Pakistani top batter, Muhammad Rizwan, recalls how Indian skipper Virat Kohli reacted in the field during the India-Pakistan match in the T20I Cricket World Cup match.

Rizwan said that Virat Kohli reacted when the Pakistan team took the review on the wicket of Rishab Pant.  “No doubt Virat Kohli is number one in the world,” Rizwan told Paktv. tv. “When we play cricket, we are all like a family. When we took a review against Pant after he played a reverse sweep, he (Kohli) said are you trying to get all of us out in 10 overs?”

The Pakistani cricketer said that he said a few things when the Pakistani team was batting. “When we were batting, he also said a few things. I can’t repeat the things that were said, but all I can say is that he is a really nice guy.” But despite this exchange, Rizwan believes Virat Kohli is a ‘nice guy.

Pakistan had chased down 152 without a loss of wicket against India in the first match of the ICC T2OI World Cup. Both Rizwan and Babar Azam exchanged hugs and handshakes after the match. The picture of Virat Kohli hugging and praising Muhammad Rizwan following the match had gone viral on social media.

Yesterday, Indian Test skipper, Virat Kohli, came under fire for expressing anger at South African broadcaster, SuperSport, after South African player Dean Elgar was reprieved in a review decision.

Not just Kohli but several other Indian cricketers including Ravi Chandran Ashwin and KL Rahul voiced rage against the host broadcaster after a review decision went against India. The incident happened on the third day of the final test in Cape Town.

In the 21st over of the innings, South Africa chased 212 runs to win the series at 60-1 when R Ashwin hit Dean Elgar on the pads. The on-field umpire, Marais Erasmus, gave out (lbw) to Elgar. The decision was overturned on review decision through ball-tracking showing the ball going over the stumps.

The ball-tracking technology is approved by HawkEye, an independent body that relays the data to the host broadcaster.

Upset by the decision, Virat Kohli walked straight up to the stumps and spoke into the mic, saying, “Focus on your team while they shine the ball. Not just the opposition. Trying to catch people all the time.”

KL Rahul was immediately heard saying, “It’s the whole country against 11 guys.” While Ashwin directly targeted the broadcaster when he said, “You should find better ways to win, SuperSport.”
