Shahid Afridi wants Virat Kohli to follow MS Dhoni?s Footsteps

Posted by Atin Jain on December 5th, 2018

Test series between India and Australia is going to start from December 6 at Adelaide. Before the IND vs AUS test series, Team India had a 4-day practice match against Cricket Australia XI where the opener Prithvi Shaw who was going to open in the first test accidentally injured himself.

Skipper Virat Kohli and his men have all the hopes to win their first Test series in Australia. Former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi has an opinion that Virat Kohli to be recognized as a great captain needs to win a series abroad.

He has advised Kohli to follow his antecedent MS Dhoni's footsteps. Shahid Afridi gave an example of the great MS Dhoni and said, "As a captain, Virat needs to win a series abroad. I keep saying that how Dhoni has changed the course of Indian cricket as a captain and as a player, it's the perfect example for Virat to follow,".

Afridi said that Virat Kohli’s records speak for him and it shows what a player Virat is. The most impressive thing that Afridi noticed about Virat Kohli is that he takes the nets as a match and so whatever he does in the nets, he displays it in the match.

Afridi said that Virat Kohli takes the responsibility upon himself and it seems like he loves to face the challenges. Afridi said that if MS Dhoni is fit and willing to play then he should definitely be in the Indian squad for the World Cup.

On ongoing India vs Australia series, Afridi feels that India can win the series because Australia doesn't have the team that they used to have. Also, India has a superb batting line-up and they have improved their bowling as well, said Afridi.
