And he is a brilliant batsman when it comes to playing against Pakistan. He takes full responsibility and is a chase master," Kaif asserted, emphasizing Kohli's unwavering commitment to his team's success.

Furthermore, Kaif linked Kohli's stellar performance in the T20 World Cup to his earlier achievements in the Asia Cup 2022. "The form that he had in that World Cup was because of his performances in the Asia Cup (2022), starting from that century he hit against Afghanistan," Kaif added, highlighting how Kohli's consistent excellence had been building up over time.

One crucial aspect that could tilt the balance in Kohli's favour is his familiarity with the Pakistani bowlers. Having faced them in the last T20 World Cup match, Kohli is likely to possess valuable insights into their bowling strategies. 

Kaif noted, "The fact that he has played the Pakistani bowlers in their last match at the T20 World Cup, he will know how every Pakistani bowler bowls, whether it is Naseem Shah, Shaheen Shah Afridi, or Haris Rauf," pointing out that this familiarity could give Kohli an edge in the forthcoming encounters.

Looking back to recent history, the narrative has not always been favourable for India against Pakistan. Prior to the 2022 T20 World Cup, India had faced a humbling defeat at the hands of Pakistan, suffering a comprehensive 10-wicket loss during the 2021 edition of the competition in the UAE. 

However, with Kohli's current form and his historical dominance against Pakistan, the scales seem to be tilting in India's favour.

As cricket enthusiasts worldwide gear up for the clashes that are poised to evoke unparalleled excitement, all eyes will undoubtedly be on Kohli to see if he can live up to the expectations and continue his legacy of excellence against Pakistan. The stage is set, the players are ready, and the fans await what promises to be a cricketing spectacle for the ages.
