Sports fans are missing their sports heroes, while sports stars are using their social media to fill in those gaps for fans and also to raise awareness of what to do and what not to do about the Covid-19 virus.
Former India starter Virender Sehwag visited Instagram on Wednesday and interacted with his fans in a live video and took the opportunity to request that they not leave their homes.
Virender Sehwag said he continues to hear of cases in which police personnel are forced to carry cargo while people still leave their homes for no valid reason.
"My friends keep telling me on the phone that people keep going off the roads unnecessarily. I don't understand what the need is to do those things. For the first time it has happened that both the public and private sectors have asked to stay. Home and work or not Work. You are receiving your wages, you can spend time with your family, enjoy that time and not leave your houses. Coronavirus has the ego of not entering their houses. It is only a matter of 15 to 20 days. "
One of the most feared cricket starters, Sehwag, at the request of a fan, also revealed the amount of disinfectants he has in his homes.
"I've kept disinfectants in all my rooms, including the guard and service rooms. Everyone who comes into the house has to disinfect first. I've kept at least 12 disinfectants in my rooms and I've also kept many on the stem for backup I'm washing my hands three times every 2-3 hours, so why can't you? If you wash your hands often, the new coronavirus can't even touch you. "
Who is the only player from India to reach 2 triples in tests in his quarantine time?
Virender Sehwag said he is playing indoor and outdoor games with his children and singing with his wife Aarti. The 41-year-old said he plays cricket with his children in the garden, helps them in their practice sessions, plays indoor games like ludo, starfruit, snake, and ladder and his children also ask him to play PS4 games. Sehwag also spends time watching online series & # 39; and Netflix series & # 39; About drug mafias like Pablo Escobar and El Chapo are his favorites.
Virender Sehwag on his culinary skills.
The former Delhi hitter said the Indian cricket team loved his art of "making tea." He said that all at once were addicted to & # 39; Veeru style & # 39 ;. Sehwag said he would use a lot of milk in the process. The Najafgarh-born admitted that other than omelets, eggs, and paneer bhurji, he can't do much in the kitchen. "My wife is a very good cook but my mother is the best cook in the house," he said.
Sehwag's jokes with his children in this quarantine period
Many admit that Virender Sehwag changed the face of cricket Test in India. The world had seen Adam Gilchrist come and crash from the first ball in Test cricket and India also wanted someone who could take the game away from the oppositions in a single session. Sehwag did exactly what the doctor ordered him after Sourav Ganguly promoted him, but his sons tell him that he is a "flat track stalker." That's when Sehwag shows off his enthusiastic past innings and tells them that his father might even score in Nottingham's changing conditions.
"They can't beat me on the field in any sport and that's why lately they are inviting me to a PS4 game, they want to beat me there and tease me later."
Sehwag jumping to the past too
The former hitter, who was recently seen in the World Road Safety Series, recounted an incident when his entire family of about 40 people was awaiting the results of their meeting. He said, "They expected me to fail, but I disappointed everyone and passed my exams."
"I used to play marbles in the past and during this time of quarantine I took them out of a bag. I am teaching my children some techniques related to the game."
Who would be Sehwag's favorite quarantine partners?
Virender Sehwag played cricket for 14 years of his life and then also took on some coaching and commentary roles. He admitted that this was the longest time he's been out of the game. When asked who he would quarantine if he had the chance, Sehwag named former cricketers Zaheer Khan and Ajay Jadeja.
