His wife Shailaja, 52, breathed her last at 6 am.

Even though Paralkar also tested positive for coronavirus, he was found asymptomatic and placed at the municipal quarantine centre in Shivaji Park.

Paralkar works a sub-engineer with the rainwater harvesting department of the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai. Back in 1999 he was in the probables list of the Mumbai Ranji team.

"I spoke to him today morning. He played for MIG CC for two decades, and achieved a lot of success for us. He played in one tournament for us last season," MIG cricket secretary Amit Dani said.

The world is going through an unprecedented crisis at the moment, with over 6 million cases worldwide. The death toll has reached 369K. While USA seems to be the worst affected, in India there are over 185000 reported cases.

While Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday asked Indians to exercise extra caution as the economy opens up, in his address to the nation through the monthly "Mann ki Baat" radio programme.

"A large part of economy has opened up and it is time to be more careful," Modi said, a day after the central government came up with a phased plan for reopening the country while locking down containment zones till June 30.

In his 30-minute address, the PM said staying at home as much as possible, while maintaining six-feet distance and wearing masks while going out is all the more important now even as he credited a ‘people-driven response’ for the ‘slower spread’ of the virus in the country compared to other nations.
