Former Indian spinner Amit Mishra replied to Shahid Afridi’s retirement advice to Virat Kohli. Kohli recently made his 71st century in the final game of India in Asia Cup. He scored 122 runs against Afghanistan and achieved his first-ever century in a T20 International. Shahid Afridi, a former Pakistani player, commented on Kohli’s performance and advised him to retire on the high.

Amit Mishra reacted to Shahid Afridi’s words on Virat Kohli and gave a savage reply about it. “Dear Afridi, some people retire only once so please spare Virat Kohli from all this.”

Afridi earlier talked about Kohli on Samaa TV. “The way Virat has played, the start that he had to his career, he had overcome struggles and worked hard before he made a name for himself. He is a champion and I believe there comes a stage when you are headed towards retirement. At such a stage, the aim should be to go out on a high,”

“It shouldn’t reach a stage where you are dropped from the team. Instead, retirement should be announced when you are at your peak. It seldom happens though. Very few players, especially cricketers from the Asian region make that decision, but I feel when Virat does it, he will do it in a good way and probably end his career in a style much like the way he began his career.”

Kohli was the best performer in the Asia Cup. It was long awaited by the cricket fans as he made a century after nearly three years. He also made a couple of half-centuries in the tournament. It is safe to say that the bad spell of Virat Kohli has officially ended.
