Travelling is one of the crucial part of life for international cricketers but it has all come to a complete halt due to the coronavirus lockdown. With sporting events around the world either got postponed or canceled, players are stuck inside their houses and have nowhere to go. With traveling not possible while the lockdown is in effect, Indian Test opener Mayank Agarwal on Wednesday surprised his fans as he shared a three-step guide on Twitter.
Agarwal told his fans “how to travel during the lockdown” without stepping out of their house. He also shared a couple of pictures, with both of them featuring almost identical clothes and pose. In the picture, he can be seen sitting in his home garden and the other one shows him sitting on a beach.
Apart from the identical pose, another common thing in both the pictures was him looking at the horizon, just like he mentioned in his three-step guide. His tweet read: “How to travel during the lock down. Step 1: Get an armchair; Step 2: Look into the horizon; Step 3: Let your imagination run wild.”

Last month, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had posted a video on Twitter where Agarwal was showcasing is “awesome” culinary skills. Sharing the video BCCI had tweeted: “Meet Chef Mayank Agarwal. What’s opening batsman @mayankcricket upto at home? Culinary skills put to test, Mayank prepares one awesome dish.”
Agarwal made his Test debut at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) in the Boxing Day Test in December 2018 and had made a mark for himself immediately after scoring 76 and 42 in his first two innings. After that, he has never looked back and since then has gone on to become one of the key members of the Test team.
Mayank followed up his impressive start into his first full season as an international cricketer by scoring runs quite consistently. Once set, Agarwal is famous for scoring big hundreds and it was evident last year when he ended up scoring two double centuries — one each against South Africa and Bangladesh.
