On Virat Kohli’s dismissal in Champions Trophy
While talking about his two deliveries to Virat Kohli is Champions Trophy, Aamir said gthat he believes those deliveries changed his image in the United Kingdom.
“The catch being dropped first and Kohli getting out on the second was a big achievement. And because of that we had won 60 to 70 percent of the match because India relies a lot on Kohli.”
“I remembered Fakhar Zaman’s moment when he scored a hundred after been given another second chance. When I was going back to my bowling mark. I was praying to God that something similar doesn’t happen but he got out next ball,” he said.
He further stated that he is satisfied with his performance since his comeback to cricket after a long 5 years break.
“I am satisfied with my performance. If after five years a bowlers come and plays all three formats, plays the leagues, I think it’s a big achievement. If you see in 2016, I had bowled second most overs for Pakistan. I cant say I have done very well but feelings are mixed.”
