Virat Kohli during Practice

Impressed with the consistent performance and attitude of the young and talented Indian batsmen Virat Kohli, former Pakistani skipper Wasim Akram feels that Virat Kohli can become a future captain of India if he continues to work hard.

Akram wrote in his column that ?Virat?s performances in ODIs have been really good, but now the time has come for graduation. To be a Sachin Tendulkar, a Rahul Dravid or a V.V.S. Laxman is what counts and Virat must have that in his mind all the time, If he works hard on all aspects of his game, he can be a future captain for India, I have no doubt about that. He seems to have all the makings of a leader?

He too added that Kohli needed to prove himself in Test cricket also, ?Virat is really talented. He now looks a supremely confident player. But there is more needed from him. I have long been saying that a batsman is complete only when he proves himself in Test cricket,? wrote the former Pakistani skipper in

Besides Virat Kohli, Akram also praised young off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin.

?Ashwin is pretty new to international cricket but he has made his mark in such a short time. What I like about like about him is his cool approach in tense situations. As a bowler he has a lot of variety. I see him doing well in the time to come,? he said.
