Watch: Jadeja shares Khawaja’s run-out clip to raise lockdown awareness
India’s prime minister announced 21-day lockdown a few days ago in order to control the spread of the coronavirus and in the wake of it, Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja posted a video of a run-out clip where he dismissed Usman Khawaja to raise the awareness of the lockdown.
Jadeja has been one of the best fielders in the world in the modern era and it was one of those days when he proved it again. Khawaja had cut the ball in the front of the point and taken off for a run, Jadeja, who is one of the best fielders in the world, was quick to the ball and picked it up with one hand and hit the stumps at the non-striker’s end direct, to run out Khawaja.
|Stay safe, stay at home. Runout matt hona @foxcricket @cricketcomau,” Jadeja captioned the video.
Most of the sporting events have been called off or postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic and the International Cricket Council (ICC) announced recently that no events will take place till June.
The Indian Premier League (IPL) which was scheduled to start after April 15 is now likely to be cancelled with the Indian government now announcing a 21-day lockdown in the country. This lockdown will go on till April 15, putting the IPL 2020 at a risk. An official statement from BCCI is still to come regarding the issue.
