Pakistan bowler Mohammad Amir is nothing but praises for Indian skipper Virat Kohli. The left-arm bowler has lauded Kohli for his contribution to Indian cricket. Not only that, but Amir also believes that he has respect for Kohli off-field for the person he is.

In a recent interview, Mohammad Amir voiced his opinions on the Indian skipper. In the past, Virat Kohli has also heaped praise on Amir. Virat Kohli reckons Amir as one of the toughest bowlers he faced. He also believes that Amir is an outstanding bowler and that he can do wonders for Pakistan’s national side.

Mohammad Amir made it clear during the interview that he has no intention to play Test Cricket. His only focus as of now is to extend his white-ball career. In 36 Test Matches, Amir bagged a total of 119 wickets with a bowling average of 30.48. In the ODI format, Amir played 61 matches and picked up 81 wickets for Pakistan. Amir also boasts an outstanding ODI economy of just 4.78. Amir has played a total of 50 T20Is for Pakistan. In his T20I career, Amir picked 59 wickets with an economy of 7.02.

Amir has bagged Kohli’s wicket in two huge ICC events

On account of unstable political relations between the two countries, India and Pakistan do not play a bilateral series. Due to this, we only get to witness this clash in ICC tournaments. One riveting anchor between these two arch-rivals was in the final of the ICC Champions trophy back in 2017.

Pakistan got off to a blinding start. Fakhar Zaman and Azhar Ali put up a superb partnership of 128. Zaman played a standout knock of 114 runs in just 106 balls. India’s bowling was shambolic at best as Pakistan posted a total of 338/4 on the board. Rohit Sharma could not get off the mark as Amir dismissed him for a duck. Amir bowled an outstanding spell of 3/16 in 6 overs. Amir managed to pick the wicket of Kohli, who got out for just 5 runs. India eventually was bowled out for 158 runs as Pakistan were crowned the champions of the ICC Champions Trophy in 2017.

The second occasion was in England 2 years later. Amir was again spectacular with the ball, picking 3 wickets in 10 overs. However, he didn’t get any support from his team as India posted 335 on the board. Amir managed to dismiss Kohli, who got out for a well-played 77. India eventually went on to win the match.
