Former cricketer Shoaib Akhtar on Tuesday termed Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli a “true sportsman” and a “great human being” for his gesture of goodwill towards Pakistan’s national squad even though Pakistan routed India by 10 wickets in the high voltage match in the ongoing T20 World Cup in UAE.

The fast bowler shared his statement given to a private Indian news channel on his Twitter account.

“For the cricketer in me, the biggest moment was when Babar Azam hit those winning runs against Mohammad Shami. But for the human in me, the biggest moment was when I saw Virat Kohli wholeheartedly congratulating Babar and Mohammad Rizwan,” the statement read.

“True sportsman and great human being @imVkohli hats off to you,” said Akhtar.
