Virat Kohli has a massive fan following not just in India but across the globe and there is no second opinion to that. The cricketer has made a name for himself with his prolific performances over the years. Even the greats of the game admire him for his ability to score runs with minimum effort. Time and again Kohli has proved that he is certainly one of the best cricketers to have ever played the game.
Although Kohli is going through a rough phase in his career as he has been searching for his 71st century for more than two-and-a-half years now, he is still counted among the bests in the world. The testimony for the same was seen in the third ODI between Pakistan and Australia at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore. A fan was spotted wearing the No.18 jersey with Kohli's name printed on it.
Many may think that what's so special in this. So, for those, the interesting thing was that it was not India's jersey with Kohli's name printed on it. It was the Pakistan team's match jersey, but it did not have Pakistan's No.18's name imprinted on it and rather India's No.18's name on it. And quite obviously, the pictures of the man started going viral on the internet.
Pakistan clinch ODI series 2-1
Now coming to the match, it was a clean performance from Babar Azam and Co. as they took the game by nine wickets. They also clinched the three-match series 2-1. The man of the moment for Pakistan was none other than the captain himself. With being named the Man of the Match for the 3rd ODI, Babar was also named the Man of the series for his prolific outing in the three games.
The Pak captain scored 276 runs in three games with two centuries. After being down 0-1, Pakistan made a comeback in the series and won the next two games to claim it 2-1.
