The Coronavirus outbreak has brought all sporting activities to a standstill and so cricketers have no choice but to use social media to stay connected with their fans during lockdown.

Mohammed Shami Chooses Between Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma

Several cricketers including Rohit Sharma, Shreyas Iyer and Shikar Dhawan have conducted Instagram live sessions to entertain their fans.

Recently, India's two key bowlers - Yuzvendra Chahal and Mohammed Shami also resorted to Instagram live for a candid chat.

Interestingly, during the live session, a fan asked Shami who among skipper Virat Kohli and his limited-overs deputy Rohit Sharma is more close to him and without any hesitation, Shami picked Kohli.

The speedster however clarified that he chose Kohli not because the Delhi-born batsman is the skipper of the Indian side.

“I don’t interact much with Rohit on calls. Don’t know, but Rohit and I hardly even bond on jokes etc. Though we have debuted in Test together…With Virat, we both talk on all sorts of things (music taste or regarding any joke). We even interact quite often over the phone. Hence, I will go towards Virat in this case. It is not because he is the captain, but we bond in a much better way,” revealed Shami.
