Pakistan captain Babar Azam has come out in support of fellow generational talent Virat Kohli after the latter’s dip in form. In a Tweet, Pakistani skipper advised the former Indian captain to ‘stay strong’. Kohli, 33, has been going through a prolonged lean patch and has not hit a century since 2019, with his future now a matter of intense public debate.
With a number of in-form batsmen pushing for a top-order berth, Kohli’s place in the T20 squad has been questioned, especially ahead of this year’s World Cup in Australia.
The national selectors did not clarify whether the top-order batter had finally been dropped or was merely being rested over injury concerns ahead of the T20 World Cup.
As Babar showcased true sportsmanship and went beyond the India-Pakistan hostility to back the Indian skipper, Twitter heaped praise on the captain of the Men In Green.
