Former India all-rounder Joginder Sharma, who became a household name in India after he bowled the memorable final over during 2007 T20 World Cup final against arch-rivals Pakistan is now doing his bit for the society as the whole world battles with the COVID-19 pandemic. Since retiring from professional cricket, Sharma started serving as the Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) in the Haryana Police force.

In these tough challenging times, the 36-year-old is working extensively to help the citizens of the country deal with the global crisis which has claimed the lives of more than 30,000 people around the world. Sharma recently went viral on social media once again after he was seen carrying out his duties as a cop wearing a mask amid the coronavirus crisis.

As images of him went viral on social media, the world body of cricket – International Cricket Council (ICC) lauded Sharma by tweeting his image on his official Twiter handle.

ICC shared two pictures of the former India cricketer and captioned: “2007: #T20WorldCup hero. 2020: Real-world hero. In his post-cricket career as a policeman, India’s Joginder Sharma is among those doing their bit amid a global health crisis.”

In one photo, Sharma can be seen celebrating with his teammates while in the other he can be seen wearing police uniform and mask.

The Rohtak-born cricketer’s pyrotechnics on the cricket field helped India win the inaugural edition of the World T20.

Sharma gained fame after he bowled the final over of T20 WC title clash and dismissed set Pakistan batsman Misbah-ul-Haq to title the match in India’s favour.

The COVID-19 pandemic has so far claimed over 30000 lives across the world while infecting more than 6.5 lakh people.
