South African cricketers have launched a no-hands challenge on Twitter to keep themselves fit and fans entertained, but more importantly delivering an important message during the lockdowns caused by the novel coronavirus pandemic.
The challenge is pretty self-explanatory. You have to film yourself doing something, preferably catching something, without using hands. Then you nominate others to do the same.
The idea is to raise awareness that to beat the deadly Covid-19 virus, people need to use their hands as little as possible.
From our limited research, it appears former South Africa captain Graeme Smith, now the acting Director Cricket with the country's cricket board, was the mastermind.
Smith created the wave by catching a tennis ball between his knees.
