Players of the Indian cricket team have already arrived in Dubai for the Asia Cup 2022 starting on August 27. Men in Blue will begin their campaign in a high-voltage encounter against arch-rivals Pakistan on the following day.

Players from both the teams met each other in Dubai ahead of the high-octane clash. BCCI has uploaded a video on its social media handles in which the likes of Hardik Pandya, Yuzvendra Chahal could be seen chatting with the likes of Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi. However, all eyes were on former Indian skipper Virat Kohli as he met Pakistan skipper Babar Azam. Both were seen exchanging greetings.

While Babar is currently going through the form of his life, Virat is struggling with this long lean patch. Meanwhile, cricket buffs across the globe have started comparing the two cricketers.

Babar is an ardent supporter of Kohli and the Pakistan’s swashbuckling batter was over the moon after seeing one of the greats of Indian cricket.

Earlier this year, Babar dropped a message to support Kohli after the talismanic batter was dismissed for 16 in the second ODI against England at Lord’s.

Babar put out a tweet with a picture of him and Kohli from the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup last year, with the caption reading as “this too shall pass. Stay strong #viratkohli.”

Soon after the tweet was released, many cricket fans from around the world started praising Babar for supporting Kohli. Kohli too had replied to Babar’s post, thanking him for his words of support. “Thank you. Keep shining and rising. Wish you all the best (clap emoji),” read Kohli’s reply on Twitter.

Kohli returns to the Indian team for the Asia Cup in T20I format, having last played for the national team during the tour of England in July. He was then rested for white-ball tour of West Indies and ODIs against Zimbabwe. Kohli has been in a prolonged lean patch, having not scored a century in international cricket since November 2019.
