The COVID-19 pandemic has forced all sporting events to come to a standstill. While the cricketers are using the time off the field to interact with fans on social media, the official accounts of cricket boards across the world are also going creative with their online activites.
Earlier this week, Cricket Australia simulated an ODI match against New Zealand on a popular cricket PC game and posted the match online. Australia's ODI series against New Zealand was the last international action in the sport before COVID-19 forced a halt on cricketing action.
On Thursday, BCCI, too, posted a series of witty tweets as they issued a guide for fans on how to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic.
They used cricket references to make their point.
Here are the tweets:
