Indian skipper and one of world’s best batsman, Virat Kohli has called Shoaib Akhtar a terrifying bowler for batsmen to face.
During an interview segment, ‘Breakfast with Champions,’ Kohli said that Shoaib Akhtar was a terrifying bowler to face. He said that he couldn’t face him in his career, but realizes how the other batsmen must have felt while playing him.
Kohli also added that after Akhtar, the next bowler he was terrified of facing was Pakistan’s 7-foot left-arm paceman Mohammad Irfan and he troubled him during Pakistan vs India encounters.
In another interview given earlier this month, Kohli was also all praise for another Pakistani pace bowler, Mohammad Amir. When asked about the best bowler he had faced and who made him nervous, Kohli had replied with Mohammad Amir’s name.
