Mohammad Rizwan has a special wish for Virat Kohli ahead of his birthday on November 5. On November 5, India will face off with South Africa at Eden Gardens Kolkata.


In the off-field context, the cricket players of India and Pakistan exhibit a pleasant relationship despite their intense rivalry. One of the Pakistani notable cricketers, Mohammad Rizwan, recently expressed a special wish for Virat Kohli. Since, Virat Kohli is about to surpass Sachin Tendulkar’s record for the most ODI hundreds. Moreover, with 48 ODI centuries to his credit, Kohli will try to match Tendulkar’s record of 49 centuries. In the coming match between India and Sri Lanka on Thursday, the spectators will expect Virat to smash his 49th hundred. On Tuesday, October 31, the Pakistan squad landed at the city of joy for an encounter against Bangladesh. A fan at Sourav Ganguly stand questioned Mohammad Rizwan about his wishes for Virat Kohli’s birthday.

“Brother, (Virat) Kohli will play here on his birthday (November 5, India vs South Africa). Do you have any wishes for him?” he was asked. Following the question, Mohammad Rizwan reply was(quoted by Sportstar),

“Sirf mohabbat hai. Inshallah, idhar unka 49th kya 50th hundred bhi ho jaaye (I only have love for him. God be willing, may he get both his 49th and 50th ODI century here)”

In Dharamshala, Virat Kohli was on the brink of achieving his 49th century. However, he fell short by five runs. Moreover, in the last game against England, Virat Kohli had another chance to equal his ODI centuries with Sachin Tendulkar. However, he was out for a duck. At the moment, Kohli is sixth in the tournament’s run-scoring rankings. In six games, he smashed 354 runs at an average of 88.50.
