Former Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar recently revealed that the Indian team's vice-captain Rohit Sharma is liked more than skipper Virat Kohli in Pakistan. Akhtar said that the people of Pakistan admire Rohit more and call him Inzamam of India.
Former Pakistani captain Inzamam-ul-Haq is counted among the greatest batsmen of all time in the world. Inzamam used to have a lot of time playing with the ball. He continued to be well-liked for 'Lazy Elegance' in the cricketing language. Similarly, Indian opener Rohit Sharma also plays the ball late and that pause is also seen in his batting.
There are no regular matches between India and Pakistan as before. But there is no dearth of excitement among cricket lovers about this match. Both the teams are starting the T20 World Cup 2021 this Sunday. Former cricketers from both countries are sharing their experiences.
In a conversation, Rawalpindi Express said that people in Pakistan praise Indian cricketers and their entire team a lot. Akhtar, 46, also said that his country has a positive attitude towards India.
Akhtar said, 'Today you will not find any Pakistani who says that India does not have a good team.' He said, 'They openly praise India. Of course, they believe that Virat Kohli is a great player but they considers Rohit Sharma to be even bigger than him'. People in Pakistan say, 'He is the Inzamam of India'. People praised the way Rishabh Pant batted in Australia. Then there is Suryakumar Yadav. He is also praised. So, Pakistan has a very good attitude towards India.
Akhtar has been regularly favouring India Pakistan cricket in the past as well. He also said that he considers himself lucky that he gets so much love from Indian fans.
