Former Pakistan pacer Shoaib Akhtar defended Indian captain Virat Kohli after he was recently criticised by former Australian wicketkeeper Ian Healy, who said he was losing respect for Kohli due to his constant sledging of the Australians in the ongoing four-match Test series. After India’s thrilling win over Steve Smith’s men in the second Test at Bengaluru, Kohli responded to Healy’s comment during the post-match press conference.
