All Indian cricketers have been advised to isolate themselves. Social distancing-as most experiencing it would have noticed-is not the most fun thing to do. Even with the various advancements in technology, there is only so much one can do to keep oneself entertained behind closed doors.

Earlier this week Rahul came up with an encouraging tweet saluting the medical staff of the country. He also urged the readers to be responsible in following the measures put in place by the government. “These are testing times for all and I salute the work being done by our doctors, nurses and medical staff across the country.
