Mohd Amir Responds to Virat Kohli's Praise For Him

The mutual respect between India captain Virat Kohli and Pakistan's tearaway pacer Mohammad Amir is not a secret, and it once again came to the fore when the Pakistani returned Kohli's compliment saying he is "the biggest challenge for bowlers" in the world. Though several former cricketers have said that Dhoni should bat up the order as it will give him much time in the middle to capitalise. Kohli admitted this during a chat show that also featured the legendary Bollywood actor Aamir Khan. Praising the right-arm middle order batsman, he added, "So I have to focus and do my best to target him".

As India gear up for the three-match One-day International (ODI) series against New Zealand starting on October 22, BCCI uploaded a video of a practice session where Dhoni shimmies down the wicket and blasts the bowler for a huge six nearly recreating the World Cup winning hit. "You have to be on your "A" Game when you're facing him or he will strike". "Oustanding! Very good bowler!"

"The way he presented me with a bat in Kolkata is an evergreen memory for me". "No doubt, if he requires something from me, I will definitely give it". During this year's ICC Champions Trophy final in England, Amir dismissed Kohli as Pakistan won the title defeating India by 180 runs. Aamer said Kohli is the best batsman in world cricket today and one needs to bring out his A game while playing against him. However, Kohli is the richest cricketer at the moment with his earnings from the BCCI, brand endorsements and IPL fees.
