With no cricketing action going on at the moment due to the coronavirus outbreak, cricketers around the world are trying out different activities to keep themselves busy. From Yuzvendra Chahal and David Warner making TikTok videos to the likes of Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Suresh Raina, AB de Villiers, Ravichandran Ashwin and others doing live sessions on Instagram, cricketers have been making the most of the social media platforms during the lull period.

And on Sunday, India batting ace KL Rahul decided to interact with his fans. The right-handed batsman took to Twitter to conduct a question and answer session for his followers. As expected, the fans bombarded him with a barrage of questions and Rahul answered most of them.

When he was asked which is the toughest bowler to keep, Rahul chose Indian speedster Jasprit Bumrah’s name. “Absolutely enjoying wicketkeeping. The toughest bowler to keep to is @Jaspritbumrah93,” Rahul said during the Q/A session.

KL Rahul reveals his favourite IPL moment

The Karnataka-lad started keeping wickets for India from the limited-overs home series against Australia and later went on to don the gloves during the New Zealand tour. So far, Rahul has played 36 Tests, 32 ODIS and 42 T20Is; he is now India’s first-choice wicketkeeper in the white-ball formats.

During the interaction with his fans, Rahul also spilt the beans over his favourite IPL moment. According to KL, the 2016 IPL with the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) was a “career-defining season” for him.

“It’s got to be the 2016 season with RCB which was a career-defining season for me as people saw the potential in me in white-ball cricket,” tweeted Rahul.

If not for the pandemic, KL would have been leading Kings XI Punjab in the Indian Premier League (IPL). The thirteenth season of the IPL was scheduled to start on March 29, but the BCCI has suspended the cash-rich T20 tournament indefinitely in the light of the pandemic.
