This former Pak captain makes a BIG statement on Kohli

New Delhi, Feb 10: This former Pakistani cricketer has made a statement on Indian skipper Virat Kohli. 

Yes this Pakistani cricketer is none other than but very popular Shahid Afridi. The Former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi believes Virat Kohli’s ‘controlled aggression’ has taken the Indian team to new heights.

“The way Virat Kohli is taking the Indian team ahead, he is doing a fantastic job,” Afridi said on the sidelines of the inaugural match of the St Moritz Ice Cricket tournament 2018 in Switzerland.

According to a report in "Geo News", The explosive all-rounder pointed out that there is no harm in adopting the policy of controlled aggression.

“Controlled aggression is always good. One should be aggressive, Virat has it in him. If you look at [MS] Dhoni then he is very cool-minded and relaxed. Everyone has their own nature. Virat has his own style to lead his team and controlled aggression is acceptable,” Afridi said.

“If you take everyone ahead together, if the captain supports the young players or those in troubled times, he also earns respect.”

Asked about his future in cricket, Afridi said his focus remains on playing T20 tournaments around the world.

“For me, I want to concentrate only on the [T20] leagues, wherever they are. Be it England, Australia or Bangladesh. But I also have a bigger cause, working with my foundation [Shahid Afridi Foundation].”

On the persisting tensions between India and Pakistan, Afridi said sportspersons serve as ambassadors of their countries.

“We [sportspersons] are ambassadors from our respective countries. We should look to do positive things. [Politicians should do what they are supposed to], but I think we can play a bigger role for both the countries.”

“I have always maintained that the better the relations are between India and Pakistan, ham bohot saare dushmano ke mooh par thappad marenge [we will deliver a blow to those who are against us],” he added.
