Virat Kohli or Ahmed Shehzad? Pakistanis choose Indian cricket team captain
A meme on social media brought out the love Pakistanis have for Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli.cricket Updated: Sep 23, 2017 18:50 IST
Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli’s fans are spread across the world but when those who are across the border register their presence in any manner, it becomes really special.
Once again, Pakistani fans have made it clear that when it comes to Virat Kohli, their opinion is not going to be either biased or influenced by anything.
All that they seem to have is love and admiration for one of the finest batsmen in international cricket at present, which they never miss out on expressing.
A twitter account named ‘All Pakistan Memes’ with a few followers was left surprised when a tweet asking to pick a choice between Pakistan’s Ahmed Shehzad and Virat Kohli went viral, sparking interesting reactions from fans.
Pakistani fans voted in thousands in favour of the Indian run machine when the account shared a collage of Shehzad and Kohli, asking to ‘retweet’ for the Pakistani batsman and ‘like’ the tweet if they voted for the Indian cricketer.
Guess what? Kohli once again amassed numbers to such a great extent that those who picked Shehzad were left in a minority. Compared to Shehzad’s 300-odd retweets, Kohli generated more than 6,000 likes!
It was not only the numbers that Kohli garnered, but replies to the tweet showed how much Pakistan loves Kohli and how disappointed they have been with Shehzad, who has been long compared with the Indian cricketer for his looks.

Recently, when Pakistan welcomed international cricket back on its soil with top cricketers from as many as seven different countries descending upon Lahore to play in a T20I series, Pakistani cricket fans said they were missing Indian stalwarts like Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni.
When Virat Kohli had shared a picture of himself with names of some of the greatest cricketers ever seen, on the occasion of Teacher’s Day in India, many of the Pakistani fans appreciated Kohli’s gesture.
