Shahid Afridi Weighs In On Rohit Sharmas Appointment As India T20I Captain, Makes Big Statement About Virat Kohli

The former Pakistan skipper Shahid Afridi praised BCCI's decision and feels that Rohit's mentality makes him an "outstanding player" and also added that the swashbuckling batsman "stays relaxed where required and shows aggression when needed to as well".

 "As far as Rohit is concerned, this was on the cards. I have played with him for a year (at Deccan Chargers). He is an outstanding player with a terrific shot selection. He stays relaxed where required and shows aggression when needed to as well. We will see both sides."

"As I said, this captaincy move was bound to happen. He should definitely be given a chance", he further added.

Meanwhile, Afridi also feels that, "I think Virat should take the decision to continue as only a player. There will be relatively less pressure, he has played plenty of cricket too. He will enjoy his cricket and batting because captaining a team is not easy, especially in countries like India and Pakistan. As long as you are captaining well, things go smooth", he stated.

Virat Kohli is India's most successful captain in Test cricket and also enjoys one of the best win percentages in one-day internationals among all international captains.
