Amid Coronavirus, almost every sporting event has met the fate of suspension. And due to it, sports personalities are looking for different ways to keep themselves busy in the self-isolation period. They seem to have quite a free time, so many players are trying to head towards social media to engage with their fans and followers.


India cricketer Shreyas Iyer also falls in the abovementioned category as he recently took to Twitter to engage in a question and answer session with his fans.

“Haven’t done a Q&A on Twitter before, and what better time than now,” Iyer wrote on Twitter.



During the session, Iyer answered many questions. He was also quizzed to describe current India captain Virat Kohli and former India skipper MS Dhoni.

When Iyer was asked to share his views on the talismanic keeper-batsman, the Mumbai batsman had only words of praises for Dhoni.

Iyer described MSD as: “Cool, calm, consistent, and a true leader.”



The 25-year-old batsman was also asked to describe the current Team India skipper Kohli in one word.

“One word about Virat Kohli,” the fan wrote.

Iyer responded to the question and said, ‘Relentless.’



Iyer has so far played 18 ODIs and 22 T20I games, in which the right-handed batsman has scored 748 and 417 runs, respectively. He has 10 half-centuries and 1 hundred to his name in international cricket.

Iyer was also the leading run-scorer in the recently concluded ODI series against New Zealand. He accumulated 217 runs in 3 innings at an average of 72.33 and a strike rate of 95.59.

Shreyas was also impressive in the T20I series, where he clubbed 153 runs in 5 innings at an average of 51 and a strike rate of 131.90.
