IND vs PAK: “Bolne Se Kuch Nahi Hota” Said Shadab Khan responding to Agarkar’s “Kohli Will Handle Them All” | India vs Pakistan Asia Cup 2023


IND vs PAK: Shadab Khan, a Pakistani all-rounder, poked light at BCCI chief selector Ajit Agarkar for allegedly making remarks on how Indian run machine Virat Kohli would handle Pakistan’s fearsome fast bowling unit. On September 2 in Pallekele, India’s Men in Blue will kick off their campaign for the Asia Cup 2023 against their bitter rivals. Everyone has been eagerly anticipating Virat Kohli’s matchup with Pakistan’s potent bowling arsenal.

The heat of the IND vs PAK high-voltage encounter during the Asia Cup 2023 is building, and cricket fans are excited to see how India’s ace batter Virat Kohli will respond to the Pakistani bowling assault. Ajit Agarkar, the head of selection, was falsely quoted a few days ago as saying, “Virat Kohli will handle them,” in response to a question on how Indian hitters will handle Pakistani pacers.

However, Ajit Agarkar, the chief selector for the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), was questioned about managing the acclaimed speed attack of Pakistan when the Indian selection for the Asia Cup was revealed. It is being claimed that in response, Agarkar said, “Virat Kohli will handle them.” Shadab Khan, a Pakistani all-rounder, has replied to Agarkar’s assertion by saying that only one’s actions on the field matter and not what is said prior to or during a game while being unaware that the comment was fake.

When it comes to the IND vs PAK in T20I World Cup in 2022, Kohli deserves special recognition for leading India to victory against Pakistan. The legendary batsman almost single-handedly carried the team to victory. While supporters anticipate more of the same from Kohli in the forthcoming Asia Cup, Shadab believes one won’t truly know what happens until the day itself.

He said, “Dekhiye, ye depend karta hai on a day. Main ya koi aur, ya unki taraf se koi aisa bol de, to bolne se kuch nahi hota, kuch change nahi hota. Jab match hoga, match mein jo cheejein nazar ayengi, asal cheez vahi hoti hai“.

“See, it all depends on what happens that day. Me or someone else, or someone from their side, can say whatever they want. It doesn’t make any difference. When the match takes place, then only we’ll get to know what is the reality.”

Since 2019, India’s Virat Kohli has only played against Pakistan in T20I games. Against pacers like Naseem Shah, Shaheen, Rauf, Hasan Ali, Mohammad Hasnain, and Shahnawaz Dahani, Kohli made 158 runs in 110 balls. Kohli has only been removed once, by Shaheen after getting a fifty in the 2021 T20 World Cup.
