With no international or domestic cricket going on due to the COVID-19 pandemic, cricketers are keeping themselves busy with social media activities.
On Friday (May 29), India batsman Suresh Raina had a long interaction with his IPL franchise Chennai Super Kings (CSK) on Instagram Live.
During the candid conversation, Raina said he would choose Ravindra Jadeja and Dwayne Bravo as his Indian and overseas quarantine partners among his CSK teammates.
"I would love to take Ravindra Jadeja. I love his company, he is fun," the southpaw said. "I would just love to spend the lockdown in his farmhouse, ride his horse, maybe ask him to teach me how to ride the horse. We can have the best food ever there.
"I love what he is doing in his international career, he puts in a lot of hard work. Hope he performs more for the country."
When asked which overseas player he would like as a quarantine partner, Raina took the name of Bravo because of the Caribbean all-rounder’s enthusiastic nature.
"I think I would take DJ Bravo. In the lockdown you really need to dance in the house and I think he will do whatever he wants to do to make you happy. He will make you dance to different songs, even make new songs, so I would love to be with him too among overseas players," said Raina.
Under normal circumstances, Suresh Raina would have turned up for CSK in the 13th edition of Indian Premier League but the Coronavirus outbreak forced the BCCI to suspend the cash-rich event indefinitely.
Recently, the BCCI hinted at holding the IPL 2020 in October-November window if the T20 World Cup, which is slated to be held in Australia during those months, did not go ahead due to the deadly epidemic.
