The cricketing activities all across the world have come to a standstill in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. Several bilateral series, as well as the much-awaited IPL 2020, were either postponed or called off. Cricketers are quarantined currently due to the lockdown in the country which has given them free time galore.
They are using this time to interact with fans on social media. One such cricketer who has been quite active on social media is Indian opener Rohit Sharma. The right-hander has been involved in quite a few Instagram live sessions with cricketers.
On Thursday, Rohit Sharma took to Twitter and wrote about how the coronavirus crisis has changed human lives. He also reminded people to look at the silver lining as Earth has got an opportunity to heal itself.
This 🦠 has come like a storm in all of our lives and disrupted what we call normal. If we wanted to look at things in a positive way, Mother Earth is finding her way to heal. Times like these make you grasp for the silver linings and that’s what we must cling to 🐳🐠🦏🐅🌳🌊🦩🐬— Rohit Sharma (@ImRo45) May 14, 2020
