Afghanistan’s star bowler Mujeeb ur Rahman has taken a pick between India captain Virat Kohli and banned Australian captain Steve Smith for his favourite batsman. It is a reason for the Viratians to celebrate as King Kohli happens to be Rahman’s favourite player, he revealed it in an Instagram convo with a fan who posed the question.
Rahman, who is a part of the Kings XI Punjab franchise in the IPL, named his choice in a #AskMeAQuestion session.
Meanwhile, both Kohli and Smith have had a contrasting 2018. If Kohli has become the No. 1 batsman in the world in Tests and ODIs, then, on the other hand, Smith has been banned from playing cricket after he was caught in a ball-tampering incident earlier in the year.
Kohli recently became the fastest batsman to complete 10,000 ODI runs and the only Indian to score three consecutive centuries in the 50-over format. Kohli has been in the form of his life, whereas the New South Wales-born cricketer has been away from the game due to the ban imposed by Cricket Australia.
