Joginder Sharma gets praise for his stand against coronavirus
Haryana : Joginder Sharma, famed for delivering the magical last ball during the World Cup T20 in 2007, is getting praise for his action on a different pitch.
After cricket, he continued to serve the country as a Deputy Superintendent of Police in Haryana and he is leaving no stone unturned to keep people safe from coronavirus pandemic.
The ICC took to Twitter to appreciate the hard work of the former India all-rounder. "2007: #T20WorldCup hero 2020: Real world hero. In his post-cricket career as a policeman, India's Joginder Sharma is among those doing their bit amid a global health crisis," the ICC tweeted on Saturday.
India went into a 21-day "total lockdown" at midnight on Tuesday, with anyone ignoring the order facing up to two years in jail and a fine.
This year's Indian Premier League is one of the many sporting events worldwide to be postponed including the Tokyo Olympics, which has been delayed until next year.
