With the entire world has come into a standstill because of this novel coronavirus pandemic, every sports event has either cancelled or postponed for the time being. Sportspersons are staying at home, maintaining social distance, spending their time with families and Indian ace batter Smriti Mandhana is no different.
Working out, washing utensils, watching movies and playing Ludo online – these are some of the few activities which she has been doing during the lockdown period. Recently in a one-minute 38-second video shared by the BCCI, where Mandhana has revealed her daily activities in order to make herself busy amid this crunch situation.
However, she has been working out according to the training schedule given by Team India trainer. “Staying fit is very important, so I am working out. I keep in touch with the trainer and receive the feedback. He keeps sending us (all Indian players) all the workouts that we need to follow,” she shared.
“The other thing I like is spending time with my family. We love playing cards. I help my mother with cooking. I guess washing utensils has become a part of my daily routine. However, my favourite pass time is to trouble my brother,” said the ace left-hander Smriti Mandhana.

She again added, “The third thing which is love is watching movies. I am a big movie buff. So, I make sure I watch two-three movies a week, not many because I don’t want to get addicted. I want to spend time with my family.”
Not only these, but Smriti Mandhana also loves to sleep in her free time and she is doing so now as well. “The best thing which I love doing the most at home is sleeping. I make sure I sleep for at least 10 hours to keep myself happy the entire day,” she expressed.
The star Indian batter also urged people to stay at home during the lockdown to fight against the novel coronavirus. India has been under a 21-day lockdown since March 25, a step was taken due to stop the spread of coronavirus in the country which has taken several lives in the country so far. But the current situation in mind, the lockdown has extended in many states in the country as well.
“Stay home, stay safe and keep yourself physically and mentally fit,” concluded Smriti Mandhana.
