Revealed: What Shaheen Afridi told Virat Kohli has fans going crazy
In training mode, Virat Kohli shared a lighter moment with injured Shaheen Afridi before the Asia Cup clash versus Pakistan.
A clip posted over Twitter by Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is warming hearts across the border ahead of the much-awaited Indo-Pak clash for Asia Cup on Sunday (August 28).
In the clip, cricketers from both countries are seen greeting each other with a smile and wishing their opponents well before they step on the field for the high-voltage clash in Dubai.
The most notable feature of the clip posted on Thursday (August 25) was Pakistan speedster Shaheen Afridi sharing a lighter moment with India's batting great Virat Kohli.
Afridi, ruled out of the tournament with a knee injury, is in Dubai to undergo rehab for the same. But he made a point to greet Kohli and shake hands with him, while the former India skipper was going back to the dressing room after completing his practise session and spotted the left-arm quick.
But fans were left curious as to what was said between the two individuals since the music playing at the back inside the PCB feature clip was too loud and it couldn't be clear what exactly Shaheen was telling Virat Kohli in that moment.
What did Shaheen Afridi tell Virat Kohli?
In a different clip posted on Twitter by the Pakistan board, one can hear the back and forth between Shaheen and Kohli without the music at the back.
The clip revealed how Shaheen innocently told Kohli that his fans in Pakistan have been praying for his bumper return to form with the bat.
The conversation started with Kohli initially enquiring about Shaheen's knee injury and the gear he was wearing to protect his leg, before transitioning to Shaheen talking of the modern-day legend's slump over the past few seasons.

Shaheen told Kohli: "aapke liye dua kar rahe hain aapki form wapas ajaye (we've been praying for you, wish that your form quickly returns to normal)."
The Shaheen-Kohli dual would've been most the exciting feature of the India-Pakistan clash in Dubai if not for the former's untimely injury. Shaheen got Kohli out the last time the two countries met a year before at the T20 World Cup.
