Pakistan pace icon Wasim Akram has praised India captain Virat Kohli for scoring plenty of runs over the past few years.
His comments come after Kohli scored 57, which came off 49 balls and included five boundaries and a six, in India’s 10-wicket loss to Pakistan in the T20 World Cup on Sunday.
Pakistan’s victory marked their first-ever World Cup win over India.
“Scored all those runs over these years,” Wasim told Salaam Cricket as quoted by Cricket Pakistan.
Kohli will be aiming for another big score and hoping India rebound from their loss to the men in green when they take on New Zealand on Sunday.
Pakistan, meanwhile, took down New Zealand by five wickets on Tuesday.
They will be looking to make it three wins out of three when they take on Afghanistan on Friday.
