Chahal then commented on the glass that Pietersen was holding, “Oh bhai beer glass mein water Kp sir you are a legend”
This is not the first time, Pant has looked to barge into a chat, he had done it while Mumbai Indians cricketers Rohit Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah were having a candid chat.
Meanwhile, most of the cricketers are stepping forward and donating and staying indoors, also spreading awareness among the citizens about the deadly virus.
