India is currently into its fourth phase of lockdown. The country has so far reported 130,000+ cases and 4,000+ deaths due to Covid-19. Maharashtra is the worst affected state, where the numbers of confirmed cases have crossed 50,000. Meanwhile, cricketers are spending time at their respective homes and trying different things to entertain their fans and followers.
Following the bandwagon, former India cricketer Yuvraj Singh posted a throwback picture with former teammates Virender Sehwag, VVS Laxman and Ashish Nehra. In the photo, all four former India superstars can be seen lined up in phone booths next to each other.
“When your parents don’t pay your mobile phone bill after a bad performance! #throwback to days without @rd.nehra @virendersehwag @vvslaxman281,” Yuvraj captioned the photo while remembering the days before mobile phones.

Earlier, Yuvraj took to social media and began the ‘Keep it Up’ challenge. He shared a video of himself bouncing the ball with the edge of his bat. The 38-year-old had nominated legendary cricketer Sachin Tendulkar, Rohit Sharma and veteran spinner Harbhajan Singh to take up the challenge.
Sachin had responded to Yuvi’s task by adding a twist. He turned blindfolded and threw the challenge back to the Chandigarh-born cricketer.
“Yuvi, you had given me a very easy option. So now I am giving you a difficult option. I am nominating you, my friend, come on, do it for me buddy,” said Tendulkar while juggling the ball in the video.
However, after nominating Yuvi for a difficult challenge, the 47-year-old revealed that he could see through the blindfold.
I am challenging you back @YUVSTRONG12, but this time with a twist!!👀🙅🏻♂️😉
