Virat Kohli is getting a lot of backing from former cricketers after his poor performance in 2022. One more name is added in this list, former pace sensation of Pakistan Shoaib Akhtar has come in the support of Virat Kohli.
Few days ago, WC winning allrounder Kapil dev criticized Virat Kohli for his mediocre form and said if Ashwin can be dropped from the test team then why can’t Kohli be dropped from white ball squad ahead of T20 World Cup. But Shoaib Akhtar lashed out at Kapil Dev for his statement and backed Virat Kohli.
Shoaib Akhtar on his YouTube channel said that he respects Kapil Dev’s opinion. Every person has their own views. Akhtar added that He said, ‘As a Pakistani, why am I supporting Kohli? He supports kohli because he has slammed 70 centuries for India. Those 70 centuries are not scored while playing ‘Khala Ke Aangan’ or Candy Crush.
Akhtar added that he laughs when he hears about Kohli being dropped from the team. Kohli was the best batsman in last decade. He should forget about captaincy and focus more on his batting.
Virat Kohli has not contributed enough in the ongoing England tour. He failed in the 5th test, couldn’t perform well in last 2 T20 matches and even in the ODI series, he is looking out of touch. His form is very necessary for India ahead of the upcoming T20 World Cup in Australia.
