With Coronavirus showing no signs of disappearing from our lives anytime soon there is another “syndrome” that is afflicting people worldwide, especially the cricketers.

Now again, you must be thinking what has Pushpa got to do with our popular cricketers? Just scroll down to figure out the connection between the two unlikely allies.

Crux Of the Matter: 

All these videos featuring cricketers prove yet again that if there is one thing apart from the game that connects people across the globe then it is nothing but movies. None of the cricketers has got even remotest of the association with Andhra Pradesh, Telangana or the Telugu language. However, they were all having a blast faking Telugu dialogues or dancing to an alien song. This clearly indicates that these players might be divided culturally or linguistically, but are united by one glue, “Pushpa: The Rise”, albeit momentarily.
