With live cricket and other sporting events taking a back seat due to the rapid spread of coronavirus, sportspersons, and cricketers, in particular, have taken to social media to engage with the fans and keep themselves busy. Among those sportspersons, Shikhar Dhawan has been uploading some funny videos on his Instagram to entertain the fans amid the nationwide lockdown. But on Saturday, Dhawan came up with a new idea and put up a motivational video for young and budding cricketers urging them to not lose hope but keep practising even when in self-isolation and quarantine. Practising regularly will help you avoid a muscle strain and also help your mind keep the shot memory and be ready when you return to the cricket field.

“I hope you make good utilization of this time,” said Dhawan in his post. In the motivational video, Dhawan shadow-practises a few of his shots like the straight-drive, cut as well the pull shot and urged young cricketers to keep practising.

“Don't let the lockdown get you down. I want to remind all the young aspiring cricketers to stay home, stay safe and stay in touch with the game! Dhawan captioned his post. “It is important to shadow practice so that the body movement is regularised,” Dhawan said in the video. “Whatever shot you like playing, practice it regularly.”
