Mohammad Amir, a former Pakistan fast bowler, discussed his rivalry with India captain Virat Kohli and named the “most challenging” batsman he has faced.
Amir praised Kohli and praised his ability to thrive in high- pressure circumstances while speaking on Cricwick’s YouTube channel.
In addition, the Pakistan pacer stated that bowling to Rohit Sharma is easier than bowling to Kohli.
Amir’s views on Kohli and Rohit
“While bowling I swear, I didn’t find bowling to Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma difficult. I didn’t find it difficult at all. I find it easy to bowl to Rohit. And I feel I can dismiss him both ways. He struggles against in-swinging deliveries from left-handers, and even early on, he struggles against the ball that goes away. Virat Kohli, I find it slightly tough because he handles pressure conditions really well,” said Amir in an interview with Cricwick.
During the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy, Mohammed Amir took the wickets of Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and Shikhar Dhawan to demolish Team India’s top-order.
The former pacer went on to discuss his biggest hurdle on the international cricket.
He described Australia’s ace batsman Steve Smith as his most difficult opponent.
It is undeniable that Smith is currently considered as one of the best batsmen in the world
“Bowling to Steve Smith is the most challenging thing for me. Because his technique is quite challenging. He stands at such an angle that you don’t know where to bowl to him.” Said Amir
