Cricket fraternity send prayers for Indians struggling with COVID 19 second wave

India has been badly hit by the second wave of the Covid 19 pandemic which has led to the suspension of IPL 2021. Most of the overseas players, commentators and staff have headed back to their respective countries but their hearts still lie with the people of India as they continue their fight against the deadly virus.

The cricket fraternity have left heart-warming messages for India praying for the country's well-being. Kevin Pietersen, who was part of the IPL commentary panel, was one of the many who took to social media to share his support to India.

The tweet, which was posted in Hindi, meant, “I may have left India but I am still thinking about the people of India who have showered so much love on me. Kindly be safe. This too shall pass but you need to be alert.”

Besides Pietersen, also joining the list who showed solidarity with India in these trying times are the likes of Alan Wilkins, Simon Doull, Tom Moody, Michael Slater and Lisa Sthalekar.

Following are some of their tweets, wishing India a speedy recovery:
