India cricketer R Ashwin, who has changed his Twitter profile name to aware people on Coronavirus, came up with a hilarious tweet. The tweet was to make sure the citizens stay inside the house in this 21-day lockdown in the country.

Ashwin took to Twitter and posted the picture of mankading Jos Buttler during the last Indian Premier League (IPL).

“…Exactly been 1 year since this run out happened. As the nation goes into lockdown, this is a good reminder to my citizens. Don’t wander out. Stay inside, stay safe,” Ashwin tweeted on Wednesday.

Ashwin's mankading had sparked controversy last year and the English cricketers were upset with his action. He had received a lot of flak, but there was a large number of fans and cricket pundits who stood with him too.

Currently, the off-spinner is with Delhi Capitals franchise, after he was traded by Kings XI Punjab before IPL 2020 auction.
