Want to be a professional cricketer?
The Indian captain Virat Kohli is undoubtedly one of the greatest batsmen in international cricket history. Admitting this fact, the former Pakistan cricketer Faisal Iqbal confidently believes that Kohli will be the youngster Naseem Shah’s bunny.
The 31-year-old Virat Kohli is one of the most consistent batsmen in every format of international cricket as the right-handed batsman has maintained the average of 50+ in every international format. At present, Kohli is the no.1-ranked ODI batsman, no.2-ranked Test batsman and no.10-ranked T20I batsman. Not only in India, but Kohli has also maintained his magic with the bat in every place of the cricket world.
On the other hand, the 17-year-old Pakistan right-arm fast-bowler Naseem Shah, who made his international debut in last November, has already impressed with his bowling skills. He has taken 13 wickets in four Tests, including one hat-trick.
Recently, the youngster Shah has wished to bowl well against Kohli when they will meet in future. While he respects the top-class batsman Kohli, he doesn’t fear him. The young Pakistan bowler wants to take this challenge to raise his game.
Looking forward to the future battle between Virat Kohli and Naseem Shah: Faisal Iqbal
Faisal Iqbal, who played 26 Tests and 18 ODIs for Pakistan, has admitted Kohli’s great batting skills, but he is also confident about Shah’s success against the present Indian captain. Iqbal feels that Kohli will fail to handle Shah’s pace and swing as Kohli will become the youngster’s bunny in future.
Sharing Shah’s recent comment, Iqbal wrote on his official Twitter account, “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. Looking forward to the future battle.”

As India-Pakistan doesn’t play the bilateral series since 2012/13, we may have to wait for little more time, especially during this pandemic, to see the first battle between Virat Kohli and Naseem Shah. Also, Shah hasn’t made his limited-overs debut in the international career yet, which is very important to fulfil his meeting with Kohli in the present time due to both countries haven’t involved in the Test cricket since December 2007.
