IND vs PAK: Virat Kohli gifts his signed jersey to Babar Azam as duo's heartwarming chat goes viral - WATCH
As the Men in Blue lead 8-0, Team India has maintained their dominance over Pakistan in the history of the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup. Following the game, Indian batting prodigy Virat Kohli was observed chatting with Pakistani captain Babar Azam and giving him his autographed jersey.
An ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 encounter between two historic rivals, India and Pakistan, at the world's largest stadium, and the hosts sealed it with grace and ease, chasing down 191 runs in just 30.3 overs.
Team India's dominance saw them make it 8-0 in ODI World Cup history against their arch-rivals as Pakistan collapsed to be bowled out for 191 from 155/2.
India has won three World Cups in a row, but the highlight of the game came afterward, when the two stars, Virat Kohli and Babar Azam, exchanged greetings.
Kohli produced his autographed jerseys and presented them to Pakistan captain Babar, who was nice enough to accept it with a smile despite a beating.
The two were spotted speaking for a few minutes as Babar sought advise from the senior statesman. Kohli, too, carefully conveyed his experience as the duo's emotional conversation went viral.
Both hitters had very different days in terms of personal performance and team outcome. Babar batted aggressively and got a well-constructed fifty, but his wicket sparked a terrible collapse for his team.
Kohli was dismissed softly after failing to gain elevation while trying a lofted ball over mid-on off Hasan Ali. However, a 7-wicket victory with 117 balls remaining for his team was as complete as it could be.
After scores of 5 and 10 in the previous two games, it was a welcome return to form for Babar, while Kohli was coming off two back-to-back half-centuries but was bowled out cheaply in Ahmedabad on Saturday, October 14.
India will play Bangladesh in Pune on October 19, while Pakistan will travel to Bengaluru on October 20 to face the five-time world winners Australia.
