The entire country is currently facing a lockdown due to the spread of Coronavirus pandemic, which has affected millions across the globe. Cricketers, film stars and various other public figures are following the self-isolation process and staying inside their homes.


However, there are still some who are stepping out of their houses without any necessary work. Despite authorities’ warning, such people do not understand the seriousness of the COVID-19. To stop them from doing so, Mumbai Police, which is known for using creativity to aware citizens, came up with a unique warning.

Mumbai Police cited the example of MS Dhoni’s 2011 World Cup-winning six to advise people on staying indoors.


Recently, on the 9th anniversary of India’s second-ever World Cup triumph, the Mumbai Police posted two pictures (in one collage) of Dhoni hitting the title-winning six on Twitter, with two different messages.

The first picture mentioned the date 2 April 2011 with the message: “We sat at home till India successfully chased its target”. While the second picture stated the date 2 April 2020 with the note: “We’re sitting at home, waiting for India to chase our target out”.

The objective of the tweet is to advise the citizens of the country to stay inside their homes as much as possible in order to stop the further spread of the deadly disease. The tweet captioned both the images: “India, let’s finish it off in style!”



As per the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, the total number of coronavirus cases in India on Friday climbed to 2,301, including 156 cured and discharged along with 56 deaths. At present, there are 2,089 COVID-19 active cases in the country.
