The nationwide lockdown has forced cricketers to stay indoors and keep themselves physically toned at the gym or confined practice areas.
With no cricket to look forward to, the action has now shifted online with stars interacting with each other through social media platforms.
This act keeps them relevant among their fan base as well as entertaining through their witty comments and reference.
Recently, India’s Test opener Mayank Agarwal went upside down as a part of ‘balance training’ and asked his followers to rate his drill on a scale of one to ten.
“On a scale of 1 to 10, the head rush I get when I’m trying to explore the ‘Upside Down’ is ELEVEN. #BalanceTraining #FlashbackFriday”, Mayank wrote.
To which, Indian captain Virat Kohli chipped in with his witty comment and said, “Kya ho gaya bhai (What happened brother). Lockdown has reached unbearable limits I guess.”
Kohli himself has lit the internet on fire by sharing a sneak peek into his insane training drills and weightlifting prowesses.
An ardent fan of spending hours at the gym, Kohli implied that the lockdown had etched its effect on the opener.
Then, Mayank hilariously used a Paatal Lok reference to reply to his Test captain, “Dharti nahi toh, PAATAL LOK hi sahi.”
Here’s the post:
The Anushka Sharma produced show, which was released on Amazon Prime, has received great reviews of-late.
Both Mayank and Virat last featured in a competitive international match back in February this year, during the two-match Test series in New Zealand. Since then, the South Africa ODI series, along with the Indian Premier League (IPL) was suspended indefinitely.
