India’s batting stalwart and former captain Virat Kohli enjoys a massive fan following. The batter’s fanbase is not just confined to India but to all over the globe. Kohli gets a fair amount of love from across the border as well. There have been many instances when Pakistani fans have openly shown their love for the Indian batter. 

While a fan travelled all the way from Pakistan to Dubai for a picture with Kohli (during Asia Cup 2022), another has requested the batter to play a match in Pakistan before he decides to hang his boots. A Kohli fan was spotted with a banner during the 6th T20I between Pakistan and England. 'Kohli, play in Pakistan before you retire,' read the message from the viral fan who has taken the internet by storm.


Although the fan won hearts with his lovely message for Kohli, it seems difficult for his wish to come true. India and Pakistan don’t play bilateral series anymore due to geopolitical tension between the two nations. So, Kohli travelling to the neighbouring country does not seem like a possibility. However, it may be possible when the batter travels for the next edition of the Champions Trophy. 

Coming to Virat Kohli, the batter has regained his form as he recently hit his 71st international century. The batter scored an unbeaten 122 against Afghanistan in India’s last match of the Asia Cup 2022 to end an almost three-year-long wait. The batter is currently taking part in the India-South Africa T20I series. 

He did not have an expected outing in the first match as he was dismissed cheaply (3 off 9) by Anrich Nortje. However, there are still two games left and Kohli will look to keep the momentum with him when he lands in Australia for the much-awaited T20 World Cup.
