At a time when the entire country is going through an unprecedented crisis, several Indian celebrities have come forward to contribute to several funds of the government. Indian captain Virat Kohli, who is one of the biggest names in world cricket, made his contribution on Monday along with wife Anushka Sharma.

“Anushka and I are pledging our support towards PM-CARES Fund & the Chief Minister’s Relief Fund (Maharashtra). Our hearts are breaking looking at the suffering of so many & we hope our contribution, in some way, helps to ease the pain of our fellow citizens. #IndiaFightsCorona,” Kohli posted on social media.

Lately, Kohli has been pretty active on social media where he has been constantly appealing his fans to stay at home during the time of crisis.

As several sections of the society continued to disobey the ongoing lockdown, Kohli had earlier posted a video where he urged the citizen to follow the guidelines issued by the government.

Virat Kohli’s appeal to fans

Taking to Twitter, Kohli said: “Hello, I am Virat Kohli. Today I am speaking to you not as an India player, but as a citizen of the country. What I have seen in the last few days people moving in groups, not abiding by curfew rules, not following lockdown guidelines it shows that we are taking the fight very lightly. But this fight is not as easy as it looks or feels.

“I wish to request everyone to please maintain social distancing and follow it. Also, we should follow the directives given by the government and just for once think how you would feel if due to your negligence someone in your family gets affected by the virus. Please follow the experts as they are working very hard. It will only be successful when we follow our duties rather than going out in groups and breaking rules. This for me is an act against the country’s well-being. So now, I along with all of you wish to see things improve and please follow the directives of the government. Jai Hind!”

As a result of the lockdown being observed in the majority of countries across the globe, the world of sports has taken a severe hit with all events either canceled or postponed. All eyes are now on the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) – which was postponed to April 15 from March 29. But given the current scenario, it’s highly unlikely that tournament will be played. 2020 Olympics, which was scheduled to be played in Tokyo this year, has already been postponed to 2021.
