Virat Kohli’s small gesture towards Babar Azam has made the cricketing world realize that Cricket indeed is the Gentlemen’s game. It was after one of the fiercest rivalries in cricket got over, the captain of the two teams, India and Pakistan were seen shaking hands and exchanging words which have moved the world a lot. There is a lot of passion, aggression, and emotions involved in the game between India and Pakistan considering the cagy past the two teams share, both historically and geographically. This has been the story for a long time, but in recent times the rivalry has intensified even more because both teams only get to faceoff at ICC events. But these players showed that beyond the results, every player celebrates “The Spirit of Cricket” more than anything.
Really loved the scenes at the end between Virat and Rizwan and Babar and thereafter between some of the younger Pakistan players and Dhoni. Beyond the hype and posturing, this is the true story of sport.

Even though India lost to their arch-rivals, the moment the last ball was bowled and the winner was announced, Kohli and his squad did not condescend to their opposition. Instead, leading from the front Kohli congratulated Babar and Rizwan, later even MS Dhoni was seen conversing with the young Pakistani players. No matter who the winner of the match was, but these images of players coming together won the heart of the internet.
