The coronavirus outbreak has created a situation of crisis across the globe and most of the countries are going through lockdowns. There is absolutely no certainty when the situation will get better. With that, all sorts of sporting events have been cancelled throughout the world. With no sporting action in the picture, many cricketers are resorting to Twitter and Instagram to provide their fans with some entertainment.
With the indefinite postponement of IPL 2020, many franchises are interviewing their stars on Twitter and Instagram so that they can entertain their fans. Recently, Chennai Super Kings were also involved in a live Instagram session with Ambati Rayudu where the right-handed batsman flaunted his lighter side. He answered a varied range of questions during his live session with the franchise.
