After India’s triumph over Pakistan in the 2023 World Cup, Virat Kohli had a special gift for Babar Azam. Despite not frequently facing each other on the cricket field, these two champions share profound mutual respect and admiration. Babar has long seen Kohli as a role model, while Kohli himself acknowledged Babar’s greatness in an interview last year, referring to him as “the top batter in the world across formats.”

Their camaraderie extends to their interactions on social media, with Babar extending heartfelt wishes to Kohli during a rough patch in his form, and Kohli expressing gratitude for the well-wishes.

On Saturday night, a new chapter in their camaraderie was written when Virat gifted Babar an autographed jersey after India’s victory over Pakistan. The two shared a wholesome moment, shaking hands and engaging in conversation, which resonated with fans, providing joy even after a one-sided game.

India secured a resounding win in the World Cup, extending their unbeaten streak against arch-rivals Pakistan to 8-0. Jasprit Bumrah was named Player of the Match as India achieved a seven-wicket victory. They chased down 192 runs in 30.3 overs, with Rohit Sharma playing a pivotal role with 86 runs off 63 balls, accompanied by a fifty from Shreyas Iyer.

Rohit praised his bowlers for setting up the game and shared his thoughts on the chase. He highlighted the importance of adaptability and strategy in their approach to each match, emphasizing the need for balance and calmness in the face of high-quality opposition.

As India progresses in the tournament, they remain cautious, knowing that every match poses a unique challenge.
