The coronavirus pandemic has brought everything to a halt. Major sports tournaments have been cancelled which includes the much-anticipated 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2020). Due to the cancellation of on-field activities, cricketers have been extremely active on social media.
The International Cricket Council have also been quite active on social media. They have been asking fans several questions to keep interacting with them. Recently, the ICC asked fans about the the player who pulls off the pull shot perfectly in international cricket. They asked fans on whom amongst Vivian Richards, Virat Kohli, Ricky Ponting and Herschelle Gibbs does so. All these players are masters of the pull shot and to pick one between them was a difficult choice.

Immediately, fans started taking their picks. A notable name who had his pick is India cricketer Harbhajan Singh. Harbhajan Singh surprisingly picked his former captains at the Mumbai Indians franchise, Rohit Sharma and Ricky Ponting as his favourite pullers of the cricket ball. Interestingly, Rohit Sharma wasn't in the choices provided by the ICC but even then Harbhajan Singh took Rohit Sharma's name.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) are set to host a conference call with the IPL 2020 franchises to discuss the prospects of the tournament. A BCCI official told a leading news agency that the board and IPL franchises are set to have a conference call on Tuesday, March 24 to discuss the way ahead and potentially the fate of the IPL 2020.
