Virat Kohli has been the most important wicket to pick for any opposition. Bowlers have liked their battles against him and Virat Kohli has taken them up to the fore. Virat Kohli has made run scoring look easy and continues to be one of the most dominating batsman across formats. Tearaway young Pakistan fast bowler Naseem Shah looks intimated to Virat Kohli and recently said that, ‘I respect Virat Kohli but I don’t fear him’.
“India versus Pakistan is always special and I have already been told that players can become heroes and villains in those matches,” Naseem was quoted as saying by PakPassion.net.
“They are special matches as they happen so rarely and yes, I am looking forward to playing against India whenever that opportunity arises. I hope that I can bowl well against India when that chance comes by and won’t let our fans down.
“As for Virat Kohli, I respect him but don’t fear him. It’s always a challenge to bowl to the best, but that’s where you have to raise your game. I look forward to playing against Virat Kohli and India whenever that chance comes,” he added.
Naseem Shah, 17, has played four Tests for his national team. He had hit the money straight on and picked up 13 wickets in the longest format with already a five-wicket haul to his name. He, however, is still to face arch-rivals India in a clash but is contended to take them on.
