Mohammad Amir Picked “Most Difficult” Batsman He’s Bowled To And It’s Neither Virat Nor Rohit: Indian skipper Virat Kohli and vice-captain Rohit Sharma are two of the most prominent cricketers around the world. Both the cricketers are known for giving nightmares to the opposition on their day by smashing the bowlers all around the ground.
However, former Pakistani cricketer Mohammad Amir, who is hailed as one best fast bowlers in the cricket fraternity, doesn’t harbor the same views.
Recently, the cricketer opened up on his rivalry with the Indian skipper Virat Kohli and also picked the ‘most difficult’ batsman he has bowled to. Well, speaking to Cricwick’s YouTube channel, named Steve Smith as the most difficult batsman to bowl against. He said:
“Steve Smith is the most difficult batsman to bowl against in this era because his technique is very different. His stance makes it difficult to bowl against him, he is good at leaving the ball outside off stump and is also strong off his pads,”
Further, during the interaction, Warner showered praises on Virat Kohli and said that the Indian skipper has proved himself in every format of the game. He said:
“Kohli has proved in all formats why he is known as King Kohli. He likes to revel in pressure situations, and I like bowling to him”
Speaking on bowling against Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli, Mohammed Amir said that he didn’t mind bowling to any of the two Indian batsmen however he mentioned that bowling to Virat was a bit tough for him as Rohit struggles against the moving delivery early in his innings. He said:
“I’ve never found it tough bowling to these two (Kohli and Rohit). I find it easy to bowl to Rohit, I think I can get him out with both variations. He struggles a bit against in-swing from left-arm bowlers and even with the ball going away from him, he finds it difficult to handle early on in his innings. “
“Bowling to Virat is a bit tough because he handles pressure situations well. He plays well in pressure matches,” Amir concluded
