“For the entire word, I would say that be a bit disciplined and stay in your house. Everyone wants to contribute something for their country and this is the time to do it. All we are asking is to stay at your home. I know people will go out to buy out groceries and basic things but be a bit disciplined. Stay clean, maintain your personal hygiene and social distancing, that’s all you need to do,” said Rohit during the Instagram live session with Pietersen.

Pietersen and Rohit had a long session conversing all things related to cricket, life and how they are dealing with the complete lockdown. Even the likes of AB de Villiers and Yuzvendra Chahal were seen commenting during the live session and all four had good banter.
