Across the globe, renowned health organizations are recommending social distancing to combat the deadly coronavirus. In the recent video, India captain Virat Kohli seems to follow the same when a fan asked him to take a selfie. However, the latest video has gone viral on social media.
Kohli was at the airport when the incident happened. However, the location of the video is still not confirmed either the Indian captain had landed to Lucknow for the second ODI against South Africa or he was departing from Dharamshala after the first ODI was washed out because of rain.
Before heading to play the second ODI, BCCI announced that the matches in Lucknow and Kolkata will be played behind the close doors which were later postponed.
However, both the teams had reached Lucknow before the board called off the series.

Earlier this week, the South Africa team left India from Kolkata to their homes.
It has been almost two weeks since Team India has played a match. Nobody would have ever imagined that there would be a day when there would be no cricket.
However, the pandemic has forced to stop the game for a long time.
Presently, there is no game until 15th April when IPL would start. The Indian Board has also postponed the IPL which was earlier scheduled to start from 29th March. Amid coronavirus scare, there are higher chances that the popular league might get cancelled.
The dangerous virus has not halted only cricket but all the sporting events around the world. The football and baseball leagues have been cancelled. As of now, India has confirmed 195 cases and four deaths have been reported because of coronavirus.
