them in a three-match Test series starting next month. England Cricket welcomed the Caribbean side and expressed their anticipation ahead of the series.

A month before the series, the ICC also announced two significant changes in the post-coronavirus world. The ICC announced the ban on saliva and introduced like-for-like replacement in Test cricket. These two changes are anticipated to have a significant impact on the future of the sport.

Former Pakistan skipper Younis Khan is set to return to the sport as he was appointed by the PCB as the team’s batting coach for England tour. Younis expressed his feeling upon his appointment and said that he feels honoured to serve Pakistan again.
