New Delhi, Veteran Indian cricketer Virat Kohli has not been in form for some time. Virat has not scored a century since 2014 and his fans are constantly waiting for a good innings. However, due to his poor form, questions are also being raised about his selection in the team. Now, India’s veteran all-rounder Kapil Dev has also questioned Virat Kohli.
Former India captain Kapil Dev believes that if a talented bowler like Ravichandran Ashwin is dropped from the Test team’s final over, then Virat Kohli, who has been battling the rhythm for a long time, should not be left out of the T20 squad.
Kohli could not play a big innings for almost three years. The player, who is India’s first-ever World Cup champion, believes that if the Indian team management does not give the players, who are in a great rhythm, ample opportunity to showcase their skills, they will be treated unfairly.
“If you can get Ashwin, the second best bowler in Tests, out of the team, you can also get the world number one out,” Kapil said. “I want Kohli to make runs but right now Virat Kohli is not playing the way we want him to,” Kapil said. He has made a name for himself with his performances and you can’t keep a new player out if he doesn’t perform.
Kapil Dev said that taking Virat ‘rest’ from the West Indies tour is considered to be ‘out’ of his team. “You can call him a break or leave the team if you want,” he said. Everyone can have their own idea on it. If the selectors do not make their choice, it may be because the big players are not performing. SS1MS
