India is currently facing nationwide lockdown till June 1st and the Government has announced a few relaxation amid lockdown 4.0.

Thakur trained at a local ground at Boisar in Maharashtra’s Palghar district along with some domestic players.

“Yes, we practised today. It was good and definitely pleasing to practice after two months,” Thakur told PTI.
