Home quarantine amid Coronavirus pandemic has left the cricketers with nothing much to do. While some of them are busy spending time with their loved ones, few are making sure they interact with their fans on social media. The likes of Shreyas Iyer and Kane Williamson, however, are still itching to play it seems and have included their pet dogs in their team for the same.
Recently the New Zealand skipper posted a video on his official Instagram handle playing with his dog Sandy. In the video, it could be seen that Williamson is edging the ball purposely to his dog who jumps and takes a fantastic catch. Shreyas Iyer too tried doing the same with his dog Bretty.
However, they failed in their first attempt as Bretty failed to latch on to the ball after timing its jump perfectly. Though according to India’s number four went on to inform that it took a while for Bretty to match Sandy but it ran to celebrate after finally catching one.
“Betty wanted to have a go too after watching Kane Williamson’s beautiful dog Sandy nail that catch. Took Betty a while but she’s got her first catch and immediately ran to celebrate,” Shreyas Iyer captioned the video on Twitter.
Here’s his post:
