Amid the severe situation of coronavirus pandemic spreading its wrath around the globe, the world is under lockdown where people are spending their time in isolation. Talking about India, amid the 21-day lockdown in the country, the confirmed cases have crossed 4000 and more than 150 deaths have been registered so far across the nation. All the citizens are currently been advised to stay indoors and enjoy their quarantine period.
In the outbreak of the pandemic, health workers and policemen are trying their best to maintain a positive environment in the society. To show appreciate their relentless work, PM Narendra Modi had recently appealed everyone to perform the ‘lights-off’ activity and ignite candles in their respective balconies on April 5.
Many Indian cricketers like Sachin Tendulkar, Virat Kohli, Suresh Raina and Rohit Sharma have come forward and contributed their bit to tackle the pandemic. They have also heaped praise of health workers and policemen who are working relentlessly in such trying times.

The video won many hearts as Twitter was filled with appreciation for the video in no time. Indian international and Mumbai Indians all-rounder Hardik Pandya also showered love on Mumbai Police and appreciated their efforts in the lockdown period.

The prolific all-rounder from Baroda has been sidelined from international cricket for quite a while now due to a back injury.
