Know What Shoaib Akhtar Said On Virat Kohli’s Captaincy Controversy

New Delhi: Former Pakistan speedster Shoaib Akhtar said that Virat Kohli was forced to leave India captaincy.

Kohli had stepped down as India’s T20I captain and he was subsequently removed as the ODI skipper as the selectors wanted one skipper for the white-ball formats.

“Virat didn’t leave captaincy but was forced to do so. This is not the best of times for him but he needs to prove what he is made of. Is he made of steel or iron? He is a great guy and a cricketer. Do not try too many things, just go out there and play cricket. He is a great batsman and has achieved more than anyone else in the world. He just needs to go out there and play with his natural flow,” Shoaib Akhtar was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.

“He plays a lot with his bottom hand and I think when the form is out, bottom hand players usually are the first ones to get in trouble. I think he’s gonna come out of this. He should move forward from this and not keep any bitterness against anyone. Just forgive everybody and keep moving,” the former fast bowler added.
