It’s not the first time that people who resemble Virat Kohli has surfaced on several platforms among fans or spectators in a stadium sporting the same look. But it’s quite shocking to see Pakistan opening batsman Ahmed Shahzad who often had been mistaken for Kohli with his batting style and looks similar to that of Kohli. The latest entry among the ones resembling Kohli is Pakistan’s newest batsman, Saud Shakeel.
The left-handed batsman playing in his second ODI against England in the second of the three-match series played a lone fighting hand of 56 runs but failed to help the visitors reach the target of 248 runs set by the hosts in a truncated 47-over an innings match.
During his 77-ball knock, the cameraman captured Shakeel many times in close-ups whether he was taking a guard at the crease or just coming from the drinks break with his helmet off. With his hairstyle, beard and similar face shape, the fans couldn’t help but notice the resemblance with the Indian skipper.
Many fans thought and commented rather sceptically that Virat Kohli had gone to Pakistan to complete his ever-elusive 71st international century, while some fans just got shocked to see the glaring similarities between them not only in their looks but also in batting styles.
