In the absence of cricketing actions amid lockdown period, cricketers have resorted to interactions on social media to entertain themselves as well as fans.
In the past few weeks, the likes of Kevin Pietersen, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, AB de Villiers, Hardik Pandya, and many others have been active on social media, conversing about cricket and life in general.
Catching up with the recent trend was Sunrisers Hyderabad’s retained duo David Warner and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who engaged themselves in an interesting conversation.
Warner brought up a hypothetical situation where India plays Australia in the T20 World Cup finals, where Warner faces Bhuvi in the final ball of the match, with a boundary needed off the last ball.
The Australian asked Bhuvi about his go-to ball for the final delivery of the match. Also, Warner having operated with Bhuvneshwar closely, he guessed about the latter bowling his trademark knuckleball delivery.
To which Bhuvi savagely replied by claiming that he did not need to worry about it as he would scalp the prized wicket of Warner in the very first over.
Here’s the conversation:

Later on, Bhuvi concurred that he would plan to bowl a knuckle delivery looking at the gigantic dimensions of the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).
Bhuvi and Warner brought laurels back home in Hyderabad after winning the 2016 season of the IPL. The two have been an integral part of the Sunrisers setup since its inception in franchise cricket, taking over from Deccan Chargers.
Warner announced his comeback to competitive cricket after serving ban period, during the 2019 season of the IPL where he amassed the most number of runs in the tournament.
The two were slated to take part in the thirteenth season of IPL which has now been postponed indefinitely.
