Coronavirus pandemic has forced everyone to stay at home as the countries across the globe are enforcing partial or total lockdown to prevent its spread.
With no cricket going on, the cricketers have also found a way to keep themselves busy. Pakistan’s Test captain, Azhar Ali, has started the new push-up sit through challenge. Here’s how it started;

The 35-year-old has challenged his national teammates including Babar Azam, Shan Masood, Asad Shafiq, Wahab Riaz, and Sarfaraz Ahmed. He has also challenged his Somerset teammates Tom Abell, Peter Trego, and Tom Banton to post videos of themselves doing the challenge.
Grant Elliot and Fakhr e Alam have also been nominated to do at least 5 push-ups.

Azhar’s video had a very important message for us all as well. It is to keep ourselves sanitized to reduce the chances of contracting coronavirus.
