Indian skipper Virat Kohli has appreciated the effort put by Afghanistan team in the field. Congratulating the Afghan team on their success of the T20 tournament, the Indian skipper said, “I want to congratulate you on your T20 tournament and also wish you all the very best for the future and for the journey you’ve had in cricket so far. It’s been amazing to watch and I’ve been always following, to see what you guys have been doing.”
“I haven’t been to Afghanistan but I have heard a lot about it, your vision is very strong and I can see the passion, especially when I see the cricketers play,” he added.
“What I have learnt in my small journey so far is that self-belief and hard work will get you success for sure in whatever you do in life. There will always be some distractions but if you remain true to yourself, then success will come to you for sure. So whatever you do, do with full passion and work really hard towards it. That’s all I wanted to say and send across this message,” he said.
“Also, I want to say that create your own ideas, create your own identity. You always learn from people but never blindly follow anyone. You must always have your own character and have enough belief in that character,” Kohli added.
Earlier this year, Afghanistan had been granted Test status along with Ireland and is all set to appear in their first Test match in 2018 against Pakistan.
