Ex-Pakistan captain “Virat Kohli should have responded by now” to Babar Azam’s tweet. Babar Azam tweeted in support of Virat Kohli after he was dismissed in the second One-Day International against England.
Pakistan captain Babar Azam received widespread acclaim after tweeting in support of Virat Kohli, saying “this too shall pass.” Kohli has been struggling with his form, and he has yet to get going in the ongoing series against England. The right-handed batter edged a delivery well outside off-stump in the second ODI at Lord’s and thus lost his wicket. Former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi also weighed in on Babar’s support for Kohli, claiming that the latter should have responded by now.
“Cricket, like any other sport, helps to improve relationships. Babar has sent a wonderful message; I’m not sure whether Virat has responded or not. He should have responded by this point. If there is a response, it will be significant. But I doubt there would be any response “SAMAA News spoke with Afridi.
Babar Azam ” He is one of the best player in the league”
Babar addressed a press conference on the eve of the first Test against Sri Lanka, and he was asked about his tweet about Kohli. “As a player, I understand that you can go through such a phase (being out of shape), and I also understand what a player goes through in such a phase. You require assistance during these times. I just tweeted in the hopes of garnering some support. He is one of the best players in the league “During a press conference, Babar stated.
“He has a lot of cricket experience and knows how to get out of these situations. It takes time, but if you back players, it will be fantastic “He continued.
Babar and Kohli are currently regarded as two of the best batters in the world, and fans continue to debate who has the better cover-drive between the two stars. Kohli chased a wide delivery outside off-stump in the second ODI against England, and Jos Buttler took an easy catch.
Kohli’s last international century came in 2019, and the three-figure mark has eluded him since. The batter had struggled to find his rhythm in the Edgbaston Test and the two T20Is against England.
Kohli will not play in India’s upcoming ODI and T20I series against the West Indies, which begins on July 22. Kohli has been rested for the series, according to the news agency PTI.
