I am Bothered- Kapil Dev on Virat Kohli’s Lean Performance Patch

Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma, both former and present captains of the Indian team, will play in the recontinued test match from the previous year in England.

The A-list players haven’t performed their best in the past couple of months. Kohli failed to lead the Indian team during the ICC T20I World Cup last year, and Sharma couldn’t score a single half-century for his IPL team Mumbai Indians in sixteen games played. They are playing a warm-up match against the Leicestershire club ahead of their match against England on 1st July.

1983 World Cup Winning Captain Kapil Dev showed his disappointment towards both the skippers during an interview for the Uncut Youtube channel. The anchor expressed that people told him not to analyze as he hasn’t played as much cricket as Kohli. Dev replied, “Even I haven’t played cricket as much as Virat Kohli. Then we cannot criticize these players ever because we haven’t played that much cricket. That is wrong. We have played cricket, and we understand the game. And after understanding the game I feel, somewhere or the other, they need to correct their own thought process, not ours.”

He was asked about Virat’s century drought, to which he said, “I am also asking the same thing: Such a big player and such a big gap. I am also bothered with it because he is like a hero to us. We used to think that we can never find a player to compared to Rahul Dravid, Sunil Gavaskar, Virender Sehwag. But Kohli forced us to compare him with them. But last two years he has not done so. Hence, I am bothered. I think mentally he needs to improve his cricket.”

Kapil Dev also expressed himself about the present captain Rohit Sharma “The player is brilliant. But if you don’t score a fifty in 14 matches, there will be question marks. Be it Gary Sobers, or Don Bradman, or Sachin, or Virat Kohli or Vivian Richards, or Sunil Gavaskar. If a big player like him doesn’t score runs in so many matches there will be question marks. Only Rohit Sharma can answer what is happening with him. Players like him and Virat Kohli should enjoy the game.”
