After two days after two days, former Indian captain Virat Kohli finally replied to Pakistan’s all-format captain Babar Azam‘s touching tweet that received a lot of attention from all over the world.
It is reported that the Indian player of the day, who is scheduled to play in the final game of the series with England today, reacted to Babar’s comments with a graceful response and wrote “Thank you. Keep shining and climbing. I wish you all the best.”
Virat Kohli has had an uphill battle in his career , and was dropped from cricket’s West Indies series squad. In the wake of his announcement on the team from the select committee Babar wrote “This will also be over. Be strong.”
The tweet provoked mixed reactions from cricket enthusiasts and former players as well as analysts applauded his slick action, which was met with a resounding YES from the captain of the all-format team responded in his own words.
As a player myself, I know you can go through such a phase (out of form) and I also know what a player goes through in such a phase. In those times, you need support. I just tweeted thinking that it will give just some support. He is one of the best players. He is playing a lot of cricket and he knows how to come out of these situations. It takes time, if you back players, it will be really good.
The national selection committee didn’t declare whether the top order batter was rested or dropped due to injuries concerns prior to the T20 World Cup in Australia.
There was a report last week in the past week that former Captain might be removed from the national team to play in 2022’s T20 World Cup 2022 if his performance is not up to par against England the selectors were uncertain of his place in the middle of the order.
