Babar Azam tweeted to support former India skipper Virat Kohli, who is going through an extended spell of poor form. The veteran has not scored a century since 2019, and now even fifties are not coming from his willow.
Pakistan captain, who is the best batter at the moment, took to social media and wrote – “This too shall pass. Stay strong.#ViratKohli.”
When Babar was asked about the reason behind backing the legendary India player, he said – “Virat Kohli is one of the best players. I just tweeted thinking that it’ll give him some support. He’s playing alot of cricket and he knows how to come out of these situations.”
Babar would lead Pakistan in a two-Test series against Sri Lanka. The home team recently defeated Australia in the second Test to level the series 1-1.
On the other hand, Virat will be playing in the third and final ODI against England on Sunday.
