With the Indian Premier League (IPL) getting over and for some time yet to go for the ICC World Cup, cricketers are having some free time. India captain Virat Kohli and wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant decided to use the time to do some commercial. The duo was promoting a men’s product and a cricket writer tweeted a video of the two and sought a 12-month ban on the two cricketers, perhaps jokingly or he may have found the advertisement sexist.
England bowler Stuart Broad found it appealing though. The pacer replied to the tweet saying two of his mates in the English side – Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler – would fit the roles of Kohli and Pant perfectly. The two cricketers are known for their ‘buddy bonding’.
Broad then advised the brand to contact Phoenix Management Group Limited – a leading cricket management company that has looked after a number of big names of England cricket, including Stokes, Buttler and Broad himself beside Joe Root and former captains like Michael Vaughan and Paul Collingwood.

The cricket writer then posted another tweet in reply to Broad that showed a picture of the latter along with James Anderson and Alastair Cook posing with a black bat with no clothing on their bodies. The fans also reacted to the Kohli and Pant video with some finding it funny while not so funny. A couple even said that people could do anything for money.
Buttler has been in good form
England is currently playing in a five-match ODI series against Pakistan at home and has taken an unassailable 2-0 lead after the first game was washed out. Both the games saw the two sides posting big scores. Buttler scored 110 not out in the second game that England won by 12 runs and finished as the Man of the Match.
Stokes, however, hasn’t been too successful in the two games played so far even though he remains a crucial member for the English squad in the upcoming World Cup. After having played for Rajasthan Royals in the Indian Premier League alongside Buttler, Stokes went wicketless in both the games and scored one 37.
