Former India opening batsman Wasim Jaffer, former Australia spinner Brad Hogg, New Zealand fast bowler Mitchell McClenaghan, India limited-overs vice-captain Rohit Sharma and spinner Yuzvendra Chahal and India Women’s captain Harmanpreet Kaur are among the many cricketers who have expressed their opinion across facets of the game in one way or the other.
Most recently, England pacers in Mark Wood and Liam Plunkett nailed the “Sexy Kitten Challenge” to entertain their fans.
Australia opening batsman David Warner has become the latest cricketer to post something on the internet. Upon been nominated, Warner decided to shave his head and post a video of the same across his social media handles.
The southpaw did the same to show support for the workers who are risking their lives in the wake of treating coronavirus patients.
“Been nominated to shave my head in support of those working on the frontline #Covid-19 here is a time lapse. I think my debut was the last time I recall I’ve done this. Like it or not??” read Warner’s caption.
