COVID-19 pandemic has been affecting people all over the world and it also witnessed the cancellation of almost all the sports events as well. Sportspersons are spending time at home which included Harbhajan Singh who has been spending time by tracking updates on the pandemic virus. He also stays at home with his family (wife Geeta and daughter Hinaya) in Mumbai while the pandemic has claimed more than 20,000 lives.
“You see life from a completely different perspective in these times of crisis. Sport is farthest from your mind at this point in time. Now that I am home, I am spending most of my time reading anything and everything about COVID-19,” Harbhajan Singh told PTI on Wednesday.
“I try to read every authentic piece of information available. All updates provided by the government about the current situation. And yes, most importantly, I try to read and find out what kind of breakthrough scientists, biologists and doctors are making. You need to keep your spirits up and be self motivated in these trying times. Any positive information lifts your spirits,” he further said.

Harbhajan Singh was in Chennai at the pre-season camp of Chennai Super Kings when the Indian Premier League got postponed. While this is a forced break from his busy schedule, which also includes commentary, he is getting to spend some precious time with his wife and daughter.
“Me and my wife do yoga together in the morning. We are now taking time out to play scrabble and darts in the evening. At times, we watch a movie together,” he said.
“The break has given me an opportunity to spend quality time with Hinaya. It’s really joyful when I get to play with her. It lifts my spirit. Right now all I want is everybody to be safe,” Harbhajan Singh concluded.
