During the Nadir Ali Podcast, Ahmed recalled the hilarious incident from the 2019 World Cup that involved Virat Kohli. Sarfaraz said, “When we asked about the hype surrounding an India vs Pakistan match and how we react when people ask us for tickets, I said you can ask Virat first. I told him brother, why don’t you answer first?
"And Virat just started and went on. It was in England. I looked at him and was like ‘Bhai kab rukega? (When will you stop?). He kept using long words in English and all I could think of at that moment was ‘Who is going to translate all of this?’. I kept listening and said ‘Same answer’.”
