Shahid Afridi Advised Virat Kohli To Take Retirement
It is in the habit of some formal Pakistani players to say something nonsense about India and Indian cricket. Moh. Amir, Abdul Razzak, Shahid Afridi, etc. are those who always say something controversial about Indian cricket.
This time unwanted statement came from formal Pakistani pacer Shoaib Akhtar. Former Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar has also predicted the retirement of Virat Kohli, following the advice of former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi for retirement.
Afridi advised retirement
A few days ago, 42-year-old former Pakistani all-rounder, Shahid Afridi had advised Virat Kohli to take retirement. He had to face criticism for this.
The way Virat has played, the beginning of his career. He has struggled a lot in the beginning to make his name. He is a champion and I believe there comes a stage when you start moving towards retirement. If retirement is to be taken, it should be taken when you are at the height of your career.
Retirement should not be taken at that stage. Where you are dropped from the team, but when you are at the peak of your career. However, this rarely happens. Very few players, especially players from Asia, take such a decision. I think when Virat retires, he will take it in his own style. There is a possibility that he will take retirement in the same way as he started his career.
Amit Mishra replied
On this, Indian spinner Amit Mishra wrote in a social post ‘Dear Afridi, some people take retirement only once in their career. So spare Virat Kohli. Afridi has returned from retirement many times.
Virat returns to form from Asia Cup
Virat has returned to form after almost three years. He scored a century in the match against Afghanistan in the Asia Cup. It was his 71st century. Virat scored 122 against Afghanistan at a strike rate of 200. A century came from his bat after 1020 days. Significantly, this was Virat’s first century in the T20 format.
