Amid the Covid-19 crisis that has led to the suspension of all sporting events globally, athletes have been turning into journalists on various social media platforms and have been interviewing each other in order to entertain their fans and kill time.

India pacer Mohammed Shami and cricketer-turned-commentator Irfan Pathan on Saturday interacted with each in a live Instagram session. The two bowlers also talked about Rohit Sharma and showered high praise on the India opener.

Speaking to Shami, Irfan said, “Sometimes, while I am commentating and watching Rohit Sharma play, I feel he is not a cricketer, but a poet. He bats as smooth as butter, like a poem. The bowlers don’t even realise that he is slamming, and he keeps on slamming.”

Shami also hailed Rohit, who has now also established himself as a Test opener.

“Exactly. I feel he is a package to learn and to show what is cricket. He is a pure batsman. If he is batting, you will get to learn a lot,” Shami added.

“He will hit bowlers, and you get to learn. If you are a batsman, you get to see how much time he has to play a shot. You will also see how to bat in different conditions. He is a next-level batsman. He is the best package.”

Last year, Rohit broke the record for most runs in a single World Cup last year. He is also the only Indian to smash over 400 sixes in international cricket.
