Due to the outbreak of coronavirus, sporting events across the world have been cancelled or postponed. With all cricket matches being called off, players are staying at their homes and spending time with their families during this time of emergency.

He also had his complete gear including jersey, pads, bat and helmet. The video was uploaded by Louise Butler, the wife of the wicketkeeper-batsman.
