India cricketer Cheteshwar Pujara was supposed to be in Gloustershire for the County Championship, instead, he is helping his wife clean the house, dishes and urged others to do the same during the tough times.

“It is a tough time because there is no domestic help right now. I help her with cleaning the house. Cooking – I am not good at, but I help out washing the dishes. People should help their partner, whether it is cleaning, cooking, whatever you can. In Indian culture the men are usually not used to doing [house] work,” he said in an interview with ESPN Cricinfo.

A competitive Pujara also revealed he plays a lot of badminton these days with his wife Puja and admits he hates losing.

“I can’t allow my wife to win. I can’t allow anyone to win against me [at badminton]. That is not possible. I’ve been telling her that she has to get better at it and win that way,” he said.

Admitting that we do not have much time for family and friends nowadays, the Test specialist also revealed he is doing meditation nowadays and urged citizens to do a prayer every day.

“Sometimes we don’t have enough time for our family, for our friends. Personally, I knew this part already because I have meditated on this. Not actual meditation, but I do a prayer every day,” he added.
