Shadab Khan says,

He (Virat Kohli) is a world-class player, definitely. You have to plan a lot to face him. The kind of batsman that Virat Kohli is, the way he has performed against us, even in the last match at the (2022 T20) World Cup, I don’t think that if any other batsman in the world was in that situation, could have done that to our bowling line-up. And, the beauty of it is that he can do this at any stage and at any time,

Virat Kohli has a stellar record against arch-rivals Pakistan. He averages unparallel 81.33 against Pakistan. However, the stellar innings against Pakistan in the T20 World Cup could be deemed as arguably one of his best knocks of all time. 

Shadab Khan is looking forward to Ind-Pak
