The famous English cricketer Kevin Pietersen tweeted a beautiful message in support of his “friend” and former Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) colleague after Babar Azam, the captain of Pakistan, offered support to Virat Kohli, the former captain of India, during his decline in form across formats. Babar’s tweet, which he tweeted shortly after Kohli was dismissed for 16 off 25 in the second ODI of the three-match series against England at the Lord’s on Thursday, drew a huge response from people all around the world, who praised his class act.

This will pass too. Stay Strong,” Babar tweeted when Kohli was out, extending his century drought across all forms to 77 innings and 964 days. On November 23, 2019, at Kolkata during the Pink Ball Test against Bangladesh, he last recorded a century.

“Buddy, your career has had some of the finest that have played the game only dream they could have done what you have,” Pietersen said with a photo of the two on Instagram on Saturday (so far). Walk tall, be proud, and have fun in life. There is a lot more to the world than simply the cricket bubble. You’ll return, @virat.kohli”

“Good job, big man! People can only imagine what you’ve accomplished in cricket. And they are among the game’s top players ever, he subsequently tweeted.

So far, Kohli’s visit to England has been disappointing. In the Edgbaston Test, he scored 31 runs in two innings, but just 12 runs in the T20I games he participated in the subsequent series.

Due to a minor groin issue, Kohli then missed the first ODI of the series at The Oval before returning to score only 16. On Sunday in Manchester during the last ODI of the series, he will get his last opportunity on the trip.

Idia will play five T20Is and three ODIs during the limited-overs trip to the West Indies without Kohli.
