Social media users believe that Amir meant more when he made the statement than just to express his congratulations to a fierce rival.
Instead, many have interpreted this as the former Pakistan fast bowler’s most recent jab at the team’s talisman. And captain Babar Azam, with whom he is rumoured to have a tense relationship.
Amir’s reactions after ejecting Babar from the recently finished Pakistan Super League (PSL). Along with a few errant remarks he made about not caring who he bowls too. This prompted him to wonder whether Babar and he hold the same opinions.
Fans have drawn attention to the fact that Amir is calling Kohli “the real king” in the current situation. King is the title given to both Kohli and Babar.
Amir had earlier said that bowling to Babar would be similar to bowling tailenders. Explaining how he doesn’t distinguish between the opponent. ” These kinds of competitions and player rivalries help players maintain their competitive edge”.
”These kinds of challenges help me stay focused, so I personally enjoy them. For me, facing Babar or a tailender batting at number 10 will be the same because my job is to take wickets and help my team win games”, Amir had previously stated.
Heinrich Klaasen’s masterful 104 off 51 balls helped SRH score 186/5, which is largely to his credit. Faf du Plessis and Virat Kohli ultimately crushed that target with a 172-run opening stand. This was Kohli’s sixth century overall and his first IPL century since 2019.
