Amid coronavirus pandemic followed by the worldwide lockdown, cricketers have increased their activity on social media platforms. Some are participating in Q/A sessions while some are joining different chat sessions in order to interact with their fans and admirers.


Following the bandwagon, former Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh took to Twitter on Thursday and revealed a challenge that he is taking part in an attempt to prevent the spread of deadly COVID-19.

Yuvi also nominated some cricketers like Sachin Tendulkar, Harbhajan Singh and Rohit Sharma for the “keep it up” challenge.


Yuvraj posted a video, in which he kept a ball bouncing on his bat and selected Sachin, Bhajji and Rohit to follow his actions. In the process, the 2011 World Cup winner also made fun of Harbhajan and said the challenge would be easy for batting phenom Sachin and ‘Hitman’ Rohit, but the Jalandhar-born might struggle.

“In these challenging times, I am committed to staying at home to prevent the spread of #Covid19 and will #KeepItUp as long as it is required. I further nominate master blaster @sachin_rt hit man @ImRo45 and turbanator @harbhajan_singh @UN @deespeak,” tweeted Yuvraj.


Minutes later, Harbhajan responded to Yuvraj’s tweet. He accepted the ‘Keep It Up’ challenge and asked the Chandigarh-born to not to take him lightly.

“Don’t underestimate me, Mr Singh.. challenge accepted,” wrote Harbhajan.

Recently, during a live session for a YouTube channel, Yuvraj revealed that India’s star opener KL Rahul and outstanding all-rounder Hardik Pandya have all the capabilities to break his fastest half-ton record in the shortest format of the game.


In the inaugural edition of the T20 World Cup, Yuvraj had smashed a record-breaking 12-ball 50 against England, including six consecutive sixes in an over of English pacer Stuart Broad.
