“It’s terrible. In my 46 years of life, I never experienced anything like this. Not just that, the world has never seen anything like this. And I hope nobody sees this situation again. The entire world is thinking of how many people may die in the next two weeks! It’s unbelievable,” Ganguly added.
Amid the self-isolation, the 46-year-old revealed how he is keeping himself occupied.
“Locked down like everyone else, I am at home with family. These are rare moments in the sense that others normally stay at home. I don’t. That has changed. I’m doing some BCCI and ICC work. I rest, watch a bit of TV, do a bit of fitness training at the gym I have at home,” he concluded.
