WATCH : Virat Kohli Hugged Haris Rauf Ahead Of The IND vs PAK Clash


Just last year, Virat Kohli treated cricket fans to one of the most iconic shots in the sport’s history, a breathtaking six over Haris Rauf during the 2022 T20 World Cup. Now, on the eve of the highly anticipated India vs. Pakistan clash set to take place tomorrow, these two remarkable cricketers crossed paths once again.

India and Pakistan are gearing up for a thrilling encounter in the 2023 Asia Cup, to be held at the Pallekele International Stadium in Kandy, Sri Lanka. All eyes are fixated on the star players, Virat Kohli and Babar Azam, whose performances are expected to play a pivotal role in determining the match’s outcome.

In the lead-up to the India vs. Pakistan showdown, both teams had their practice sessions scheduled simultaneously under the stadium’s floodlights in Kandy, creating an opportunity for players from both sides to engage with each other.

During this practice session, a heartwarming moment unfolded as Virat Kohli and Haris Rauf met once more. The duo shared a warm embrace and engaged in a friendly conversation just hours before they would face off again in this continental showcase event.

Last year, cricket enthusiasts were left in awe when Kohli executed a remarkable shot against Pakistani speedster Haris Rauf during the 19th over of a crucial match. Kohli, with a straight bat, sent the bowler’s good-length delivery soaring for a straight six. He followed it up with another six off the next delivery, with India needing 28 runs to win from the final 9 balls.

It’s worth noting that Haris Rauf had been exceptional in that game, dismissing key players like Rohit Sharma and Suryakumar Yadav. However, Kohli had different plans as he showcased his dominance in the pivotal 19th over. This memorable encounter between Kohli and Rauf led to the emergence of a friendly rivalry among fans, who are now eagerly anticipating their face-off in tomorrow’s upcoming battle.
