Kohli was unlucky, says Shoaib Akhtar after India’s semi-final exit
Former Pakistan speedster Shoaib Akhtar has termed Indian skipper Virat Kohli’s dismissal an ‘unlucky’ after the Indian batting legend was given lbw in the semi-final against New Zealand on Wednesday.
Shoaib Akhter said in a video message: “It was a poor batting performance by the top five players, but I think Virat Kohli was unlucky as it was a poor decision to give him out. The ball was just clipping the bails and he was given out by the on-field umpire.”
However, the former pacer also praised the fightback from MS Dhoni and Ravinder Jadeja.
