After returning home from the first round of T20 World Cup, Virat Kohli has resigned as the captain of the team. Rohit Sharma will now captain India in the T20 format.
Former Pakistan captain Sahid Afridi has said that Kohli should step down as captain in all formats. Speaking to a Pakistani TV channel, Afridi said the BCCI’s decision to appoint Rohit as T20 captain was a good one. “Kohli is a good batsman. He is a good force for India, but to do better for the country, he has to give up the role of captain in all formats, “said Afridi.
Afridi said that Rohit has a lot of confidence. “She can relax when she needs to and she can be aggressive when she needs to.” Rohit has the mental qualities that a captain should have. ‘
In the opening season of IPL, Afridi played with Rohit in Deccan Chargers. “He is a top level player. He has a good selection of shots and has the mentality and skill to lead the players, “said Afridi.
Afridi said he had already expected Kohli to step down as T20 captain. “Leaving the captaincy in all formats, Kohli should focus on batting. He should take advantage of his potential, he is very good, ‘said Afridi. He should play freely and enjoy his game without any other pressure on his mind. ‘
