India off-spinner R Ashwin started training in Chennai after the government allowed relaxation in the fourth stage of lockdown. While the city has seen a rise in a number of COVID-19 cases, it's now on people to take necessary measures for their own safety.

In the video Ashwin posted, he is bowling in the nets. The bowler knows he needs to start taking the baby steps from now to be in the right shape when the cricket resumes. "One step at a time!!! Baby steps," Ashwin captioned his post.
