Shahid Afridi, the former Pakistan captain, has praised Virat Kohli and has urged him to keep entertaining the fans across the world.

Kohli on Wednesday became the leading run-getter in T20Is as he led his team to a commanding seven-wicket win over South Africa in the second game of the three-match series in Mohali. The Indian captain scored an unbeaten 72 off just 52 balls, smashing four fours and three sixes during the course of his sensational knock.

‘Great player’

“Congratulations Virat Kohli. You are a great player indeed, wish you continued success, keep entertaining cricket fans all around the world,” Afridi tweeted.

 

Kohli now has 2,441 runs in T20Is while Rohit Sharma, with 2,434 runs, is second in the list. Kohli is the only batsman in the world to have a batting average of above 50 in all three formats of the game.
