The skipper, who said he is talking to the nation as a fellow citizen and pointed out that the country can be successful in its fight against Covid-19 only if people co-operate.

“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 is 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,” Virat Kohli said in a video.

“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 effected by the virus”. He said.

“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!”, he concluded.
