The second T20I between India and West Indies saw Virat Kohli get to a half-century. He scored 52 from 41 balls, and played the role of an anchor. In the end, his knock proved to be very crucial as the men in blue ended up winning the game by eight runs and thus, won the series as well.
In the meanwhile, one of his ardent fans was spotted in Pakistan. Owing to his game and stature, the batting maestro has a huge fanbase all over the world. Thus, during the ongoing Pakistan Super League (PSL), a fan was seen in a stadium, holding a poster of the Indian batter.
“I want to see your century in Pakistan #Peace”, was written on the poster. Thus, the picture of the fan with the poster instantly went viral. Several fans went on to share the same image as well.

However, it is to be noted that Kohli has never played a game in Pakistan. As a matter of fact, India last toured the country in 2008, a few months before Kohli’s debut.
In the meanwhile, Kohli’s half-century came as a huge sigh of relief for him as he was struggling in the last few games. Thus, he drew light on his knock on Friday, and said that he felt positive. However, he stated that he was disappointed that he couldn’t continue.
“For me, it’s always been an opportunity to bat well in different situations for the team, today when I went in I decided to be positive, then we lost a few wickets,” said Virat Kohli during the post-match interview.
“I wanted to continue in the same way, probably disappointed to get out at the time I did because I set up the game nicely for me to go hard in the last 4-5 overs which is the way I bat, which is my strength. I was happy that I went out with clear intent today, not thinking so much about whether I should try my shots or not and it came off. It’s a nice way to start that innings for myself,” he added.
