New Delhi, May 15 (IANS) India cricketer Ravindra Jadeja on Friday said that there's still a long way to go in fight against the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and that's why the citizens should all do their part by staying at home.

"I am staying home to fight against COVID-19, are you?" Jadeja said in the video posted on his Instagram account in which he can be seen wearing the blue Indian jersey and doing his famous sword celebrations with his bat.
