Under normal circumstances, he would have led them in the 2020 edition of IPL but with the COVID-19 pandemic bringing the world to a grinding halt, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) skipper Dinesh Karthik had to invite his teammates Andre Russell and Sunil Narine to his new YouTube show for a fun-filled conversation.

During the chat, Russell made fun of Karthik for his long hair and beard.
"DK what's wrong with your barber. Your barber dead?" the Caribbean all-rounder said as Karthik burst into a laugh
"You are not allowed to get like razor blades and stuff?" continued Russell, who took the IPL 2019 by storm with his brutal batting.
Mystery spinner Narine suggested Karthik to keep the new look for this year’s IPL, which remains postponed until further notice.
Karthik joked that Russell is giving him stress and that is the reason for his greying of hair.
"You want to bat higher up the order, you want to bowl with the new ball...next thing you want to captain also! What do I do then!" the KKR captain said.
Karthik also pulled Russell's leg saying the all-rounder wanted to buy a helicopter.
"People want to buy a car and you wanted to buy a helicopter," he added, which left Russell with his hand covering his face, laughing.
The official handle of KKR shared a video of this chit-chat session on Twitter with the caption reading: "Hilarious #ROAST on #TotallyStumpedByDK, feat. Andre Russell and Sunil Narine: We guarantee you've never seen this funny side of @DineshKarthik, @Russell12A & @SunilPNarine74!"
