ENG VS IND: ‘He Is Watching The Game From Outside’: Rohit Sharma’s Stern Response To Kapil Dev

Before Suryakumar took over at Trent Bridge, India was in trouble at 31-3 after the former captain was bowled out for just 11. When he hit a straight six from David Willey for a four, Kohli appeared to be his old flamboyant self. But as he attempted to blast a third straight boundary, he was caught at cover.

He has only scored 12 runs in two innings, and the Twenty20 team is calling for him to be fired. However, the team’s current captain Rohit Sharma has defended Kohli. Claiming that when giving players opportunities, the squad goes through a “thinking process.” It was a response to what Kapil Dev had said about Kohli.

ENG VS IND: “We Have Our Thought Process”: Rohit Sharma

The former player had stated that Kohli must improve and that if Ravichandran Ashwin, the spinner, could be dropped from the Test squad, then even Virat might be dropped from the Twenty20 team. Despite Kohli’s unimpressive performance in international cricket, Rohit disagreed with Kapil Dev’s remarks and claimed he only observed the match from the outside and had no idea what was happening inside.

“He is watching the game from outside and does not know what is happening inside. We have our thought process. We build our team and behind this, there is a lot of thinking. So, whatever is happening outside is not important but what is happening inside is more important for us. If you talk about form then everyone goes through ups and downs. When a player is doing well for so many years, then one or two bad series does not make him a bad player.”
