Stay safe: Ravindra Jadeja draws cricket analogy to urge people to stay indoor amid Covid-19 lockdown

Written by Mohan Fonseka

Cricket has come to a standstill due to the rise of novel coronavirus pandemic and cricketers are having a tough time in the self-isolation period.

As India continues its fight against coronavirus, all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja came up with a unique video post on his official Instagram handle in a bid to encourage Indians to stay indoors during the entire 21-day period.

Jadeja posted a video of himself running out Australia batsman Usman Khawaj during India’s tour Down Under in 2019 at the Adelaide Oval. In the second ODI, Khawaja was batting on 21 when he hit a Kuldeep Yadav delivery towards point. Jadeja moved quickly to his left, picked up the ball and threw it towards the non-striker’s end all in one motion.

Jadeja urged his followers to stay indoors and safe during these tough times. Jadeja captioned the post: Stay safe, stay at home. Runout matt hona. @foxcricket @cricketcomau.

Ravindra Jadeja is known for his unmatched athleticism and is considered as one of the best all-rounders in world cricket. Besides being prolific with the bowl, Jadeja is extremely handy with the bat as well. But what sets him apart from other all-rounders is his fielding. Ravindra Jadeja is an exceptional fielder and he has time and again produced moments of magic with his impeccable fielding.
