‘Jason Roy has lost it’ – This is what the caption read as England’s famous Barmy Army posted a hilarious clip of the opening batsman while being at home. Cricketers across the world are isolating at their homes as the world fight against the deadly coronavirus pandemic.
All the major international and domestic fixtures are off as cricket boards around the globe have come forward to prioritise safety over the game. Earlier this month, the BCCI called off the three-match ODI series against South Africa after initially deciding to hold the last two games behind closed doors.
The BCCI have also suspended the IPL till April 15 and reports suggest that there is a big chance, the tournament might get cancelled altogether this year. The likes of South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, West Indies, England, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and other cricket countries have also called off their international and domestic fixtures.
With no action going on, cricketers are keeping themselves occupied with different activities. In the last few days, videos of James Anderson benchpressing his daughters, Kane Williamson training his dogs, Anushka Sharma cutting Virat Kohli’s hairs have come out.
But nothing looked as hilarious as the one featuring Jason Roy. Barmy Army’s official Twitter handle posted the hilarious clip in which the England star could be seen doing his quirky dance moves.
Here is the tweet:
