India Test batsman Cheteshwar Pujara has decided to get a haircut from his wife Puja as they continue to follow the lockdown rules amid the growing coronavirus crisis in India.
The fourth phase of the lockdown started on Monday with several relaxations which included the opening of salons and spas after two months across the country.
The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) issued fresh guidelines for lockdown 4.0 and have allowed salons to operate once again. But people will be sceptical before visiting such places which pose a threat of spreading the virus among people, salons being one such place.
Pujara therefore, chose to remain indoors and get a haircut from his wife Puja.
“Trusting your batting partner for a quick single when on 99* or trusting the wife for your haircut – what takes more courage!” Pujara posted on Instagram.
Pujara is not the only Indian cricketer to get a haircut from his wife. Earlier last month even India captain Virat Kohli was seen getting a haircut from his wife, Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma.
The MHA has also allowed the use of sports stadiums which comes as a good news for all Indian athletes but without any spectators.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has taken note of the new rules and are mulling holding a training camp for its contracted players.
The board is also mulling a skill-based training camp for its contracted players but any further call on that will be taken only after they get full clarity on the new lockdown rules.
“Taking into the account the restrictions on air travel and movement of people till May 31, the BCCI will wait further before organizing a skill-based training camp for its contracted players. The Board reiterates that the safety and well-being of its athletes and support staff is paramount and will not rush into any decision that can hamper or jeopardize India’s efforts in containing the spread of the virus,” BCCI said in a statement.
