Kohli was having a batting session during India's net practice at the Eden Gardens ground when Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi along with Amir went to greet him.
After a few handshakes, Kohli — otherwise known for his on field aggression — was seen presenting the left arm pacer with one of his precious willows.
Amir happily grabbed it and after a few words waved goodbye.
