The Indian cricketers are making the most of free time that they are getting because of the 21-days lockdown which has been imposed by the government as a measure to combat the lethal coronavirus. They are also interacting with their fans and also using their social media networks for spreading awareness about the coronavirus pandemic which has already taken lives of more than 50,000 while the number of infected cases are more than 10,00,000 worldwide. If we talk about India, the number of infected cases is more than 2,000 while over 50 have lost their lives.
Recently, Indian cricketers Rohit Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah had a live Instagram session and they talked about many things including Indian Premier League as they both play for the same IPL team – Mumbai Indians (MI). The MI social media team was also following the live chat of Rohit and Bumrah and they got something for which they asked the opinion of cricket fans.
While talking with Rohit, Bumrah talked about his wish of bowling to Indian cricketer Yuzvendra Chahal who plays for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in IPL. Bumrah also asked the MI skipper to give his opinion on this matter and Rohit Sharma said that he should keep an over for Chahal as after hitting a straight drive in England, he is showing signs of over-confidence. Jasprit Bumrah compared his batting with Chahal and said that he has scored a six on the bowling of one of the best bowlers of the world, i.e., Pat Cummins but Chahal has not even scored a six in his entire international career.
After the live session, the official Twitter handle of MI posted a tweet, asking fans to share their opinion on Bumrah bowling to Chahal.
MI tweeted , “Are you pumped-up to see Bumrah bowl to Chahal?. Predict what the over will be like #OneFamily #CricketMeriJaan @yuzi_chahal @Jaspritbumrah93.”
Are you pumped-up to see Bumrah bowl to Chahal? 👊😋

Yuzvendra Chahal who is pretty active on social media didn’t take much time in responding. In his answer, Yuzi talked about the strong batting line-up of RCB and asked MI to keep on dreaming as he will come at 10 or 11 while before him, they have to get ABD, Virat Kohli and Aaron Finch out.
Chahal tweeted, “Keep dreaming I am batting no. 10 or 11 before me Finch ABD sir and King Kohli is there first get them out then we will talk about my batting #staysafe”.

Well, what do you think about that over in which Chahal will be batting while Jasprit will be bowling?
