Jofra Archer is ready to go for the nightwatchman duty but...oh wait, it's a bummer, the door is shut and it's a virus-truncated game. He will have to wait until the conditions are suitable for play. One can feel Jofra's eagerness to go out on the field as the pace sensation has taken the world by storm since his impressive start to the international career.
Who can forget his blistering bouncers and heat-seeking deliveries in the channel in the ICC 2019 World Cup and then his heroics in the mouth-watering clashes in the Ashes?
Freya Davies, who has represented Sussex, Western Storm and England, has joined the bandwagon and partook in the round-the-world challenge which basically is something that every cricket fan must have done with a bat and ball. It involves tapping the ball in the air but this specific challenge is a difficult version of that because not only you have to bunt the ball with the face, swell and spine of the bat but you also have to finish off the challenge by landing the ball on your back. Now, this needs a lot of practice, doesn't it?
Sam Curran, who debuted against Pakistan at Headingley in June 2018 at the age of just 19, is a very handy all-rounder and a player who can serve England cricket for many years but the promising cricketer like everybody else is confined to his home.
Sam is taking a walk down memory lane and rolled back the years. He is recalling sweet memories of his childhood when he used to play with a hanging ball and at the end of the video, he shares how he is practising with the sock again just like he did when he was a child.
We’ve moved on a bit since the old ball in the sock! This is a great bit of kit! pic.twitter.com/uGZS3VpIi7— Andy Walker (@adelewalker1979) March 25, 2020
Tom Banton recently represented Peshawar Zalmi in an exhilarating Pakistan Super League season five. He returned to his home in a bizarre sequence of events as the PSL V got called off a few hours before the semifinals owing to the coronavirus scare. Well, he is safe and sound and is chilling at the comfort of his home and can be seen having fun with his dog. He is trying to get his dog catch a ball in the slips but the dog is not interested at all and the regulation chance has been put down, Banton gets a life, thanks to the unamused slip fielder.
James Anderson has shelved retirement plans and much to our delight intends to continue playing Test cricket. If you have any doubts about his fitness then I am sure they would be removed after you watch the video below where he lifts his daughter as part of his weight-lifting workout routine and he shows us his immaculate fitness in no uncertain terms. He is still going strong and we can't wait for him to swing the ball extravagantly once normal service resumes.
