Aasif Sheikh shares hilarious interaction with Virat Kohli. India won the match by a margin of ten wickets.
Nepal got a fantastic opportunity to play India in the upcoming Asia Cup 2023. Despite failing to qualify for the Super Fours, the Rohit Paudel-led side had many memorable moments. One such instance occurred during their play against India. Aasif Sheikh, the opener, played some amazing cricket and hit a half-century against a top bowling side like India, which he will remember for a long time.
Meanwhile, star cricketer Virat Kohli fumbled a catch in the second over of the contest. Giving him an extra chance to bat and eventually reach a half-century. Meanwhile, following the match, a few Nepal cricketers were awarded medals, including Aasif, to whom Kohli presented the medal.
Aasif described the situation, saying that Kohli even joked that he deserved a medal for dropping his catch.
“Virat Kohli jokingly told me, ‘I should get a medal too, I dropped your catch,” Aasif said.
When it came to the game, the Men in Blue easily defeated their opponents. Both openers Shubman Gill and Rohit Sharma batted brilliantly, and as a result, they won by 10 wickets and qualified for the Super Fours. With the bowling, Ravindra Jadeja and Mohammed Siraj each took three wickets to limit Nepal to 230 runs.
On the other hand, India will play Pakistan again on September 10 in Colombo. Their first match was canceled due to weather, but the second match is crucial because it is a Super Four contest. Meanwhile, KL Rahul is set to return in the next game, and it would be interesting to watch who he replaces, considering Ishan Kishan is in fantastic form right now.
Jasprit Bumrah will also make a comeback. He missed the match against Nepal owing to the birth of his baby, but he will play the next match against archrivals Pakistan.
