The life-threatening virus has threatened human existence and people are suggested to stay indoors in such a critical condition. More than 1.9 lakh people across the world have died due to the pandemic and governments are trying their best to curb the spread of COVID-19.

The stern situation has also put the sporting scenario at a halt as all major sporting events– From Tokyo Olympics to IPL 2020– have either been called off or postponed to tackle the pandemic. With no sports in the frame, sportspersons including cricketers are left with no choice but to spend their idle quarantine time on social media.
