The coronavirus pandemic has brought life to a standstill across the world. All the major sports tournaments have been cancelled for quite some time now and it doesn't look like the sporting action will resume anytime soon. The cricketing community is also quarantined, giving cricketers time to indulge themselves on social media to interact with their fans and teammates.
One such cricketer is Rohit Sharma who has been involved in several Instagram live sessions. On Saturday, Rohit Sharma interacted with his India teammate Mohammad Shami in an Instagram live sessions. The duo of Rohit Sharma and Mohammad Shami spoke on several topics from their times on the field to their lives off the field. However, the session was brought to an abrupt end because of network issues.
While speaking to Smriti Mandhana and Jemimah Rodrigues on a YouTube chat show recently, Rohit Sharma revealed that Mohammad Shami is the toughest bowler he has ever faced in the nets. Rohit Sharma added that the pitches in net sessions are usually lush green with a lot of moisture in them. So, Mohammad Shami loves green pitches and whenever he sees a green pitch, he comes into bowl having a lot more biryani, according to Sharma.
Rohit Sharma comically said that he has repeatedly requested Mohammad Shami not to bowl bouncers at him in the nets, but to no avail as he still has to face them since the fast bowler gets all charged up.
Rohit Sharma has had many Instagram live sessions in recent times with many of his India, Mumbai Indians and ex-IPL teammates, showing his camaraderie with them. They have revealed interesting details about cricketers and their lives, something which fans are very keen to know.
