Veteran Pakistan wicketkeeper-batsman Kamran Akmal was asked to rate the best player out of India captain Virat Kohli, Australia batsman Steve Smith and England skipper Joe Root.
All three players have accomplished a lot in their careers thus far, but Akmal chose Kohli as the best of the three.
Akmal was made to choose between the trio during a question and answer session with fans on Twitter.

The 38-year-old has not played for Pakistan since April 2017, but has been doing extremely well on the domestic circuit.
Akmal had a highly successful campaign in the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy, where he was the second-highest run-scorer in the tournament with 906 runs in 11 matches for Central Punjab, which included three centuries and three fifties, at an average of 60.40.
Having played a pivotal role in leading Central Punjab to victory in the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy, Akmal is now preparing for the Pakistan Super League (PSL), where he will represent the Peshawar Zalmi.
In last year’s PSL, Akmal finished as the second-highest run-scorer in the competition after accumulating 357 runs in 13 games, which included three half-centuries, at an average of 27.46.
