Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) star batter Viral Kohli shut down his critics who doubted his T20 batting style recently. After scoring two back-to-back ducks in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL), Kohli stormed back to form with a scintillating century against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) on Thursday. It was his sixth ton overall in the cash-rich League. Kohli completed his century of just 63 deliveries which included 12 fours and four sixes.

Several fans and experts including Pakistan speedster Mohammad Amir hailed Kohli for his brilliant knock. Amir, one of the finest pace bowlers in Pakistan, called Kohli a ‘King’. 

“What a inning by one and only the real king @imVkohli. Take a bow,” he tweeted.

Amir’s tweet has reportedly gone viral within no time. It has so far garnered around 74,000 likes and several interesting comments.

Responding to the tweet, a fan wrote, “But u did not tweet when Babar Azam scored a hundred for Pakistan against NZ in Pindi, that Hypocrisy?”

“The king is only Babar Azam,” tweeted another fan.

“The Greatest Pakistani Bowler We've Ever Seen, thank you Amir,” a third user commented.
