Amid the lockdown, celebs are resorting to social media for staying connected with their fans. All the activities are halted due to the pandemic and the much-awaited IPL 2020 has also been postponed indefinitely. Hence, many IPL franchise are coming up with video interviews with players to provide fans with some entertainment.
Recently, Murali Vijay was also involved in an interview held by Chennai Super Kings, his Indian Premier League franchise. The batsman answered many questions during the interview regarding cricket and isolation life. However, one of his answers shocked his fans the most and raised a lot of eyebrows.
When Vijay was asked to name two cricketers he would like to go for dinner, he picked the first name of his friend and teammate Shikhar Dhawan. However, it was the second name which grabbed a lot of headlines. Vijay picked Australian sportswoman Ellyse Perry as the second name.
“Ellyse Perry. I want to have dinner with her. She is so beautiful. And Shikhar Dhawan any day. He is a fun guy. Just that he will speak Hindi and I will be conversing in Tamil,” Vijay had said.
Vijay choosing Perry’s name caught the attention of many fans as they didn’t expect the batsman to reveal this name.
Recently, in an Instagram Live session with Ridhima Pathak, Perry finally responded to Vijay’s comment. Perry who was unknown about Vijay picking her name, was told about the instance by Ridhima.
To which Perry hilariously replied by saying, “I hope he’s paying. That’s very kind of him. I’m flattered.”
Meanwhile, Perry also revealed that Australia Women might be the first side to step back on the field after the coronavirus subsides. Perry opined that the Australia Women side or Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL) might be in the line to resume the cricketing action in the near future.
“It might be the case that either the Aussie women’s team or Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL) might be the first cricket to start up again. I think there is a lot of scope in that,” she had said.
