During a recent chat with Zee News, Shoaib Akhtar said, “Today, there are no Pakistanis who say that India does not have a good team. They consider Virat Kohli is a great player and Rohit Sharma even greater. People here in Pakistan say, ‘he is the Inzamam-Ul-Haq of India’. People appreciate Rishabh Pant, for the way he had played in Australia. Then there is Suryakumar Yadav. He is being appreciated too. So, Pakistan holds a very good narrative about India.”
