The Indian skipper, Virat Kohli has been quite active on social media during the ongoing forced break from the game due to the coronavirus pandemic.

He had scored 593 runs in that series with the help of a couple of centuries and three fifties.
While describing the picture, the India skipper expressed his love for the longest format of the game. Captioning the pictures on Instagram, Kohli wrote: “Nothing comes close to playing an intense game in whites. What a blessing to be able to play test cricket for India”.
As soon as Kohli shared the pictures, fans flooded the comments box with heart-warming messages for the Indian skipper. “King Kohli,” a user posted a comment with a heart emoji. “Miss you on the field champ,” another one joined in. “King of playing game in whites,” a fan added.
On Tuesday, Kohli shared a throwback picture, fondly recalling the time before the coronavirus pandemic.
Captioning the picture of him and his actress wife Anushka Sharma, Virat wrote: “Throwback to when you could go to such beautiful spots in nature. Just to be able to sit together and just soak it all in. With my one and only”.

Almost the entire is in a lockdown due to the scare of the ever-escalating situation concerning the World Health Organisation-recognized pandemic that is the Coronavirus. Everything- schools, colleges, airports, railway stations, gyms, sporting events, movies, offices- have been put under lockdown as the world continues to self-isolate in order to control the pandemic.
