The captain of the Indian team, Rohit Sharma, is counted among the best cricketers in the world. But in season 15 of the Indian premiere, Rohit Sharma’s bat has failed miserably. In the 14 games played in the IPL, not a single half-century came off Rohit Sharma’s bat. Former India captain Kapil Dev has targeted Rohit Sharma. Kapil Dev believes that Rohit Sharma should have been part of the series played against South Africa.
The BCCI had rested veteran players such as Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and Jasprit Bumrah against South Africa. Questioning this, Kapil Dev said: “It’s hard to find out how the rest was delivered and who asked for the rest. Only the selectors know the answer to this.
Kapil Dev further said: “Rohit Sharma is a great player, there is no doubt about it. But he did not score a single fifty in 14 matches. Questions will still arise. Whether it is Bradman, Sachin or Virat Kohli. Rohit can answer whatever is happening. Is it for more cricket?
Kapil Dev thinks that Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli should enjoy their game. Kapil Dev has raised similar questions about Virat Kohli’s form in the past. Kapil Dev believes that no matter how great a player is, if he is going through poor form, questions will arise.
However, the India team will be hoping that Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli will return to form on the tour of England. The Indian team has to play a lot of big tournaments this year, so it is very important that these two players get back in shape.
