Manpreet is currently training with the rest of the Indian squad at the Sports Authority of India Centre in Bengaluru.

International Men's Day is an annual event celebrated on November 19. It is an occasion to celebrate achievements and contributions of men to the nation, society, community, family, marriage, and childcare.
Earlier in the day, former India batsman Suresh Raina highlighted how the COVID-19 pandemic has brought about changes in lifestyle and responsibilities for men.
"For many men, the pandemic has altered the entire lifestyle and responsibilities. Never before have so many men spent so much time deep in the family trenches. With the pandemic came more time at home for everyone. And with that, came more time with their families specially children, getting involved in activities like making lunches, managing schedules, negotiating television and video game time, tending to tantrums and sibling spats," Raina said.
