During their talk, Shaheen expressed his hope that Indian ace batsman Virat Kohli will return his form.
In preparation for the India vs. Pakistan Asia Cup 2022 match, players from both teams have been interacting with one another during practice sessions at the ICC Cricket Academy. On Thursday, players Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant, Yuzvendra Chahal, and KL Rahul spoke with the injured Shaheen Afridi. During their talk, Shaheen expressed his hope that Indian ace batsman Virat Kohli will return his form.
Since scoring his most recent century in a day-night Test against Bangladesh in 2019, Kohli has not passed the three-figure mark. The right-handed batter failed to score even fifty runs against England in the multi-format series this year.
Speaking first, Kohli addressed the Pakistani pacer before turning to Shaheen. We are praying that your form comes back, Shaheen was heard saying, and then “Aapke lie dua kar rahe hai aap wapis form me aaye.”
