As the Coronavirus pandemic has restricted major sporting events across the globe, many sportspersons are on a leisure away from the field, and Sunil Chhetri himself wanted to get some interaction with his huge fanbase onsocial media with a Q&A session.

He tweeted today morning: “Alright then guys, take a little break from your WFH routines and let’s make the most of this social distancing with a Q&A session. Keep the questions fun and I’ll try answering as many as I can. Fire away!”

Under the hashtag ‘#AskChetri’, Chhetri attended the questions of several fans, asking him queries on various topics. Amongst all the inquiring tweets, a Twitter user @anarlm_nichani came up with an interesting question.

The fan asked Cheetri which IPL club he would opt for if he was a cricketer. He asked: If you get a chance to play cricket in which IPL franchise would you like to play??? #AskChetri @chetrisunil11″

Other than loving the city, Chhetri has a heartwarming bonding with RCB and Team India captain Virat Kohli, and was also seen attending the IPL franchise’s training ground last year.

Chhetri led Bengaluru FC to the semis of the 2019-20 ISL season, but faced defeat against ATK in a 3-2 aggregrate.
