As the world fights against coronavirus, cricket stars are using social media as a medium to interact, entertain and keep the fans engaged during such testing times.
With too many trends coming up, Yuvraj Singh started a new challenge, ‘Keep It Up’ on social media, where one needs to bounce the ball on the side of the bat. He nominated Rohit Sharma, Sachin Tendulkar and Harbhajan Singh to take the challenge.
Since then, the Indian players are coming up with their own twists to the challenge. While Harbhajan Singh followed the ‘Keep It Up’ challenge, Tendulkar completed the challenge with a blindfold on and asked Yuvraj to try and match him.
Coming to Rohit Sharma, the hitman took up the challenge and brought his own twist to it, by bouncing the ball on his bat’s handle. Sharma further nominated teammates Shreyas Iyer, Ajinkya Rahane along with Rishabh Pant. See:

Not only Rohit but Indian cricketing legend and former coach Anil Kumble also completed the challenge. The spinner brought a twist to the ‘Keep It Up’ challenge by using his wrist to ace the challenge as he couldn’t find a bat. Kumble asked Virender Sehwag, VVS Laxman and KL Rahul to put their best foot forward for this challenge.
