Indian skipper Virat Kohli and Pakistani speedster Mohammad Amir seems to maintain a friendly relationship off the field unlike their gruesome battle on the field. Both the cricketers are the most lethal weapons their countries possess and are of great value to their teams.

However, the relationship between the two is of mutual love and respect while the fans continue to think otherwise. Mohammad Amir has been a great admirer of the Indian captain and has previously expressed his views on the same. Recently the Pakistani hailed the aggressive batsman as the best in the world rating him higher than the likes of Steven Smith, Joe Root and Kane Williamson.

On the other hand, Virat Kohli has also been aware of the immense talent of Mohammad Amir. The batsman gave a bat of his on the eve of their World T20 clash to the deadly pacer as a gift from his side. Mohammad Amir took the wicket of Virat Kohli in the recently concluded Champions Trophy final when the latter flicked an inch perfect delivery into the safe hands of Fakhar Zaman.

The main story:

According to reports, Virat Kohli gifted another bat to Amir, during the Champions Trophy campaign. It is great to see two stalwarts of the game of cricket share such a matured relationship off the field. Virat Kohli had also praised Mohammad Amir previously for his sensational comeback to cricket after serving a lengthy ban.

While the fans continue to make a scene out of nothing, the cricketers of both the countries share a healthy relationship and the Champions Trophy was a proof of the same. We saw former Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni pose with Pakistan captain Sarfraz Ahmed’s baby and the picture went viral like a disease. Indian cricketers including Dhoni, Kohli and Yuvraj also posed for the shutterbugs with Azhar Ali’s kids which were wonderful to see. Azhar Ali took to Twitter to thank the Indian players for taking out time and spending it with his kids.
