These rare extended period of quarantine time for cricketers is being used by them quite smartly. Much like corporates are finding unique ways to work from home, cricketers are finding these unique ways to interact with each other and more importantly remain in touch with their fans. Many have started their own YouTube channels and R Ashwin is one such player who’s channel is called ‘Reminisce with Ash’.
He had a series of guests on his show and the point was to discuss one match which had a huge impact on their career. Of course, the whole show wasn’t restricted to talking about one match. So for instance, when Shikhar Dhawan came to the show, he spoke about his 187 on debut against Australia in Mohali. He saved the best for the last and had Virat Kohli come to his show for the season finale.
The match they were talking about was against Pakistan in 2012 where Kohli scores a breathtaking 183 and humbled the Pakistanis singe-handedly. However, the most interesting part of the show came when the duo spoke about their interest in extra-terrestrial beings. “I don’t know… I am quite intrigued by extra-terrestrial life, that’s true I won’t deny that. I believe in energy a lot. I believe anything is possible. Sometimes on the field even you would have experienced this,” said Kohli.
“So you understand there’s something bigger going on here and all you have to do is just focus on playing the game the right way and having the right intent. Yeah… I would love to see a UFO someday. That’s one of my aims in life,” he revealed.
