3-time IPL winners, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) have sent a special message to their fan base amid the COVID-19 outbreak. The social media admins of the franchise have urged their fans to stay at their homes besides asking them to join the entire nation in expressing their gratitude towards the doctors for their incredible job in this emergency situation.
For the uninitiated, India’s Prime Minister, Narendra Modi has asked all the residents of India to stay inside their homes on Sunday and observe the curfew. He has announced a ‘Janta Curfew’ where all the citizens should not come out of their respective houses. Most importantly, he has asked the citizens to express their thankfulness to the doctors and nurses and those serving in the need of the hour who have put their lives on the line to save the nation from this crisis.
While this message has been received by numerous people in the nation, the CSK have fulfilled their duty by informing their fans about the same. They shared a post on Twitter which featured their skipper MS Dhoni walking back along with team’s sports medicine doctor, Madhu Thottappillil.
Quite in their typical CSK style, the Super Kings have asked the lions to stay in their own dens. They have further motivated the people to make life hard for Coronavirus besides, stating that they should try whistling at 5 PM tomorrow without using the hands.
“Home is where the heart is. Stay in your Den this weekend. Ventures and adventures can wait. Take care of yourself and the old folks at home. Tough times don’t last. Tough people do. Let’s make life hard for the virus. And let’s whistle to express our gratitude to the relentless fighters of the virus. PS. Try doing it without using the hands. Tomorrow 5 PM,” CSK’s tweet read.
