Former India skipper and one of the greatest all-rounders, Kapil Dev, has backed out of form Virat Kohli. The current India skipper is facing flak for his poor display with the bat.
According to Kapil, Virat has scored a lot of runs in the past and if he was not good, the right-handed batsman wouldn’t have scored so many runs in international cricket.
“For all these years, when he was scoring runs, no one said anything about captaincy affecting Virat’s batting and now suddenly, there are opinions when there’s been a little up and down in his graph. When he scored those double centuries and so many hundreds, wasn’t there pressure then? It means that his captaincy should not be the focus. Instead, look at his ability,” Kapil said on the show Uncut.
Kapil feels that once Virat gets going, he will score big again.
“The graph has surely gone up and down but for how long? Age 28 to 32 is the time when you really blossom. He is now experienced and mature. If he returns to his old form, Virat will not only score a century or double ton; he will give you 300. He is so much mature now and there is no shortage of fitness when it comes to Kohli. He just needs to identify himself and look to score big,” Kapil added.
