Updated Mar 19, 2016 04:45am

Pakistan cricket team arrived at The Eden Gardens in Kolkata on Friday to train ahead of their World T20 match against India. During the session, Indian batsman Virat Kohli presented Mohammad Amir with a cricket bat.

“I had asked him for a bat during the Asia Cup and Virat said he would give me one in India,” Amir was quoted as saying by Wisden India.

“I am glad he remembered that. He has fantastic bats, and I am confident I will be able to contribute with the bat too in time to come for Pakistan.”
