ICC Salutes 2007 World Cup Star Joginder Sharma For Serving The Country As A Cop In His Second Innings

Joginder Sharma, who will forever be remembered for the outstanding last over he bowled during the 2007 T20 World Cup against Pakistan, is once again out there serving the nation but this team, in an entirely different uniform.

The 36-year-old has come forward to carry out his duty as a police officer to ensure the 21-day-lockdown to curb the spread of coronavirus in the country is a success.

Joginder, who is currently posted in Hisar, was lauded by the ICC for his exceptional service for the county and its people.

“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,” the ICC wrote on Twitter sharing the two images of the hero we need.

Sharma, post his retirement from cricket was offered a job in the police based on his sporting accomplishment. As per a report by India Today, he while talking to PTI talked about the challenges one has to face as an officer.

“I have been a DSP since 2007. This is one of a kind challenge for me as a police officer because of the general fear and I can tell you that I have seen quite a few challenges in my years of service,” Joginder Sharma had said earlier.

“Our duty time starts around 6am and we do patrolling, making people aware, send those who are out for fun to their homes, help those in need of essentials or medical aid and take action against those who try to defy without any good reason,” Sharma added.
