Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday hailed the efforts of former India cricketers Mohammad Kaif and Yuvraj Singh after they urged people to observe "Janata curfew" to fight the coronavirus outbreak. "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," PM Modi tweeted.

PM Modi on Thursday had urged citizens to follow "Janata curfew" on March 22 in the view of a novel coronavirus outbreak.

The partnership PM Modi referred to in his tweet was from the Natwest final (2002) where India was given a target of 326 to win the match. India was struggling at 146/5 when both Yuvraj and Kaif got together at the crease.

The duo put on a partnership of 121 runs to give India a glimmer of hope in the match. Yuvraj was dismissed for 69 runs, but Kaif batted well the tailenders to give India a win in the final over by two wickets and with three balls to spare.

The total number of COVID-19 cases in India has now climbed up to 223, including 32 foreigners, the Union Health Ministry said on Friday.
