India and Pakistan are considered to be arch-rivals on the cricket field but for quite some time now, we are getting to see that the players of both the nations behave in a very friendly manner and the camaraderie that they share is unprecedented.
Virat Kohli is certainly one of the greatest cricketers of all times and he is admired by many opposition players as well including Pakistani cricketers. On many occasions, current Pakistani players have praised Virat Kohli and the former Indian skipper has also been quite generous when it comes to praising his Pakistani counterparts. In the Super Four clash which was played yesterday at R Premadasa International Cricket Stadium, Colombo, the spectators witnessed great camaraderie between Virat Kohli and Pakistani cricketer Shadab Khan but it went to such an extent that many felt it was cringe and this gave an opportunity to creative memers to show their creativity and sense of humour.
Virat Kohli-Shadab Khan memes made the day of those who were left upset after rain spoiled the match, here are some selected ones:

As far as the match is concerned, after winning the toss, Pakistan decided to bowl first. The Indians started pretty well as openers Rohit Sharma (56 runs, 49 balls, 6 fours & 4 sixes) and Shubman Gill (58 runs, 52 balls, 10 fours) played brilliant knocks and provided a solid platform to their team by producing a partnership of 121 runs for the first wicket. The match was stopped in the 24th over due to rains; at that time, India’s score was 147/2 with Virat Kohli and KL Rahul at the crease.
As a reserve day was kept for this match, the match started today from where it stopped yesterday and by the time this article was written, India had scored 243/2 in 39 overs with Virat Kohli playing at 50 runs* (55 balls, 4 fours) and KL Rahul playing at 71 runs* (78 balls, 7 fours & 2 sixes).
As per many experts, there are good chances that the match will get washed out but fans of both the countries are keeping their fingers crossed so that they get to see some good cricket from both the teams.
