Earlier, the Indian captain made a humble appeal to Indian citizens to follow the fresh guidelines issued by PM Modi.

Addressing the nation, PM Modi announced that the country will face complete lockdown for the next 21 days.

Welcoming the move, Indian skipper Kohli requested the fellow countrymen to “stay at home” as “social distancing is the only cure” available with us which can stop Covid-19 from spreading.

“As our Honourable Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi ji just announced, the whole country is going into a lockdown starting midnight today for the next 21 days.

My request will remain the same, PLEASE STAY AT HOME. #SocialDistancing is the only cure for Covid 19″, Virat Kohli tweeted.

The coronavirus pandemic has brought the world sports to a grinding halt.

India’s three-match One-day International home series against South Africa called off.

Moreover, the 2020 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) had postponed until April 15 due to the deadly virus.
