WATCH: Ish Sodhi turns rapper during self-isolation; comes up with a song on Coronavirus

The deadly Coronavirus has impacted people across the globe, and the whole world has gone standstill. People are self-isolating themselves to stop the spread of the disease. Many sports personalities, including cricketers, have returned to their homes, and are taking part in the isolation process.

Those cricketers who were out for a tournament or series have been asked by the authorities to quarantine themselves for 14 days. New Zealand cricketer Ish Sodhi has also gone into a 14-day self-isolation process after he returned from a three-match ODI series against Australia.


The Kiwis played the first ODI behind closed doors at Sydney Cricket Ground, but the last 2 ODIs were indefinitely postponed due to the outbreak of Covid-19.

While in self-isolation, the Black Caps spinner Sodhi came up with a song on Coronavirus.


The Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Rajasthan Royals, for whom Sodhi has played in the previous seasons, has posted a video on Twitter.

In the video, Sodhi can be seen singing, “Coronavirus, please don’t get me today. Coronavirus, I still got cricket to play. I know what is Covid-19, I am sick of hearing your name on my TV screen.”

“Isolate with me; it’s not what it may seem. Avoid the six symptoms of Covid-19. Covid, what’s the matter with you? I heard you walk around the skies as the bad**s flu,” he further sings.


Sodhi has only played eight matches in IPL, in which he has taken nine wickets with 3/26 being his best. The 27-year-old cricketer was supposed to join the Royals as a spin-consultant in IPL 2020, but the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) postponed the lucrative league due to coronavirus outbreak.
