Due to the coronavirus threat, the entire world has come to a standstill. Most of the countries are going through a lockdown with no international cricket being played at this moment. There is no confirmation when normalcy will resume again. In this situation, cricketers are using this crucial time to stay fit and spend their time with their families.
Another thing which well-known cricketers have been doing these days is engaging with fellow players through the Instagram live sessions. On Friday, Rohit Sharma and Australian batsman David Warner also came together for a chat. The two players talked about cricket and the current situation which the entire world is going through. However, during their interaction, India leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal dropped a hilarious question for Warner.
The two openers were having a discussion regarding documentaries on cricket. Rohit admitted watching the Amazon Prime’s documentary series ‘The Test’. The series focuses the time Australian cricket team went through a complete revamp after Warner and Steve Smith were banned from the team. He praised the way the Tim Paine led side came back from the shambles.

During this discussion, David Warner also told hid Indian counterpart of watching a documentary series, “Cricket Fever: Mumbai Indians”. The series is based on the behind the scenes story of the franchise during the IPL. During this discussion, Chahal dropped a hilarious comment asking the Aussie opener whether he actually watched the entire series on Mumbai Indians. He also cheekily said that Warner has a lot of patience in that case.
“Really you watched the whole documentary on Mumbai Indians (MI)? So much patience you have Warner sir,” Chahal wrote. As usual, his cheeky presence in the comments’ section once again left the fans in splits. During their conversation, Sharma and Warner also discussed opening the batting with their partners in ODIs. The Indian opener recalled the time he was promoted up the order for the first time in 2013.
“In 2013, my second game as an opener in the Champions Trophy. I told Shikhar we are playing against South Africa, I’ve never faced Morne Morkel or Dale Steyn with the new ball so you have to take the strike. He says no, you are more experienced, this is my first tour here and you should take the strike. Here is an opener who did not want to take the strike. And I could not even see the first three balls from Morkel. I did not expect that much pace or bounce,” Rohit said.
