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.

It was learnt that during the recent Asia Cup in Bangladesh, Kohli had promised Amir that he would gift him one of his bats.
