Shoaib Akhtar: India Brought Virat Kohli As Their Captain, Whereas Pakistan Made Average people On the Top

Shoaib Akhtar, Pakistan’s fictitious fast bowler who created an era of leg-break bowling, endorsed Indian caption and skipper Virat Kohli. Shoaib did this while criticizing Pakistan’s decisions over choosing their team captain. 

What Was the Exact Scenario? 

Shoaib said, delightfully India has got Virat Kohli directing the team with great records and overseas experience. On the other hand, Pakistan has average cricket at the top of the table. 

Akhtar, while asked on Cricket Pakistan, a Youtube show, said that their mindset was made in such a way that they prefer enticing average people on the top of the table.

His voice completely emphasizes what’s going in his mind, he said, Pakistan appointed average people to lead their team as captain. If we on the other hand look at what India brought – they made Virat Kohli the man with a class as their captain, a player with aggression. And “Whom Did We Bring?”

However, after this statement, the former pacer has received massive flak from many Pakistan cricket fans for his fondness of India’s accomplishments. Moreover, skipper Virat Kohli in particular.

What Made Shoaib Angry?

He said, it’s not getting clear why people are irate on him, according to him, they should look at the stats first before criticizing him for what he said. 

He added by saying that asked if people want to keep the animosity in their mind, and all this because Virat is an Indian, we should not endorse him.

How Shoaib Akhtar Compared Pakistan?

Akhtar also indicated about Pakistan’s success journey during the 90s. He said people don’t know there was a time when Indians wished to be like the Pakistan team that was composed of some great names in every aspect of the game. 

Things changed with time and now, the Pakistan team wants to be like India. In the late 90s, there was a time when India would lift their hands that they don’t want to play against Pakistan in Sharjah.

Shoaib on being a part of the Selection Committee for Pakistan

Shoaib denied of any possibilities of being asked to be a part of the selection committee, however, he certainly acknowledged that anyone being a chief selector has been in sync with the head coach for the team to improve their stats and performance which would be helpful in bringing glory to the country.
