Pakistan quick Mohammad Amir has heaped praise on India captain Virat Kohli, saying he “handles pressure conditions really well”.
This, according to Amir, is one of the reasons why he finds it slightly tougher to bowl to the Indian superstar.
Kohli is widely regarded as the best batsman in world cricket and among the top skippers in the game as well.
“Virat Kohli, I find it slightly tough because he handles pressure conditions really well,” he told Cricwick as quoted by Cricket Pakistan.
Amir retired from international cricket in December 2020 after alleging that he was being “mentally tortured” by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and felt that the current team management had deliberately been snubbing him for selection.
However, he has confirmed that he will consider returning once the current team management, which includes head coach Misbah-ul-Haq and bowling coach Waqar Younis, leaves.
Amir is currently representing the Karachi Kings in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) and has taken four wickets in seven matches at an average of 57.25 and an economy rate of 8.27.
