South African cricketers launch no-hands challenge to raise Covid-19 awareness

Web Desk

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.

Fast bowler Bueran Hendricks displayed his football tekkers first before catching it on his back.

Rassie van der Dussen caught what seemed like a bottle of spice between his elbow but did cheat a little when placing it back on the table.

Temba Bavuma gobbled up an almond without the use of hands.
