Watch Shaheen Afridi wish Virat Kohli to get back his form

Ahead of the Asia Cup 2022 match between India and Pakistan, players from both camps have been interacting with each other during practice sessions at the ICC Cricket Academy in Dubai. 

On Thursday, Shaheen Afridi chatted up with Indian players but none held more attention than the one he had with Virat Kohli. Interestingly, Afridi, who has been sidelined for Sunday’s match between the arch rivals India and Pakistan, wished India’s former captain to find his form again. 

Kohli, last hit a century in 2019 against Bangladesh in a day-night Test and ever since then, the three-figure mark has eluded him. This year, the right-handed batter was unable to even register a fifty against England in the multi-format series.

During the interaction between Shaheen and Kohli, the India batter first checked up on Pakistan pacer. And after that, Shaheen was heard saying: “Aapke lie dua kar rahe hai aap wapis form me aaye (We are praying that your form comes back)”.

Kohli was then seen having a smile on his face, and both Shaheen and the India batter shook each other’s hands.

Afridi is out of action currently due to a knee injury sustained on the tour of Sri Lanka and will miss the match. He though is part of the squad and currently in the UAE, where all teams are practicing before the start of the tournament.
