The world has probably not seen a player as animated and dynamic like Virat Kohli. The India skipper loves to be animated on the field for the entire match. It does not matter what the occasion is, the intensity level does not decrease at all. Roaring, shouting, giving send-offs and then celebrating his heart out with his teammates, Kohli never shies away from showing the range of emotions on the cricket field.

Well, Kohli was in his elements on Sunday when India took on arch-rivals Pakistan. The India star was at his expressive best as he once again hogged the limelight on the field. Kohli celebrated wildly after every dismissal but the best was seen when he was sitting in the dugout perhaps just before the start of Pakistan’s innings.
Kohli was seen mimicking someone, leaving his teammate Kuldeep Yadav in splits. The fans were quick to infer that the India skipper was mimicking his Pakistan counterpart Sarfaraz Ahmed and was telling Kuldeep, ‘Amir ball la (Amir bring the ball)’.
Here is that hilarious clip showing Virat Kohli mimicking Sarfaraz Ahmed:
Talking about the game, India beat Pakistan by 89 runs (DLS method). Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul laid the platform for the big total of 336 for 5 by adding 136 runs for the first wicket. The partnership ended when Wahab Riaz sent back Rahul for 57. But Rohit went on to make the most of his start and smashed a breathtaking 140 while skipper Virat Kohli scored 77 as India piled up the huge total.
In reply, Pakistan started disastrously by losing Imam-ul-Haq cheaply. Fakhar Zaman and Babar Azam then revived their hopes by taking the score past the 100-run mark. However, once Kuldeep castled Babar, there was no looking back. Pakistan soon slipped from 117 for 1 to 129 for 5. They eventually finished their innings on 212 for 6 in the rain-affected match.
