The coronavirus threat has brought the world to a standstill. All sporting events have been cancelled across the globe. During this time, sportspersons are staying back at home as the entire world is going through a lockdown. Currently, due to the lockdown, the Indian Premier League has also been suspended. There is no certainty when will the IPL 2020 played.

The IPL franchises, however, are trying to keep their fans engaged by interactive sessions between star players. Sunrisers Hyderabad decided to do something similar. Captain David Warner invited his opening batting partner, Jonny Bairstow to have an Instagram live session from the official handle of Sunrisers Hyderabad. During the interaction, the two star players talked in length about cricketing matters while Warner decided to a sly dig at Virat Kohli.

I hope Virat is watching: David Warner makes a cheeky comment

Upon being asked what is the difference between SRH and other IPL teams, David Warner said that his side has an IPL trophy while Bangalore doesn’t. He then said that he hopes Virat Kohli is watching this and then laughed about it. “Bangalore don’t have an IPL Trophy. I hope Virat (Kohli) is watching,” said Warner.

Warner and Kohli shared a good camaraderie away from the field. The two have often been seen commenting on each other’s profile. Interestingly, Warner’s SRH and Kohli’s RCB met in the final in 2016 IPL. Sunrisers narrowly won that match and lifted the cup.

Upon being asked what no one knows about Warner, the Australian revealed that he jokingly said that he is planning to have a career in Bollywood after retiring from cricket. “I think after cricket I am looking out for a Bollywood career. Not sure it is going to work out, but I don’t mind giving it a try. But certainly, not as a dancer, that’s for sure,” the southpaw added.

Bairstow and Warner shared some brilliant opening partnerships in the last season of the IPL. Warner has been with the franchise since 2014 while Bairstow joined last season itself. Warner ended as the leading run-getter and the orange cap winner with 692 runs. On the other hand, Bairstow scored 445 runs in 10 matches before leaving the tournament early for international duty.
