With the COVID-19 pandemic putting a pause many major cricket events around the World, many prominent players are not being able to showcase their prowess in the field. In the meantime, several sporting icons have become more active on social media than usual and are frequently sharing their daily-life activities with the fans. Recently, the cornerstone of India's Test batting line-up, Cheteshwar Pujara took to his official Instagram account and expressed his displeasure of being away from the game. However, India's swashbuckling opener Shikhar Dhawan trolled his teammate by posting a hilarious comment.

Regarded as the modern-day wall, Pujara boasts of a sensational Test record and his tendency to stay at the crease for a long time clearly depicts his love for batting. Thus, being away from the sport is certainly not easy for him and one can see that in his Instagram post. “The thing I miss the most in this lockdown is being on the cricket field,” wrote the seventh-ranked Test batsman while sharing a picture of him practicing in the nets.
