Shoaib said, ‘Virat Kohli has 70 international centuries in his name. How many people have so many centuries in the current era. How many series did he win in India? Should I not praise them after this? ‘ Shoaib further said, ‘This is quite strange. We can all clearly see that Virat is the biggest batsman in the world. He and Rohit Sharma always perform. Why should we not praise them? ‘
What did Shoaib Say on Pakistan’s Performance?
On Pakistan’s performance in England, Shoaib said the tour was tough for the team. Living in a bio bubble environment was a different challenge. The Pakistani fast bowler said that the team played just one session poorly and hence the Test series went out of his hands. At the same time, Hyder Ali, who batted brilliantly in the third T20, was described by Akhtar as an amazing talent. He also praised Mohammad Hafeez, who performed brilliantly at the age of 39.
Let us know that Shoaib is known for his impeccable opinion and he often keeps saying that there is no comparison between Babar Azam and Virat Kohli. Virat Kohli has achieved this stature for so many years and Babar Azam’s career has just started. It is wrong to compare Babur with Virat Kohli so soon, according to Shoaib Akhtar.
