Even the one of the greatest batsmen to have ever graced the sport must have delved into major pushbacks against one fiercest bowler.
Indian superstar Virat Kohli who is deemed one of the best in contemporary cricket revealed the toughest bowler he ever faced in his career. He is none other than Pakistan’s great Mohammad Amir.
It is no doubt that Mohammad Amir has lived upto the reputation of being one of the best bowlers whose innovative bowling traits spicing up with probe variations of line and length is the ultimate bonanza for Pakistan.
The fiercest fast bowler has been the source of searing nightmare to most of the batsmen. He was able to find the concrete solutions to outsmart them in stark contrast to provide the much-needed breakthroughs.
“In the recent times, Mohammad Amir of Pakistan. He is in the top two or three bowlers in the world and the toughest bowlers I have played in my career.
You have to be on your ‘A’ Game when you’re facing him or he will strike. Oustanding! Very good bowler!” Kohli said in a recent chat with Bollywood superstar Amir Khan.
Mohammad Amir who had the cutting edge to cause chaos to Virat Kohli has also impressed the Indian superstar who had gifted a bat to Amir in what was a classy gesture. Kohli tagged Amir as ‘Word-class bowler’.
“I would like to complement Mohammad Amir for the way he bowled. I actually congratulated him while he was bowling. I was so happy to play such an amazing spell. He is a world-class bowler.”
Mohammad Amir came up with great words on Virat Kohli which turned to be a great deal of mutual respect between each other.
“Kohli’s praise made my day. It was generous of him what he said for me. It’s the sort of encouragement that you need and when it comes from a superstar like Virat, it means a lot.
On the other hand, it’s a big challenge for me as well because it adds to my responsibility to prove that I am worth that praise.
Even before the match, he used some good words for me. It was very kind of him,” Amir said.
