The deadly coronavirus pandemic has impacted the entire world and brought it to a standstill. The COVID-19 has also halted several sports events including the extremely popular Indian Premier League (IPL).


Currently, India is having a 21-day lockdown period, and all sports personalities are spending time at their homes. In the past few days, many cricketers have engaged in several activities to keep themselves busy. They are interacting with fans on Twitter and Instagram, sharing the latest updates and happenings of their life.

India’s young bowler, Deepak Chahar who also plays for Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the IPL got involved in a fun chat on the inaugural episode of Anbu Den Lions released by the franchise itself and hosted by Rupha Ramani.


In the video, Chahar revealed that former India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni is no longer good at popular game PubG. The seamer said that MSD has lost his touch ever since he switched to another famous game ‘Call of Duty’.

“Mahi bhai (MS Dhoni) doesn’t play as much, but I still play. Mahi bhai is playing a different game now,” said Chahar

“Yeah, sometime back he got back to playing PubG but had lost touch. He couldn’t figure out who was shooting from where. He clearly was looking out of touch,” added the 27-year-old.


CSK’s official Twitter handle released the video and captioned it: “In the inaugural episode of #AnbuDenLions, namma #Cherry got talking about playing PUBG with #Thala Dhoni and why guys love to learn the guitar! #WhistlePodu @deepak_chahar9 @RuphaRamani”

The speedster came into the limelight when he performed brilliantly for CSK under Dhoni. Following which, Chahar made his international debut in a T20 match against England in 2018.

In November last year, the Agra-born registered the best-ever bowling figure in a T20I game, picking up six wickets, for just seven runs against Bangladesh.
