Virat Kohli is becoming the next Sachin Tendulkar - Shahid Afridi
Virat Kohli is becoming the next Sachin Tendulkar - Shahid Afridi

Pakistan crashed out of the ICC World T20 2016 after yet another defeat, this time against Australia at Mohali. Their campaign ended with just one solitary victory over Bangladesh in Kolkata. After the match was over, skipper Shahid Afridi interacted with the media and spoke about the game and his side’s performance.

But Afridi made an interesting point, as he drew comparisons between Virat Kohli, and all time batting great Sachin Tendulkar. “Virat Kohli is becoming like a wall in the Indian team. Earlier, it used to be Sachin Tendulkar who won matches for India and now it is Kohli who is playing that role,” Afridi said.

Afridi summed up the game’s performance by saying that his side was not good enough on the day. “Honestly, we were not good enough. We had problems in batting. Our bowlers were doing well but in the last four overs, we gave away 40 runs. That is not good bowling and we cannot do that against a team like Australia,” said a dejected Afridi.

“It all came together. We have not played to potential in the (first) two games. Today was quite a clinical performance. I hope we keep on playing like this, playing our best in the next three matches if we want to win the trophy,” he said. “I thought David Warner was hitting well. He needed to face more balls. Finchy (Aaron Finch) looked good for a start. Adam Zampa has bowled beautifully. He reads the batsmen well, and is really smart, which is great for Australia,” he added.
