Virat Kohli, a former captain of the Indian cricket team, is known for more than just his great playing skills. He also shows kindness and appreciation in his conversations and interviews.
In a video that has recently come back into view, Kohli praised Babar Azam, a famous cricketer from Pakistan, saying he’s one of the best batsmen in the world. Even though Kohli himself is a very good batsman, he openly talked about his positive friendship with Babar in an earlier interview.
Kohli remembered when they first met during the 2019 ODI World Cup in Manchester. Babar wanted to talk, so they discussed different aspects of the game. Kohli noticed that Babar had a lot of respect and humility, and this hasn’t changed over time.
Kohli really likes Babar’s cricketing skills, and this goes beyond countries and rivalries. The fact that one big cricket player is praising another shows how players can respect and support each other, even in a competitive environment. This makes Kohli even more special as a sportsman, as he values and appreciates greatness beyond his own team.
