Wasim Akram, a cricketing legend, shocked Virat Kohli with his most recent disclosure in an unexpected turn of events. The legendary Pakistani seamer revealed that Virat Kohli had begun to show him in his dreams during an exclusive interview before the explosive India-Pakistan Super Four match in Colombo. Virat Kohli routinely receives more attention than his competitors due to his fame in the world of cricket, both on and off the field. Wasim Akram stated that the Indian cricket superstar had entered Akram’s dreams after closely tracking Virat’s recent performances, particularly in the run-up to the India-Pakistan match.
In their brief encounter before the game, the legendary Pakistani cricketer didn’t think twice to tell Virat Kohli about this special experience.
“I casually remarked to Virat Kohli, ‘You’ve begun visiting my dreams now,’ as I passed him today. What do you mean, Wasim bhai? he retorted. Akram laughed as he recalled the experience, “I said that after watching so much of his gameplay on television, I couldn’t get him out of my head.
Wasim Akram highlighted three outstanding match-winners while discussing famous players and their crucial roles in important games like the India-Pakistan match: Virat Kohli, Babar Azam, and Shaheen Shah Afridi. Players of their quality thrive in such intense situations, he noted.
The India vs. Pakistan matchups are what “Virat, Babar, Shaheen, and these match-winners live for. Making their imprint is more important to them than simply succeeding. These contests are spectacles rather than merely matches. The atmosphere in Colombo was electric with anticipation yesterday, Akram continued.
India’s Control over Colombo
The Indian cricket team got off to a good start in Colombo by entering the field first. In contrast to their prior performance, they confidently tackled the tournament’s powerful bowling attack. Shaheen Shah Afridi and Naseem Shah, a star-studded team, presented an efficient battle for captain Rohit Sharma and the rising prodigy Shubman Gill. Naseem Shah continued to be economical and applied pressure from one end while Afridi, despite his ability to swing the ball, battled to contain the Indian batsmen.
The opening duo, who had experienced early setbacks in their prior match, showed tenacity and developed a strong partnership of 121 runs. Both Gill and Rohit made it to their respective half-centuries but promptly lost their wickets.
Unfortunately, play was stopped in Colombo due to rain, with the score at 147 for two in 24.1 overs. KL Rahul, who was back, and Virat Kohli, who had scores of eight and seventeen, were at the crease.
India must prevail in at least two of the three Super Four stage matches to guarantee their place in the championship game. India’s next opponents after the match versus Pakistan are Sri Lanka on September 12 and Bangladesh on September 15. These future games look to be exciting contests as the teams compete for the Asia Cup title.
