Amid the Coronavirus Pandemic, the whole world has come to a standstill including the major sporting events & cricket tournaments being canceled or called off. Former & Current cricketers are keeping themselves busy and entertained by engaging with their fans on social media. Recently Indian Opening batsman Rohit Sharma and fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah together out of fun trolled their teammate Yuzvendra Chahal on Instagram.
Rohit Sharma and Bumrah play for team Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premiere League (IPL) while Chahal is a part of Royal Challengers Bangalore Franchise. Sharma & Bumrah who are part of the Mumbai Indians team together took a dig in a comic way on Chahal’s batting skills who is a part of Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) tam.
Rohit Sharma joined Bumrah for an Instagram live chat session and the due had a talk on various topics including making fun of Chahal. Jasprit Bumrah started the fun making process of Chahal by saying, “If we face off RCB in an IPL match then I want to bowl against Chahal. I have told him I need to bat above him in the batting order and if he hits a six then I will go below him, Bumrah said”.
Rohit joined the fun making process & said, “Even I strongly feel that you (Bumrah) should save an over of game & bowl against him (Chahal). Since he hit a straight six in England stadium he ha become a bit overconfident. We should definitely tell him that he hasn’t hit a six in the International cricket yet while you have hit a mind-blowing six against the No. 1 bowler in the world i.e Australia’s Pat Cummins”.
Chahal couldn’t defend himself and finally asked the duo in the comments section that if Mumbai Indians have a place vacant for a leg spinner in the squad.
Rohit was not in the mood of stoping and he said, “If the Mumbai Indians were losing we would have missed chahal, but we are winning so why should we miss him? It’s ideal for Chahal to sit in Bangalore as that’s the ideal situation for him”.
In the normal situation, these three Indian cricketers would have been playing for their respective franchises in the IPL 2020, however, due to the Coronavirus Pandemic the commencing date of IPL 2020 was postponed till 15th April from March 29th in order to stop the spread of COVID-19.
