When Virat Kohli and Shoaib Malik had shared laughter after the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 final, it showed that the players don't carry the heat off the field. The picture of the players from both rival countries having a laugh was posted by ICC as well, captioning it as 'the spirit of the game'.
But what were they discussing? The Pakistan cricketer Malik shared it during a show. He said Virat asked him about the hilarious drop catch by Saeed Ajmal which happened during an ODI match between Pakistan and West Indies.
"We were playing the Champions Trophy final against India. Post the final, in the prize distribution, Yuvraj Singh, Virat Kohli, Azhar (bowling coach Azhar Mahmood) and myself were laughing. We all were discussing the same catch and laughing", he said.
Malik added, "That catch was Chris Gayle's. I asked Ajmal 'if you had positioned yourself to take the catch, why did you pull out at the last moment'? He told me that he waited crouched on the ground to take the catch just in case you (Shoaib Malik) drop it."
