The coronavirus shutdown has changed many aspects of life for people across the world. While a lot of it has been painful, there are a few instancesย of positivity as well.

For cricketers, it means spending more time with their family at home, which has become a luxury for Indian players especially.

And staying at home for extended periods means some of them have had to help with household chores as well, given the restrictions imposed on movement of people.

A few Indian cricketers seemed more than happy to help things running smoothly in their homes. While fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah showed his mopping skills, batsman Ajinkya Rahane has become a bit of a cooking aficionado while Cheteshwar Pujara is helping out with the cleaning.

So, every cloud does have a silver lining.
