During a chat with actor Aamir Khan, Virat had said, "In the recent times, Mohammad Amir of Pakistan". Virat Kohli is one of those players who had welcomed Amir in the worldwide arena after his spot-fixing conviction and ban.

The focus of media shifted towards Amir to know his reaction on the latest remarks from Kohli. Now, the Pakistani cricketer has responded to the Indian captain's praise:"The world knows Kohli is the best".

Unfortunately, only two out of the three batsmen can find a place at the top of the order in the Indian playing XI.

Amir, who is now on the sidelines with a shin injury, thanked Kohli for the praise that has come his way from the Indian skipper and is hopeful of getting more opportunities to bowl at the 28-year-old.

Mohammad Amir, who is now out of the ODI series against Sri Lanka due to a shin injury, said the Indian captain takes away the game if given a chance. You have to be on your "A" Game when you are facing him or he will strike. "He has the best strike rate and average while chasing so he is also the biggest challenge for bowlers around the world", he said before adding, "You become a better bowler when you bowl well against a batsman like Kohli". During this year's ICC Champions Trophy final in England, Amir dismissed Kohli as Pakistan won the title defeating India by 180 runs. Skipper Kohli, Kuldeep Yadav, Axar Patel and Hardik Pandya were pictured grinding it out under the watchful eyes of coach Ravi Shastri.Arjun was also present at the venue and he was pictured bowling to Kohli and other Indian batsmen in the nets.

Meanwhile, Amir has returned from the injury received during second Test against Sri Lanka for which he was dropped for the ODI series.
