Lahore: Virat Kohli shocked one and all with his call to quit Test captaincy on Saturday following the series loss against South Africa a day earlier. While it broke million hearts across the world, fans wished Kohli all the luck as he headed forward.

Fast bowler Mohammed Amir was among the first to praise the ex-India captain. “@imVkohli brother for me u are a true leader of upcoming generation in cricket because u are inspiration for young Cricketers. keep rocking on and of the field,” he tweeted.
