Despite Virat Kohli not going for a big inning and scoring a big score, he won the hearts of many cricket fans with his sweet gesture of giving his signed jersey to Pakistan captain Babar Azam. Fanboy Babar Azam expressed his gratitude toward Virat Kohli’s gesture. The star batsman Virat Kohli gifted his signed jersey to Man in Green skipper Babar Azam following India’s historic victory over Pakistan at Narendra Modi Stadium where more than 1.25 lakh people visited to witness the El-Classico encounter of the ICC ODI World Cup. A video of Kohli and Azam standing together following the match is going viral on the internet. Netizens are calling it a brilliant gesture by Kohli for giving his jersey to his fan, Babar Azam. Let’s delve deep into the details and find out more details.
The viral video of Virat Kohli and Babar Azam shows they are standing close to each other while Kohli holding his jersey and signing on it before gifting it to Pakistan skipper Babar Azam. Reportedly, Babar Azam who is a big fan of Virat Kohli asked for Kohli’s jersey and Kohli did not refuse to do it. The fan moment of Babar Azam and Kohli has gone viral on the internet. After gifting his jersey to Babar Azam, Indian batsman Kohli went on to talk with a member of Pakistan’s supporting staff.
However, it was not the first time when 34-year-old Virat Kohli gifted a signed jersey to a Pakistani player. Previously, Virat Kohli did the same for Pakistan seamer Haris Rauf after a match in Asia Cup 2022. Virat gave a signed jersey to Haris Rauf after India’s 5-wicket win against Pakistan. Talking about the match, Team India registered a win against the arch-rival. This win of India has sent a warning to all teams that defeating India in India is almost impossible at this time.
India skipper Rohit Sharma opted to field first after winning the toss at the Narendra Modi Stadium. Meanwhile, Rohit’s decision was proven to be right as it had a perfect day. His strategies and bowling changes took the team far ahead of the opponents in the match. Jasprit Bumrah and other bowlers ruled the roost as they pounced on the “under pressure” Pakistan like a tiger and sent back visitors after scoring just 191 runs. Rohit Sharma then did the rest with the bat as his quick inning of 86 runs off 63 balls powered India to a convincing win.
