“There is no doubt that Virat Kohli is the world number one,” said Rizwan Paktv.tv.

“When we play cricket, we are all like family. When we critiqued Pant after he played a reverse sweep, he (Kohli) said, are you trying to get us all out in 10 overs?” – he added.

The Pakistani bowlers were on top of their match against India from the start sending the opening pair of Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul cheaply in the first three overs before Suryakumar Yadav was sent off in the sixth overs. Kohli’s 57 and Rishabh Pant’s 39 helped the Men in Blue post 151 runs on the board.
