According to former Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar, Indian skipper Virat Kohli was forced to step down.

Following the completion of the International Cricket Council (ICC) Men’s T20 World Cup 2021, Kohli announced last year that he would step down as India’s T20I captain.

He was therefore removed from his ODI captaincy, which was taken up by Rohit Sharma. Kohli said this week that after seven years as captain of the Test team, he will be stepping down.

“Virat didn’t want to quit captaincy, but he was forced to.” He is in a difficult situation, but he must show what he is capable of. Is he made of iron or steel? Shoaib Akhtar described him as “a nice guy and a cricketer.”

“Don’t attempt too many different things; just go out and play cricket.” He is an outstanding batsman who has accomplished more than anyone else on the planet. All he has to do now is get out there and go with his natural flow.

“He uses his bottom hand a lot, and I believe that when the form is out, bottom hand players are the first to come into difficulties.”

I believe he will survive this ordeal. He should move on from this and not harbor any resentment toward anyone. Simply forgive everyone and move on.”

When it comes to selecting India’s next Test captain, Akhtar believes the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) will make the right decision.

“I’m confident BCCI will make an informed conclusion on this,” he added.
