In the lockdown, everyone is at home. So is Indian cricket team skipper Virat Kohli. Sharing that he is “in quarantine”, he asked his fans to ask him questions on Instagram. What followed was the cricketer talking about his diet, the meaning of his daughter’s name, ways to deal with anxiety, etc.

When asked about his routine during quarantine, he replied, “Train once a day, spend time with family. Pretty normal.”

When someone asked if he would share a glimpse of his daughter Vamika, Virat reiterated what he and Anushka Sharma had informed earlier: “Vamika is another name for goddess Durga. No we have, as a couple, decided not to expose our child to social media before she has an understanding of what social media is and make her own choice.”
