Former Pakistan captain Shahid Afridi is impressed by India’s captain Virat Kohli’s batting against South Africa in the 2nd T20I at Mohali. Kohli’s 72-run innings led India to a 7-wicket victory.
Kohli made 72 off just 52 balls as India chased the target of 150 in 19 overs in Chandigarh to lead the three-match series 1-0 after the opening game at Dharamsala was washed out.
Impressed by Kohli’s efforts, Afridi has called the Indian captain ‘a great’ and wished him success for future. He tweeted: “Congratulations Kohli! You are a great player indeed, wish you continued success, keep entertaining cricket fans all around the world.”
Afridi also replied to ICC’s congratulatory tweet for Virat Kohli in which the parent body of cricket has acknowledged the Indian captain on achieving the feat of averaging 50+ in the all three formats for the second time in his career.
