Pakistan’s former cricketer Wasim Akram broke silence on Virat Kohli’s captaincy controversy and said that there was a clear case that no one would have judged Kohli he if would have chosen to get disheartened when sacked from the Indian captaincy.

But the former Indian skipper rose to glory and didn’t disappoint his fan and family. He chose to stay away from negativity and is now coming out to be the most consistent and dependable player like he was before his rough patch. The legendary Pakistan pacer said there was no drop in Kohli’s intensity.

For the unversed, just for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2020, Kohli had announced that he won’t be the captain in the the T20 format. Kohli wanted to step down as the T20 captain to shed some burden. But wanted to continue leading in ODI and Test.

But as several former cricketers like World Cup winning captain Kapil Dev, Sourav Ganguly (then BCCI President) also believed that split captaincy won’t work in India and hence he asked Kohli to step down as ODI captaincy also. But when Kohli refused to do so, the former skipper was sacked from the captaincy and Rohit Sharma was appointed as the new captain the white ball formats.

There was no proper farewell for Kohli as a captain. Moreover, removing him from the Indian captaincy over a tweet didn’t go well the fans as well and since then, Sourav Ganguly had been having a tough time as the BCCI president.

But now Pakistan former and current players are also applauding Kohli for his determination and positive approach. Wasim Akram said that in such a situation there was a Virat saying that he might now be the captain of India, or he got dropped as captain but he will play as a batter and will be the best fielder in Indian side.

IND vs NZ: Can Team India save the T20 series? Check venue, time, Live streaming details for 2nd T20I here

After losing the first T20, the Indian cricket team is trailing by 0-1 in the three-match T20 series against New Zealand. The decisive second T20 of the series will be played today in Lucknow. For Hardik Pandya, a lot of brainstorming will also have to be done to choose the playing 11 in this match.

Even after getting constant support, Shubman Gill has not been able to do any feat in T20 so far. While Arshdeep Singh has performed poorly since the T20 World Cup. In such a situation, some big steps can be taken by the captain and head coach Rahul Dravid in the second match.

Shubman Gill or Prithvi Shaw?

Hardik Pandya has made it clear that Shubman Gill is his priority right now before Shaw and the Mumbaikar will have to wait. But till when? India faced a similar problem with KL Rahul, whose decent strike rate in T20s put India’s T20 squad in danger. With his exclusion from the T20 squad, Team India is still facing a similar problem in the absence of KL Rahul.

The second dilemma is about Arshdeep Singh. Even though he is India’s best performing T20 bowler, he is also the worst performing bowler. Since the T20 World Cup 2022, he has given runs at an economy rate of 11.10. In such a situation, it will be interesting to see whether Mukesh will get a chance to debut in his place after Arshdeep’s poor performance in the the first T20 match.

The second match of the T20 series between India vs New Zealand will be played on 29 January. In this match, both the teams will clash at Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow.
