The pandemic caused by deadly COVID-19 has caused an abrupt halt in sporting activity. Although cricket has surely got underway in England, the possibility of its resumption in India still appears to be far from reality.
As a result, everyone from professional cricketers to cricket fanatics suffers in some way or another.
The fans are desperate to watch their favourite team in action, and the players are frustrated as three months of inactivity might be the longest they haven’t played cricket in their entire career.
One more thing that might worry the cricketers is losing their touch as rustiness does creep in after nearly four months of no cricket.
Meanwhile, Team India’s stylish batsman KL Rahul has shared an emotional post on Instagram that might resonate with every Indian cricketer.
Rahul shared a picture of himself looking affectionately at his cricketing gear.
He wrote, “I miss you.”
The right-handed batsman last featured for his national side when India toured New Zealand in early 2020.
The Mangalore-born batsman was a part of the Indian squad for a home ODI series against South Africa which eventually got cancelled due to coronavirus.
Further, the 13th edition of Indian Premier League (IPL), originally slated to commence from March 29, has been postponed indefinitely.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is keen to conduct the cash-rich league this year. However, considering the worsening situation of COVID-19 in the nation, chances look bleak.
Rahul was all set to captain King XI Punjab (KXIP) this season after their former skipper Ravichandran Ashwin was traded to Delhi Capitals (DC). The swashbuckling batsman is one of the most vital cogs for his franchise.
