Referring to Kapil Dev, Vimal said, “Look, Kohli has done very well in the last few years. However, there comes a time in every player’s career. The form moves up and down. It may have come in a bad career, but that doesn’t mean a player should be left out of the team. Boys should be given a chance. We are doing the same. Let me tell you that Virat Kohli scored 11 runs in the third match, while in the second match he could score only 1 run.
What did Kapil say?
“If you can leave out the second best bowler in the Tests, Ravichandran Ashwin, then the world number one can also sit out,” said Kapil Dev. I want Kohli to make runs, but at the moment he is not playing the way we know him. He has made a name for himself based on his performance and if he does not perform then you cannot exclude new players.
Speaking of the match, Suryakumar Yadav put on a stellar performance in the third T20I against England at Trent Bridge on Sunday and scored 117 off 55 balls, despite the team losing by 17 runs. David Malan’s 77 and Liam Livingstone’s unbeaten 42 helped England reach 215/7. Suryakumar Yadav, on the other hand, fired shots around the field for India but due to lack of support from other batsmen, India were reduced to 198 for nine in 20 overs.
