Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli and Pakistan speedster Mohammed Amir have been involved in several memorable encounters on the pitch. The stylish right-hander has come out on top most occasions but the left-arm pacer won their last battle convincingly in the Champions Trophy final. "I am very happy to see Amir back in action. He understood his mistake and has corrected himself and came back. He has always been an outstanding bowler," Virat had said ahead of the Asia Cup last year. The 28-year-old even gifted Amir a bat ahead of the India-Pakistan contest in the World T20 in 2016.

Amir (6-2-16-3) tormented the Indian batsmen in the Champions Trophy final with a devastating first spell to help bundle out the Men in Blue for 158 in only 30.3 overs. Rohit Sharma (0), Shikhar Dhawan (21) and Kohli (5) were snuffed out by Amir in a breathtaking display of fast bowling.

It is no secret that both cricketers respect and admire the craft of one another. An example of this was witnessed when the Pakistani interacted with fans during a chat on Twitter.

Amir responded to a question on the world's best batsman with Kohli's name.

Amir picked Kohli over England's Joe Root, Australia's Steve Smith and New Zealand's Kane Williamson.
