But speaking to CNN recently, Kohli surprised one and all when he was asked whether he feared any bowler.

The Delhi-lad gave an interesting reply to this question by naming not an active bowler but said he would have feared batting against Pakistan's legendary seamer Wasim Akram.

"The bowler I most fear, or I would have feared if I had played (against him) would be Wasim Akram; fast and skillful," said Virat.

Interestingly, even Wasim Akram, who picked 502 ODI and 414 Test wickets in his career, felt he would have found it hard to bowl against India's Test skipper.

During ICC World T20, Akram told India Today, "Kohli is the best batsman in the world. There comes a time in a batsman's life, where you learn how to score runs. He plays with authority in all three formats. It's difficult to bowl at him. I would have found it very difficult to bowl at him,"
