Pakistan head coach Mickey Arthur has made it clear that his side would make it very tough for India captain Virat Kohli to score a century, if he ever visited and played in the country.
Arthur’s comments come after Kohli achieved a unique following his maiden ODI century against South Africa. With his hundred, Kohli has now scored ODI hundreds in nine Full Member nations. The only country missing from the list is Pakistan.
Given the frosty relations between the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), it is unlikely that Kohli will add Pakistan to that list anytime soon.
But, in the off chance it happens, Arthur reiterated that the 29-year-old will struggle to reach the triple figure mark.
“Kohli is a fantastic player but our team will make it hard (for him) to score a century there (Pakistan),” Arthur was quoted as saying by CricTracker. “It has been a great pleasure to watch Kohli scoring against all teams and it is always enjoyable to watch him batting. However, our bowlers will not make it easy for him to score there.
“Hopefully, India will come to play in Pakistan.”
