  • Kohli has received support from many in the cricketing fraternity
  • Akmal backed the Indian star to return to form
  • Akmal urged Kohli to keep his focus intact

Pakistan’s veteran wicketkeeper Kamran Akmal has backed Virat Kohli to regain form, saying that the Indian star’s passion for the game makes him stand apart.

Kohli has been enduring a lean patch in international cricket and struggled during the recent tour of England. While many have criticized the former India captain, he has found support from the likes of Rohit Sharma, Shoaib Akthar and Saba Karim, among others. The latest to defend Kohli is Akmal.

Speaking to paktv.tv, the veteran wicketkeeper said that Kohli is a different player altogether and everyone endures such rough phases in their career.

“He’s a different player altogether. Everyone goes through these phases. Some players endure it for a brief period, some go through it for long,” said Akmal.

He further went on to slam Kohli’s critics saying that the star batter needs just one big innings to return to form. Akmal also said that the former India captain’s passion and belief makes him stand apart from the others.

“He only needs one big innings. His belief, his passion for the game, makes him stand apart. Do you think that a player who has 70 centuries will listen to those asking for his ouster from the side? People who have played 1-2 matches are now giving opinions on him. I can only laugh,” said Akmal.

The veteran wicketkeeper went on to say that Kohli will have to sort out the issues by himself and to keep his focus intact rather than listening to opinions of others.

“Footwork, bat swing, head position, shoulder.. everything comes into place. A player figures all these things out on his own. You have to keep your mind positive. Think about what you did right in your past. There will be a lot of opinions but you got to keep focus intact. A player is his own coach,” said Akmal.
