Recently, Pakistani ex-cricketer Shoaib Akhtar has shared his opinion over Virat Kohli quitting the captaincy. Shoaib Akhtar even blamed his marriage with Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma for affecting his career badly and stated Virat has to struggle now.

While talking to Dainik Jagran, Shoaib said he was never in favor of Virat’s captaincy and just wanted Virat to keep scoring 100-120 runs and keep the focus on his batting. Further, Shoaib Akhtar added he would not even marry when he was in his place. He had just scored runs and enjoyed cricket. According to Shoaib Akhtar, these 10-12 years of cricket are different time and does not come again. Getting married is not wrong but if you are playing for the country then you would have enjoyed a time a little. Also, fans are crazy about Virat Kohli, and he had to maintain that love he is getting for the last 20 years.

Shoaib Akhtar continued, “As the responsibility increases, so does the pressure. And cricketers have a short span of 14-15 years in which you stay at the peak for five-six years. Those years of Virat have passed, and now he has to struggle.”

Well, we wonder how many cricketers will agree with Shoaib Akhtar’s logic!!
