The coronavirus outbreak has made the whole world sit inside their houses as it is the best way to break the chain of the virus transmission. Some of us have the option of working from home but there are many who just can’t work from home, even if they want to, such as professional cricketers. The cricket players all around the globe are spending this time with their family, interacting with fans, spreading awareness about coronavirus, playing with their kids and pets, etc.
Recently the skipper of the New Zealand cricket team, Kane Williamson posted a video on his Instagram account in which he is seen with his dog Sandy. In the video, Williamson edged the ball with his bat and Sandy took a wonderful catch just like a brilliant slip-fielder.
