When Indian skipper Virat Kohli had announced that he would give up his captaincy after the completion of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021, many felt sad with the decision. However, fans and many critics alike would love to see the man lift the trophy before his captaincy comes to an end.
Now as India is all set to start their campaign against Pakistan on October 24, former Pakistan batsman Younis Khan has opined that the Men in Blue should perform well for their captain.
Speaking with Uncut, the former Pakistan batter praised Kohli and even labelled him as a “role model” saying he changed the game for India.
“He has been amazing. As a player or as a role model, he has been terrific. He is one of them who has changed the game for his country. His whole nation is proud of him. It’s good luck for him for this upcoming T20 World Cup. And I hope that he plays really well. And team India should perform for him because as a captain this will be his last series in T20s.”
The 43-year-old also wants Kohli to leave captaincy on a high note and said, “I hope him and his nation perform well. And he should also leave his captaincy on a high note, just as I left it in 2009 with a World Cup victory”.
As for the comparisons between Babar Azam and Kohli, Yonis said, “Although it feels good, but we should not compare Virat Kohli and Babar Azam.”Internet Explorer Channel Network
