The Indian skipper, Virat Kohli is known for his positive attitude on and off the field, following this he doesn’t even shy away from making good relations with the Pakistani star cricketers. It will be pertinent to mention here that currently, the ties between Pakistan and India are not that ideal but this doesn’t even make a full-stop for King Kohli.
It will be noteworthy that from gifting Mohammad Amir his bat and sending a signed T-shirt to Shahid Afridi upon his retirement, Kohli has been in the news for all the good even cross-border. His off-field friendship and on-field enmity with Pakistani pacer have always been the talks of the town, especially after Pakistani quick lead from the front to beat India and get his team wins the ICC Champions Trophy 2017.
As every of Kohli-fans knows he is good enough to be what he is and he didn’t sound diplomatic besides the fact he is the Indian Cricket Team captain.
