In a video posted by Windies Cricket, Lara explained the correct technique of handwashing. "The Prince @BrianLarahas a message for you on dealing with COVID-19! #WIStandTogether #MenInMaroon," Windies Cricket took to Twitter to share the video. "Before your touch, your face always wash your hands. Make sure that you get that soap in all areas of your hand," said Brian Lara in the elaborate video on Twitter.

"It will not only benefit you but everyone around you. Let us fight COVID 19 together," he added. On March 14, the Cricket West Indies (CWI) suspended all its tournaments and face to face group meetings from March 16 for a minimum of 30 days as a precautionary measure against coronavirus pandemic.
