Recently former India cricketer Yuvraj Singh came up with a brilliant version of the challenge. He also invited Brian Lara, Shikhar Dhawan, Chris Gayle and Sachin Tendulkar to take up the challenge.
The Bottle Cap Challenge reportedly originated on June 25, courtesy of Taekwondo instructor and fighter Farabi Davletchin. But it went viral after mixed martial-artist Max Holloway tried it out followed by several other celebrities. Since then, it has been trending on social media platforms with people from all spheres taking up the challenge and bringing innovations to it.
Recently, Yuvraj Singh introduced a new version of the bottle cap challenge. He opened the cap of the bottle, hitting it with a ball while playing a shot. Many few expected this version of the challenge, and instantly it went viral on social media. The all-rounder also challenged his fellow left-handed batsmen Chris Gayle, Brian Lara, and Shikhar Dhawan. But the special invitation was for batting legend Sachin Tendulkar who Yuvraj urged to take the challenge while batting left-handed.
“Here’s my version of the
