Former Pakistan speedster Shoaib Akhtar has said that Virat Kohli was forced to leave the captaincy of India.

Speaking to reporters on the sideline of the Legends League Cricket in Muscat, Oman, Akhtar said, “Virat didn’t leave captaincy but was forced to do so. This is not the best of times for him but he needs to prove what he is made of. Is he made of steel or iron? He is a great guy and a cricketer. Do not try too many things, just go out there and play cricket. He is a great batsman and has achieved more than anyone else in the world. He just needs to go out there and play with his natural flow.”

“He plays a lot with his bottom hand and I think when the form is out, bottom hand players usually are the first ones to get in trouble. I think he’s gonna come out of this. He should move forward from this and not keep any bitterness against anyone. Just forgive everybody and keep moving,” he added.

Akhtar who is currently participating in the Legends League Cricket, backed Rohit Sharma to be the Indian team’s next Test captain.

“I think Rohit Sharma would be the right choice for the time being. It’s good if he doesn’t succumb to this pressure,” he added.
