Pakistan's Rawalpindi Express, Shoaib Akhtar, recently talked about Virat Kohli and how his approach to cricket differs significantly from others. He believes that Kohli doesn't run away from pressure but seeks it as he flourishes in it.

Recently, India hoisted the national flag at Barbados after their T20 World Cup victory. This win was there mainly because of the brilliant bowling efforts from the Indian seamers and Virat Kohli's fighting 76 off 59 knocks, which came when wickets continued to tumble in the powerplay.

While appearing on a Pakistani show, Akhtar talked about why Kohli is a "superstar", and how there are two types of players.

"Virat Kohli looks for pressure situations to perform and become superstar...There are 2 types of batters one looks to perform in pressure situations if they succeed then money, Social media and fame everything is theirs and one scores their 40 and leaves the team in pressure," Shoaib Akhtar said.
