India and Pakistan have remained the greatest of opponents when it comes to cricket. Generations have witnessed some of the most anticipated Indo-Pak matches ever played in the history of this sport. Most of the times, our players have surpassed them; however, Pakistani players have also proved their mettle time and again. The players from both the teams have expressed their respect and admiration for each other, keeping aside their rivalries on ground.

This time a positive exchange of words was seen between Virat Kohli and Pakistani speedster Shoaib Akhtar. It was Virat who admitted about not having faced Akhtar in any of the matches, lauding his competence and game spirit.

In a chat show titled ‘Breakfast with Champions’, Kohli said:

“I’ve never faced Shoaib Akhtar but I’ve seen him in a game in Dambulla against Pakistan. I got out, (so) I couldn’t face him. But I saw him bowl and he looked very lethal even at the later stages of his career. At that time, I felt (that) batsmen would not have wanted to face him when he was at his peak.”

“I was better off not bowling at all when #Kohli was batting. Jokes apart, he’s a gr8 batsman & bowling against him wud have been a gr8 contest.”
