Virat Kohli, the Indian captain, is an epitome of consistency – a trait with which he has bossed many cricketing nations. Playing a total of 86 Tests, 248 ODIs and 82 T20Is, the 31-year old cricketer bagged batting impressive averages of 53.62, 59.33 and 50.80. For this reason, the batting icon is regarded as a modern-day legend.
Recently, it was the turn of Pakistani paceman Mohammad Amir to applaud the heroics of Kohli. The left-arm quick, who dismissed Kohli in the final of ICC Champions Trophy 2017 tournament, believes that the right-hander has no match in this era. Amir revealed this during an Instagram session as the testing times have limited everyone to their residencies.
It wasn’t the first instance of Amir lionizing the skills of Virat Kohli. The batting star of India has also shared words of encouragement for Amir in the past, highlighting mutual respect they carry for each other. During the same session, the 28-year old cricketer revealed that the elegant batsman Saeed Anwar is his favorite batsman ever to play for Pakistan.
