Mohammad Aamer and Virat Kohli have had mutual admiration for each other. Kohli gifted a bat to Aamer during the India-Pakistan tie in Asia Cup 2016. Both have always spoken highly about each other. Kohli was one of the first players that welcomed Aamer back into international cricket after his spot-fixing ban.

Hence after Kohli s marriage with Anushka Sharma, Aamer went the extra yard ahead and wished his friend with wholeheartedness in a moving message.

Speaking to Khaleej Times, Aamer said: “I’m so happy for him. I also congratulated him and I wish him in his life’s new innings. Like he made a name for himself in cricket, I wish and pray to Allah that he is successful in his new life and Allah gives both of them a good life and all the happiness. I also pray Allah protects them from evil eyes. When a lot of eyes are on you, a lot of people’s evil eyes could be on you. But I pray that Allah helps them in this new journey.”

Apart from Aamer, other Pakistani players to wish Kohli were Shahid Afridi, Umar Akmal and Shoaib Akhtar.

Kohli is currently in Rome along with wife Anuskha on a honeymoon trip.
