Haris Rauf, the Pakistani pace bowler who played for Lahore Qualandars in the Pakistan Super League 2023, has desired his ambition to take Virat Kohli’s wicket. It has been nearly 7 months since India met Pakistan in the T20 World Cup game, which was won by Virat Kohli’s incredible six against Haris Rauf. People’s memories have formed a place in their thoughts.
Much has been said about the game, and the Pakistani fast bowler even admitted that only the former Indian captain could have hit such a shot against him. Rauf was seen conversing with Peshawar Zalmi skipper Babar Azam during the practice session in a video published by Lahore Qalandars on social media. During the conversation, Rauf stated that he would do everything to get rid of these two outstanding batters.
I just need to take your wicket: Haris Rauf
The Pakistani pacer stated, “No matter what happens, I just need to take your wicket! Only (Virat) Kohli and you are the exceptions right now. (Kane) Williamson was saved from slip twice. But I have these 3-4 players in my mind.” However, he missed Babar Azam’s wicket in the 15th match of Pakistan Super League 2023 at Gaddafi Stadium, Lahore.
Kohli followed it up with another six to put India back into the game, and the Rohit Sharma-led squad went on to win by four wickets off the last ball of that contest. He batted brilliantly and finished undefeated on 82 from 53 balls. In recent years, Kohli has been in average form in Test cricket. In 23 Tests during the past three years, he has scored 1,239 runs at an average of 31.76, with six half-centuries and a century. The only century came in March of this year, against Australia. The Indian batsman will be eager to regain his normal score hitting form in his prefered format throughout the forthcoming series.
The Indian cricketers landed in the Caribbean islands nine days before the first Test, which provided them with an excellent opportunity to put their skills to the test in a match-like simulation in Barbados.
