Coronavirus pandemic may have temporarily stalled cricketing events across the world but that hasn't stopped cricketers from trying new things in self-isolation.
Amir, who is currently watching Turkish TV series Diriliş: Ertuğrul recently spotted Indian skipper Virat Kohli's doppelganger in one of its episodes and took to Twitter to share his amusement.
The show's actor Cavit Çetin Güner has an uncanny resemblance to Kohli, believed Amir.

Needless to say, fans from both sides of the border shared the same excitement as Amir.

Notably, Amir isn't the only Pakistani cricketer who is hooked to the Turkish show.
In fact, Pakistan's Prime Minister Imran Khan and former cricketer has batted for the show during its PTV telecast in the country.
Khan noted that the series which had a run from 2014-19, imparted "Islamic values" -- something that was amiss in Hollywood and Bollywood movies alike and urged his countrymen to watch it.

The popular show chronicles the heroic story of Ertugrul Ghazi, the father of Osman (Uthman) who founded the Ottoman Empire. Does the actor really look like Indian captain Virat Kohli? These photos of Cavit Çetin Güner may help you decide.
