“Shakib is a very experienced cricketer. Over the years, I’ve played so much against him. Shakib’s change of pace and the way he bowls with the new ball always deceive the batters,” Kohli said in an interview with Star Sports.
“He’s also an economical bowler, again you need to be on top of your game when you are against such quality spinners,” he added.
