Rohit Sharma is not happy with Kapil Dev’s comments regarding Virat Kohli’s role in the T20I team
Nottingham [UK11 July (ANI): Following the continued decline of Virat Kohli’s poor form in the T20I final with England, Indian skipper Rohit Sharma expressed displeasure over the former captain Kapil Dev’s comments on the place of the star batter in the team. He said that he was viewing the match from outside and doesn’t know what’s happening inside.
Virat Kohli’s pathetic run of form continued during his T20I game against England in which he was able to score just 12 runs over the two innings he played.
“He watches the match from the outside but doesn’t know what’s taking place inside. We’ve got our own thought procedure. We create our team, and in the background is lots of thinking. We support the team and provide them with opportunities. These are things that are not things you learn from the outside. Therefore, what is happening outside isn’t crucial, but what’s going on inside is crucial to the players,” said the skipper in a press conference after the match speaking about Kapil Dev’s remarks about Kohli.
“If you speak about how a player performs, everyone experiences the ups and downs. The player’s performance doesn’t suffer. We should therefore keep these things in mind minds. If a player is performing great for a number of years If he has just because he has one or two bad games is not enough to mean that he is a bad player. We shouldn’t overlook the past performance of the player. All of us who are part of the team are aware of the importance to the players. They have the right to discuss the topic, but it doesn’t have any significance for us,” he added.
In the past, Kapil Dev had stated that If a spinner of Ravichandran Ashwin calibre could be removed from the Test team and vice versa, so too might Virat Kohli. Ashwin did not play in any single game during the recent Five-match test series with England.
“If the world’s No. 2-test bowler Ashwin is dropped from the Test team, and you are your no. 1 batter could also be dropped.” Kapil stated.
“If you find that he (Virat) isn’t doing well, it is not possible to keep these guys (youngsters such as Deepak Hooda) out. I would like to see an honest fight for selection. The youngsters must strive to be better than Kohli. However, Kohli must think “Yes, at one time I was a huge player, but I’m now required to be the no. one player once more’. This is a concern for the team but is not a problem,” Kapil Dev added.
On Suryakumar Yadav’s exploding 117 runs during the last T20I The captain Rohit called it one of the most impressive T20I innings he’s witnessed.
“When you’re trying to score an impressive total, you must come out and bat as that he did, it is a testament to the skill of the player. We were at three down, and wanted to see that partnership be as long as was possible. He did pretty much all right today. It was a bit disappointing that he wasn’t at the finish However, that does not take anything away from his win. It’s rare to see it often. We’ll take it in both hands as team. He is a hitter all over the field, which is an extremely rare attribute that batsmen can possess. It’s a positive indication that we have someone like him on the team,” he added.
He also said that winning an event in England will give the team confidence.
When asked about the possibility of trying different players during the match, Rohit said, “In Southampton there were some players absent. In the next game there were some who returned and later, others were absent. T20 World Cup is coming. We must rotate players and train them. In order to prepare them, we need the opportunity to allow them to discover their abilities. If you have the series on your hands with one game left this is the ideal opportunity to get a glimpse of the players. We have seen them in the IPL and they are well. However, pressure and game plan is different for international cricket.”
When it came to the game Suryakumar Yadav’s rousing century was not a success as India fell to a 17-run loss in the third T20I against England during the T20I’s third and last game game of the series on Trent Bridge in Nottingham on Sunday.
The game ended up being an unsatisfactory one for India. The top-order batsman was wiped out in the space of a few minutes. A massive 119-run partnership by the centurion Suryakumar Yadav (117*) and Shreyas Iyer (28) was followed by Shreyas Iyer (28) and gave India an opportunity to win the game. However, the English played the game to their advantage by making wickets in crucial moments and also denying Men in Blue a clean sweep. India is leading the match by a score of 2-1.
When batting first, a Half-century from Dawid Malan as well as a strong unbeaten score from Liam Livingstone helped England achieve a formidable 215/7 at the close of the 3rd and last T20I match against India playing in Trent Bridge in Nottingham on Sunday. It was an exciting occasion for England’s English line-up of batsmen, as they struck at first in this series, and scored an impressive score.
The knocks of Dawid Malan (77), Liam Livingstone (42) and Jason Roy (26) helped the hosts. Ravi Bishnoi and Harshal Patel were the top bowlers in India with two wickets each, and Avesh Khan as well as Umran Malik both took one wicket. (ANI)
