New Delhi: Former Pakistan skipper Wasim Akram has said in-form Virat Kohli should not be rushed into Indian captaincy but advised Mahendra Singh Dhoni to relieve himself of the burden of leading the side in at least one of the three formats.
"As far as blooding young Virat Kohli as a captain in smaller formats is concerned, I think that should just wait. The guy is in the form of his life. He has been India's most consistent batsman over the past 18 months or so," Akram said.
"Let him enjoy his game and not put any other responsibility on him at the moment. Kohli must not be burdened with team selection issues and other important decision making matters," he added.
