Indian star batter Virat Kohli has returned to form with his 71st international century and two half-centuries in the just completed Asia Cup 2022. However, former Pakistan cricketer Shahid Afridi suggested Kohli to retire from the international cricket on a high note, which has irked Indian fans and former players.

Recently, former Indian leg-spinner Amit Mishra expressed his disregard with the former Pakistan skipper Afridi on Tuesday following his unpleasant remark on the 33-year-old Kohli.

"He (Virat Kohli) is a champion and I believe there comes a stage when you are headed towards retirement. But in that scenario, the aim should be to go out on a high.  It shouldn't reach a stage where you are dropped from the team and instead when you are at your peak ,"  Shahid Afridi said earlier. 

In a response, Amit Mishra took to Twitter and mocked the former all-rounder, "Dear Afridi, some people retire only once so please spare Virat Kohli from all this. 🙏🏽"

With his reply, Amit Mishra prompted towards Shahid Afridi's multiple decisions to take retirement before renouncing them.

In the Asia Cup, Virat Kohli amassed 276 runs in five matches at an average of 92 and strike rate of 147.59. He was the second-highest run-scorer, behind Pakistan's Mohammad Rizwan, who played a game more than the Indian star.
