The World is under the Corona Virus Threat and with each day the Virus is spreading like a wild fire across everything- from societies to cities and then in countries. Almost every single country has taken precautionary measures to stop entering the virus in their territory. Yet the virus has managed to infect a no of countries across the world.
Recently, England captain Joe Root also recently announced that in the upcoming tour of to Sri Lanka, the English team will avoid shaking hands in a bid to avoid the coronavirus threat.
Root also insisted that instead of shaking hands, the players will great each other with fist bumps – a gesture in which we greet (someone) by lightly tapping their clenched fist with one’s own.
Root said, “We are not shaking hands with each other, using instead the well-established fist bump, and we are washing hands regularly and wiping down surfaces using the anti-bacterial wipes and gels we’ve been given in our immunity packs.”
This sensible gesture from Joe Root might have received accolades from the world over. But, his team-mate Stuart Broad realised an opportunity to troll his captain.

The England’s speedster, in a video of 2 seconds on twitter, filmed a news story of his captain giving instructions to the England Team during their flight to the Island. After filming the story, Stuart Broad moved the camera towards Root, who was sitting behind him and offered Root a handshake. However, Root didn’t look impressed by Stuart Broad making the fun of the instruction.
England’s tour to Sri Lanka commence on March 07. The visitors will play two practice games before the two-match Tests series. The series will also be crucial as it will give the visitors a chance to strength their position in the ICC World Test Championship (WTC) point table.
