India is under lockdown till May 3 due to Coronavirus threats. And, it has given cricketers an ample amount of time to interact on social media with their fans. Some players are busy spreading awareness about COVID-19 while few are busy conducting live sessions with their teammates. Recently, Murali Vijay, the Indian cricketer was also hosted by his IPL franchise in which he discussed a lot of topics. He also revealed that he would like to go on dinner with Aussie women cricketer Ellyse Perry.
Murali Vijay was once a regular opener for Team India in the longer format. But a sudden dip in his form with the bat turned out to be the main reason behind his ouster. However, in IPL, he still holds a contract with the Chennai Super Kings and was set to play for three-time IPL champions in the 13th edition of the league that got postponed due to COVID-19 pandemic.
