Due to the outbreak of coronavirus, the world has been compelled to come to a standstill. Majority of sporting events– from the Tokyo Olympics to the Indian Premier League have either been called off or postponed in the wake of the pandemic. More than 7 lakh confirmed cases have been reported in the world along with around 37000 deaths.

Amid such a stern situation due to the debacle, many cricketers have donated their bit to aid in the battle against the pandemic. Sam Billings shaved off his hair for a noble cause and urged people to donate too. David Warner also joined the bandwagon and shaved off his hair and further nominated many cricketers including Virat Kohli and Steve Smith to participate in the challenge.

At a time when the whole world is battling against Coronavirus, everyone is trying to help out. However, Yuvraj Singh’s appeal to donate to Shahid Afridi‘s foundation didn’t go down well with Indian fans, who blasted him for his tweet. Due to Afridi’s past remarks on India, fans were furious with Yuvraj’s tweet in which he urged everyone to donate their bit to Afridi’s foundation.

Meanwhile, Hardik Pandya, who has been sidelined due to back injury from the Indian team, shared a video where he can be seen working out during his quarantine period. The all-rounder was set to make a comeback into the Indian team in the ODI series against South Africa. However, his comeback was halted as the series was called off in the wake of coronavirus outbreak.

Former India all-rounder Irfan Pathan also urged fans not spread hatred in the name of religion in these trying times. Few people are using this time as an opportunity to spread religious hatred and Pathan warned everyone on Twitter regarding the same.
