Like the other people in India, former Indian Test captain and Head Coach Anil Kumble is also sitting at home in the complete lockdown period of the country to fight against COVID-19 or coronavirus. While Kumble has come with a message to the Indians, he also revealed his plan in this period.
In the wake of the novel coronavirus outbreak, while almost the entire world has been stopped down to control the situation, the Indian government has also taken the same action. From 25th March 2020, the country is now going through the lockdown for 21 days.
Due to the coronavirus outbreak, most of the events, including sports events, have already been postponed in India. Now, in the lockdown period, everyone is staying inside the house, and getting out of the house only for the essential purposes.
While the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has requested to the citizens to stay home during the lockdown period, Kumble has also requested to every citizen to follow a complete lockdown process to fight against coronavirus strongly.
