Indian batsman Suresh Raina was spotted playing cricket inside his home amidst the coronavirus outbreak.
As there is no treatment or vaccine available for the virus, lockdown is the only solution to stop the further transmission of this deadly virus. Therefore, the central government has imposed a lockdown of 21 days in the country.
The 13th edition of the Indian Premier League has also been suspended till April 15. The league was scheduled to start on March 29. However, it seems unlikely that IPL 2020 will begin any time soon. Therefore, BCCI has been considering the option of conducting the IPL later this year.
There is no game of sports happening anywhere in the world right now. As a result, sportsmen are spending their time through different methods. While some cricketers like Brad Hogg, Krunal Pandya, and Shreyas Iyer are interacting with their fans on twitter, Kevin Pietersen is interacting with cricketers through Instagram live.
In this self quartination period, Suresh Raina is spending his time playing cricket with children in his house lobby. Also, the cricketer recently became a father for the second time. His wife Priyanka gave birth to a baby boy on March 22, 2020.
On April 6, the Chennai Super kings uploaded an adorable video of their team member Suresh Raina. In the video, the World Cup winner can be seen bowling and batting against a boy. Also, Raina’s daughter, Gracia has donned the umpire’s hat.
CSK shared the video on their twitter handle with the caption, “Pure tit-for-tat gully cricket scenes in the @ImRaina household!”
The left-handed batsman recently made headlines by donating a handsome amount of Rs. 52 lakhs to fight against novel coronavirus. The virus has now affected more than 4400 people in India while nearly 110 have lost their lives.
Suresh Raina donated Rs 31 lakhs to Prime Minister’s Citizen Assistance and Relief in Emergency Situation Fund (PM-CARES Fund ). Further, he donated Rs 21 lakh to UP CM’s Disaster Relief Fund.
The cricketer shared this information on his official twitter account.
His post read, “It’s time we all do our bit to help defeat #COVID19. I’m pledging ₹52 lakh for the fight against #Corona (₹31 lakh to the PM-CARES Fund & ₹21 lakh to the UP CM’s Disaster Relief Fund). Please do your bit too. Jai Hind!#StayHomeIndia @narendramodi @PMOIndia @myogiadityanath “
