Former Indian Cricketers Yuvraj Singh and Mohammed Kaif urged fans on social media not to panic and follow the directives given by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Reacting to this, PM Modi referred to the duo’s iconic partnership in the 2002 Natwest Series Final, in a bid to ‘fight against Coronavirus‘.

“Here are 2 excellent cricketers whose partnership we will remember forever. Now, as they have said, it is time for another partnership. This time, all of India will be partners in the fight against Coronavirus. #IndiaFightsCorona,” PM Modi wrote on Twitter.

In the 2002 Natwest Series final, India were asked to chase down a target of 326 to win beat England and clinch the series.

However, India were struggling at 146/5 before Yuvraj and Kaif joined in the middle. The pair stitched 121 for the fourth wicket before Yuvraj’s vigil was dismissed for 69.

However, Kaif continued his onslaught and took India beyond the finishing line. The victory is still regarded as one of the greatest moments in Indian cricketing history.

In India, more than 270 people have been affected by the virus, which has also claimed more than 10,000 lives globally.
