Babar has tweeted a sweet message in support of Kohli on Thursday, July 14, after the Indian captain was dismissed for just 16 runs in the second ODI against England at Lord’s. This came amid growing criticism of Kohli’s performance.

Former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi had earlier reacted to Babar’s tweet for Virat, saying that “Cricket has brought Pakistan and India closer. Babar Azam conveyed a very positive message to the world and I think Virat Kohli should’ve responded too.”

On Saturday, July 16, Kohli posted a response to Babar’s to the Pakistan skipper’s heartfelt gesture on Twitter. He expressed gratitude to Babar for his advice and wished him luck.

Kohli replying to the tweet, thanked Babar for his kind words, writing, “Thank you. Keep shining and rising. Wish you all the best.”

Babar had later explained the reason behind his tweet as well before the start of the Test series between Pakistan and Sri Lanka in Galle.

“As a player myself, I know you can go through such a phase (out of form) and I also know what a player goes through in such a phase. In those times, you need support. I just tweeted thinking that it will give just some support. He is one of the best players,” Babar said during a press conference.

Rohit Sharma, the veteran’s captain, also offered support for the batter, saying that Kohli only needs a few more innings to return to his peak form.

Kohli has now gone 77 consecutive international innings without a century. His last hundred came in 2019.
