I just bought a new ipad amidst the lockdown and i just can't get hold of the keyboard for it
Is there any way i can use my old laptop's keyboard and mouse with the ipad (pro 2020)

The 1Keyboard app allows you to use your Mac keyboard to control an iPad or iPhone. It's great app that I have used for years on both devices. It doesn't allow you to use the a mouse or trackpad, though, but for typing it works flawlessly. (Disclaimer: I have no affiliation with the app maker.)
There are wireless Bluetooth keyboards that work fine with an iPad. I purchased one from an online shopping site for $19 for my iPad Pro. I've read that practically any Bluetooth keyboard will work but I would opt for one that explicitly says compatible with an ipad. Mine is an Omoton wireless keyboard and its easy to connect and works great.
