While Afridi’s comment surprised all, ex-India cricketer Amit Mishra has taken a jibe at him. Taking a dig at Afridi, Mishra wrote on Twitter: “Dear Afridi, some people retire only once so please spare Virat Kohli from all this.”

However, it all started when Shahid Afridi said while speaking on Samaa TV earlier, “The way Virat has played, the start that he had to his career, there was struggle initially before he made a name for himself. He is a champion and I believe there comes a stage when you are headed towards retirement. But in that scenario, the aim should be to go out on a high.”

“It shouldn’t reach a stage where you are dropped from the team and instead when you are at your peak. It seldom happens though. Very few players, especially cricketers from Asia Cup make that decision, but I feel when Virat does it, he will do it style and probably in the same manner in which he started his career,” he further added.
