Virat Kohli has plenty of admirers outside India too.
Kohli often gets praised by neighbouring countries players and fans, Pakistan is no exception to it. Many Pakistan bowlers have showed their appreciation for Virat Kohli even when he has scored huge amount of runs against them. Kohli has a great record against Pakistan in ICC tournaments and most of the time, it is Kohli who snatches victory from Pak’s mouth.
Who can forget Kohli’s memorable and iconic knock against Pakistan in T20 World Cup 2022 on 23rd October. When India needed 48 runs off 18 balls, Kohli hit two exquisite sixes on last two balls of 19th over off Haris Rauf and sealed victory for India scoring 82 runs.
Recently in an interview, pacer Haris Rauf lauded Virat Kohli for the two sixes he whacked against him.”If Dinesh Karthik or Hardik Pandya would’ve hit those Sixes, I would’ve been hurting but those came off Virat Kohli’s bat and he is a different class altogether,” said Rauf.
