Wicketkeeper Pant had asked if he could join the conversation in the comment section. When both Pietersen and Kohli did not seem to have taken notice of it, Chahal commented, "Hi Rishab how are u bro our unique comment ignored by 2 legends so we both talk to each other (sic.)"

The banter continued after that with Pant saying, "Virat sir hie toh bol (sic.)" Chahal then replied, "Pant le bhai hi hi and hi." Pant continued to seek Kohli and Pietersen's attention though, asking them to take his name. Chahal then commented on the glass that Pietersen was holding, "Oh bhai beer glass mein water Kp sir you are a legend (sic.)"

Cricketers have been making do with interacting with fans and with each other on social media with almost all professional matches coming to a halt due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The pandemic has claimed nearly 50,000 lives worldwide. It has led to the sporting calendar in general largely coming to a standstill.

In cricket, South Africa's tour to India, New Zealand's tour of Australia, England's tour of Sri Lanka and the final leg of Bangladesh's tour of Pakistan have all been postponed. While a deadline of April 15 was set for the Indian Premier League to start, the lockdown in India due to the pandemic has put it under a cloud of uncertainty.
