In order to keep the fans entertained and engaged during this tough time, they came up with an isolation game. Based on their birth month, the fans have got to find their cricketer matchup with whom they can spend time with.

With Gibbs’ highest score being 228, he will get to spend ample time with Kohli in the gym.
