The cricket lovers are quite disappointed after the announcement of Indian Premier League 2020 getting postponed indefinitely due to the coronavirus outbreak. Earlier IPL 2020 was slated to start from March 29 but then it was postponed till April 15 and now it has further been postponed indefinitely as the Indian government extended the lockdown till May 3. Recently, the President of Board of Control for Cricket of India (BCCI), Sourav Ganguly made it clear that no cricket event is going to take place in the near future in India.
The IPL franchises are conducting live Instagram sessions of their players in order to entertain their fans since everybody is locked inside the house because it is the best way to remain safe from coronavirus. Lately, the skipper of IPL team Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), David Warner and opener Jonny Bairstow carried out a live chat on the official handle of SRH. The duo talked about many things and David Warner also took a jibe at the Indian skipper Virat Kohli and his IPL team Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB).
When David Warner was asked about the difference between his team SRH and other IPL teams, he said that his team had won an IPL trophy while Bangalore did not won any. He then laughed a little and said that he hoped Virat Kohli was also watching it.
David Warner and Virat Kohli are on pretty good terms and they mostly make comments on each other’s social media handles but now it will be interesting to know how the RCB skipper will react to David Warner’s mocking comment. Co-incidentally in 2016 when SRH won the IPL trophy, it defeated RCB in the finals. RCB has always been termed as one of the strongest team of the tournament but it has never won any season since its inauguration.
When David Warner was asked whether there is something which nobody knows about him, he said in a funny manner that he is going to try his luck in Bollywood but certainly not as a dancer.
While David Warner has been playing for SRH since 2014, Jonny Bairstow started playing for the IPL team from the last season only.
