Former Pakistani International claims that Virat Kohli will be Naseem Shah’s bunny in the future.
Former Pakistani International on the Naseem Shah-Virat Kohli duel: The Pakistani fans believe Naseem Shah, the 17 years old to be the rising star of Pakistan cricket. Shah has been in the limelight since making his debut for the Pakistan Team against Australia down under.
He bowled brilliantly against Sri Lanka in the home series and picked up a five-wicket haul against them. He continued to perform brilliantly for the national team. Naseem Shah went on to pick up a hat-trick against Bangladesh in Rawalpindi in February this year.
He is a big prospect in world cricket for the future, given the skills he has. Naseem Shah in a recent interview made his statement regarding the possibility of bowling to one of the best batsman in the world currently, Virat Kohli. He revealed that he respects Virat Kohli a lot but does not fear the Indian captain.
Naseem Shah about Virat Kohli:
“As for Virat Kohli, I respect him but don’t fear him. It’s always a challenge to bowl to the best, but that’s where you have to raise your game. I look forward to playing against Virat Kohli and India whenever that chance comes,” Naseem had said in an interview with PakPassion.
The battle between the duo will be one to watch out for in future, whenever both Pakistan and India lock horns against each other. Now, former Pakistan International Faisal Iqbal has revealed his opinion regarding the battle between the duo. He feels that Shah will trouble the Indian captain with his pace and swing. He also said Kohli will eventually become Naseem’s bunny.
Former Pakistan International about the Kohli-Shah duel:
Iqbal wrote on Twitter, “With due respect to Virat as a great batsman I am sure our upcoming superstar fast bowler @iNaseemShah with genuine pace and swing Virat will be his bunny anytime.” Iqbal further added: “Looking forward to the future battle,” with the hashtag Respect for both.
Naseem’s thoughts on an India-Pakistan game:
Naseem even spoke about his eagerness to feature in an India-Pakistan game. He feels that a player can either become an overnight hero or an overnight villain in these games.
“Yes definitely. India versus Pakistan is always special and I have already been told that players can become heroes and villains in those matches. They are special matches as they happen so rarely. Yes, I am looking forward to playing against India whenever that opportunity arises. I hope that I can bowl well against India when that chance comes by and won’t let our fans down,” Naseem had said.
