The coronavirus outbreak has halted regular human life on the global level. The pandemic has forced the people to confine into their houses. India is also going through a lockdown of 21 days at the moment. The move has forced all the cricketing tournaments to suspend for the moment. Indian cricketers are now spending their time in quarantine with their families. Many are trying to keep their fans engaged and entertained through social media. Rohit Sharma likes to come on Instagram live for the same. Previously, he had gone live with Kevin Pietersen and Yuzvendra Chahal. On Wednesday, Rohit Sharma came live with fellow cricketer Jasprit Bumrah on Instagram.
During the Instagram session, Jasprit Bumrah informed the Hitman that Rishabh Pant wants to challenge him in the six-hitting competition. He told Sharma that Pant has laid down a challenge ‘Who will hit the longest six.’ Rohit Sharma played down the challenge and trolled Pant instead.
Mere sath usko karna hai? Sa*a ek saal hua nahi usko cricket khelke, chhakke ka competition kar rha hai
‘He wants to compete against me? He has hardly played cricket for a year and wants to have the six-hitting competition’ said Sharma in a hilarious manner.
Rohit Sharma alongside Jasprit Bumrah was supposed to represent Mumbai Indians in the IPL 2020. However, the BCCI decided to postpone the tournament till 15th April till further notice. Rohit hasn’t played competitive cricket since the T20I series against the Blackcaps. He was the part of all 3 teams Test, ODI, and T20I initially but a calf injury mid-way of the tour ended his New Zealand tour prematurely. India missed their star batsman as they were whitewashed in both one-day and tests.
