Well, Yuvraj certainly wants normalcy to return as soon as possible and he’s contributing in every possible way to help the people of his country. The two-time World Cup winner also said that cricket action should only resume after the fight with the pandemic is over.

"My personal opinion is that first we need to defend our countries, the world from coronavirus. It needs to be completely eradicated or come down 90-95 percent because if it keeps on increasing the players will be afraid to come out to the path, go to the field, go to the dressing rooms or changing rooms," Yuvraj said at 'The Doosra' podcast on BBC.
