Nothing can be more than this that the whole cricketing world is celebrating your century and praising you. It has recently happened with former Indian skipper and senior batter Virat Kohli when he finally ended the wait for his 71st international century after 3 years. Especially, the players from the arch-rivals Pakistan heaped their praises on Virat Kohli.
They almost bowed down to the amazing performance of the modern-day batting great. This list includes the likes of former players in the form of Waqar Younis and Mohammed Amir alongside current players Hasan Ali and Imad Wasim.
They took to Twitter for appreciating the 33-year-old for his stellar comeback performance against Afghanistan in India’s last match in the super-4 round of the Asia Cup 2022.
Here’re tweets from Pakistan players for Virat Kohli:

All the talks about him being done and dusted but the response came from bat, people can talk, but the response is there in hardwork and God’s will. Great to see you replying the critics with the bat. All the best for upcoming matches! @imVkohli #AsiaCup2022 #ViratKohli pic.twitter.com/oHo3AkihTs
