With everyone asking the question when is Indian Premier League going to be held, former Team India cricketer and IPL star Suresh Raina has said that Life is more important than a tournament.

Amid global pandemic of Coronavirus, like any other sports events IPL has also been postponed.

PTI quoted Suresh Raina as saying, “The IPL can wait till millions of lives, which are in line due to the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic are saved”.

Apart from stressing on the need to put IPL on hold till lifevgoes back to normal amid Coronavirus fear, Raina has already done his bit in this fight against the deadly virus by donating Rs 52 lakh, one of the highest donations among elite sportsperson.

While spreading awareness on the importance of staying home during the ongoing 21-day lockdown in the country through social media, the 33-year-old is trying to be the perfect homemaker as his wife recovers from the birth of their second child, son Rio, last week.

In the normal circumstances, Raina, who last played for India in 2018, would be playing in the IPL but instead he is enjoying cooking for his family as well as the domestic help in the house.
