Bollywood actor Arjun Kapoor took to Instagram on Wednesday where he shared a hilarious video of a fan playing cricket on his own amid the nationwide lockdown. While posting the video, Arjun tagged the Indian skipper, Virat Kohli, and asked the latter whether he can relate to the person in the video.
In the video, a person can be seen bowling, then hitting the ball, and in the end, running himself out as old Hindi songs are being played in the background. Arjun captioned the video with laughing emojis and wrote: “All cricket lovers right now? @virat.kohli do you relate??”
Cricket, much like other sports, has witnessed some crazy effects from the coronavirus, and players are forced to stay at home for more than a couple of months now due to the ongoing health crisis. Even during the time away from cricket, Virat Kohli is working on his fitness and looking to maintain his shape to stay ready to return to the field.
On Tuesday, Kohli posted a workout video on Instagram that impressed his Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) teammate and close friend AB de Villiers along with his fans. Virat was expected to lead RCB in the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League, but the lucrative league has been postponed indefinitely by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
The tournament was initially scheduled to start on March 19, but was first postponed to April 15. But with the lockdown also extended, the BCCI decided to suspend the IPL until further notice.
While BCCI is yet to take a call on the IPL, a top BCCI official had said that if the IPL didn’t take place it could cost the board half-a-billion dollars.
