Shoaib akhtar defends virat kohli

Former Pakistan cricketer Shoaib Akhtar came forward to defend Indian captain Virat Kohli after he was criticised by former Australian wicketkeeper Ian Healy, who said he was losing respect for Virat Kohli due to his constant sledging of the Australians in the ongoing four-match Test series in India.

“The pressure is starting to tell on (Kohli). I’m losing respect for him. He’s got to be a lot more respectful of his opponents. The stuff he did with Steve Smith was unacceptable,” Healy told Melbourne radio station SEN.

After India’s thrilling win over Steve Smith’s men in the second Test at Bengaluru, Kohli responded to Healy’s comments during the post-match press conference.

“We have 1.2 billion people in India and one person doesn’t make a difference,” said Kohli after India’s 75-run win.

“And also I think you should go and search on YouTube when he was given out in Centurion down the leg side. I heard he said something about me not having good behavior with the umpires. I think you all should YouTube that video,” added Kohli.

Virat Kohli, got support from Pakistan speedster Shoaib Akhtar for Healy’s comments, who reminded that Ian’s comments are nothing but self-goal.

The third India vs Australia Test will be played in Ranchi, starting on March 16.
