As the IPL 2020’s fate stays in a hanging position, the franchise members and players are sitting at home. During this break, some cricketers are enjoying their time at home while some of them are spending time on social media. However, the IPL Franchisees are making sure that the fans get something to savour during this time. Recently Rajasthan Royals and Sunrisers Hyderabad engaged in a Twitter battle.
On Friday, Sunrisers Hyderabad uploaded a video on their official handle. In the video, it can be seen Rashid Khan, who is playing indoor cricket is trying to imitate a particular batsman’s style. If you analyse the video properly, you will see that it is something which Steve Smith, the captain of Rajasthan Royals, was doing during the Ashes last year.
Sunrisers Hyderabad shared Rashid Khan’s clip on Twitter
The caption of the video, “Who wants to join @rashidkhan_19 for a game of indoor cricket? Imitations only! #OrangeArmy #SRH #StayAtHome #StaySafe.”
After seeing the video, the Rajasthan Royals thought about replying to this. The franchise uploaded a GIF on their response in which can Smith can be seen batting. The GIF comprised of the snippets from last year’s Ashes when Steve Smith was seen batting in a funny manner.
In fact, it was the same manner in which Rashid was seen batting in the video uploaded by Sunrisers Hyderabad. In the caption of the post, it mentioned clearly stating that they are not the only ones who are missing Steve Smith out of action. “So we’re not the only ones missing @stevesmith49?”, the tweet read.
