Much like any other sport, all the cricketing events around the world have come to a standstill due to the coronavirus pandemic. In India, resuming cricket might be a tougher task as compared to the rest of the countries since some parts of the country are under strict lockdown as they fall under the red zone category.
On Wednesday, a PTI report said that Rohit Sharma and Ajinkya Rahane will have to wait to start individual training in the city due to its status of being a COVID-19 red zone, which rules out the opening of sports facilities here for the time being. Describing the same, a senior MCA official while talking to PTI said, “We will strictly adhere to the norms of the state government with regard to the opening of stadiums and sports facilities.”
Currently, India is going through a nationwide lockdown. Meanwhile, the number of coronavirus positive patients in India went past 112000 with almost 3440 people losing their lives on Thursday, as per the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR).
Almost the entire is in a lockdown due to the scare of the ever-escalating situation concerning the World Health Organisation-recognized pandemic that is the Coronavirus. Everything- schools, colleges, airports, railway stations, gyms, sporting events, movies, offices- have been put under lockdown as the world continues to self-isolate in order to control the pandemic.
