“The #coronavirus is like a bowling machine. It is controlled and bowling outside the off stump. As long as we aren’t touching the away going deliveries we will be fine and eventually we will save our wicket and save the Test match for our country… #stayhome #lockdown,” Pathan mentioned in his tweet.
