 Pakistan’s young pace sensation is all praises for Virat Kohli for his down-to-earth nature

Virat Kohli is a contemporary legend who has taken Indian cricket to greater heights with his consistence performances for over 15 years now. Virat Kohli is arguably hailed as the biggest brand in the cricketing world and his popularity competes with other global athletes worldwide. But as they say with greatness comes humility and despite having such a huge stature in world cricket, Virat Kohli comes out as a humble and down-to-earth guy

Virat Kohli comes out as someone who does not shy away from expressing his emotions on the field which may come out as brash to many but if you know him outside the field then Virat is one of the nicest guys you will see. Pakistan young speedster Naseem Shah is one of the recent players to vouch for Virat Kohli’s humble nature out of the field.

Naseem Shah recently featured in international cricket in the Asia Cup game against India in 2023 and suffered from a shoulder injury in the game which kept him out of the game for months. Naseem Shah went on to miss the 2023 ODI World Cup in India as he went for surgery in London.

But in a recent interview, Naseem Shah recalled his meeting with Virat Kohli during the Asia Cup and praised his humility and how he jelled with the Pakistani players despite being such a big name in international cricket.

In an interview with Sama TV, Naseem Shah said, “Virat Kohli cracks jokes in Punjabi with Shadab. He’s very humble. He always greets us before a match which is very nice. He has no air about him being a sports star. Obviously, when playing, he’s very focused but off the field, he’s very normal.”

Since his debut in November 2019 at the age of 15, Shah has played in 17 Test matches, 14 One Day Internationals (ODIs), and 19 Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is) for Pakistan. However, when Virat Kohli busted into the scene he was looked at as a brash young lad who was on your face but with time he curbed his naturally instinctive instincts and became calmer with time.
