Due to overcast conditions and a pitch tailor-made for bowlers, Sri Lanka made the most of it by dismissing India for a low total, but it was Virat Kohli who played a captain’s knock and that inning is receiving praise from across the border. A Pakistan news channel’s guest lavished praise on the Indian captain and said he is in a league of his own.

But the challenges after the Sri Lanka series would be difficult as team India travel offshores to take on South Africa in their backyard, which is slated to be a tough test for India.

But here’s how the Pakistani media reacted to Virat Kohli’s 18th Test ton.

During the interview, the anchor compares the Virat Kohli to Umar Akmal, to which the guest responded, “How can you even take the two names in the same breath. Virat Kohli is way, way ahead of Umar Akmal.” This shows the respect Pakistan cricket fans have for Virat Kohli. Finally, the sound guest draws a parallel where he talks of Kohli in the league of the Amlas and Smiths of the world.
