Fans lambast Pakistan pacer Sohail Khan for his controversial comments on Virat Kohli

Pakistan fast bowler Sohail Khan has been subject to huge criticism by cricket fans over his controversial remarks on India’s modern-day legend Virat Kohli. In an interview, Sohail revealed one of his heated arguments with Kohli during a 2015 ICC Men’s ODI World Cup match. However, his revelation put him on the target of cricket enthusiasts.

Sohail has appeared for Pakistan in 9 Tests, 13 ODIs and five T20Is, and his only five wicket-haul in a 50-overs format came against India in the same 2015 world cup game about which he talked in the interview. The 38-year-old pacer in the match took the wickets of Kohli, MS Dhoni, Suresh Raina and Ajinkya Rahane.

Talking about an incident from the encounter, Sohail told the interviewee about how he indulged in a heated verbal spat with then-India vice-captain Virat, who approached him and said that the right-arm pacer had just started playing cricket and shouldn’t be speaking too much.

Sohail further revealed that he already had played Test matches in 2006-07 but was forced out of action due to a knee injury, so he replied to Virat in a stern tone.

“Virat came. He said to me ‘Aap cricket mein abhi aaye hain. And itni baatein karte ho (You’ve just arrived, and you speak so much),” revealed Sohail on the Nadir Ali podcast.

“I said, ‘Beta jab tu Under-19 khel raha tha na, tera baap Test cricketer tha ‘(Son, when you were playing Under-19 for India, your father was a Test player) That’s how I said it. Then, if you look carefully, Misbah intervened, and he got angry at me. He asked me to keep quiet,” he added.

Soon after the podcast was released, Sohail faced the wrath of many sports fans across the globe, and some also didn’t shy away from trolling the former Pakistan cricketer on social media.
