New Delhi: Former Pakistan skipper Wasim Akram feels the appointment of Virat Kohli as India's vice-captain for the Asia Cup will "hurt" senior players such as Virender Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir.
Kohli was on Wednesday named MS Dhoni's deputy for the upcoming Asia Cup to be held in Bangladesh and Akram feels seniors players won't be happy as they were eyeing captaincy.
"It is a tough job to be India's vice-captain. I feel senior players like Sehwag and Gambhir will not be happy with this. Kohli has showed his true potential on this Australian tour and emerged as a candidate for vice-captaincy.
