Former Pakistan cricketer Shoaib Akhtar, who has been active on social media and YouTube for the last couple of years, took time out to indulge with his fans and answer their questions. He was asked to choose from a lot of different players and teams on different grounds and Akhtar revealed a lot of his choices.
Akhtar did a Q&A session on Twitter on Sunday, January 3. Among a lot of other questions, he was asked to pick the 'Best Test captain' among Indian captain Virat Kohli, England's Joe Root, and New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson.
Here is the question from a fan:
Akhtar decided to go with the in-form batsman and captain Kane Williamson. While a lot of fans agreed to Akhtar's choice based on current form and captaincy skills, a lot of fans of Virat Kohli and Joe Root weren't happy with the opinion of the Pakistan legend.
It did come as a surprise for Kohli fans, who are habituated to seeing Akhtar praise the Indian captain and asking Pakistan batsmen to learn from him.
Here is Shoaib Akhtar's reply to the question:

Williamson has kept his rich form going with another century against Pakistan in the ongoing second Test match at the Hagley Oval in Christchurch. He is currently unbeaten on 112 at stumps on Day 2 with New Zealand currently batting at 286/3, still trailing by 11 runs.
