While Pakistan captian Babar Azam extends support to Virat Kohli. Pakistan cricket team captain Babar Azam has extended his support to former Indian captain Virat Kohli, who is struggling with his form these days.
Kohli, who has been a run machine for India and has starred in many wins for his side, has now lost his mojo and has been struggling to score big runs for a year. He is also facing criticism from the media and several members of the cricket fraternity have suggested he should take a break from international cricket.
Pakistan’s all-format captain Azam showed his support for Kohli and tweeted “this too shall pass.”
“As a player (tough) times can fall on you as well,” Azam said ahead of his side s opening Test in Sri Lanka.
“I know how a player goes through such times and how he comes out of it. So he needs support in those times and as a player I tweeted to support him.”
