‘If performance isn’t there, don’t expect..’: Kapil Dev assesses Virat Kohli’s dip in form

Kapil Dev has shed his feelings on former India skipper Virat Kohli’s century-less run in international cricket for the last three years. Kohli scored his 70th international century for India in 2019, and the entire cricketing world has been waiting for his 71st century ever since. Kohli will now be in action against England in the 5th Test match of last year’s series, beginning from July 1.
Meanwhile, speaking to Uncut, former India captain Kapil Dev said, ‘I haven’t played cricket as much as Virat Kohli. But sometimes you may not have played enough cricket but you can look to figure things out. Either that, or we just cannot criticise such great players. We have played cricket and we understand the game and after that, they have to improve their thought process, not ours’.

‘We just see one thing and that’s your performance’, says Kapil Dev

Kapil then went on to add that people will like it if Kohli proves everyone wrong, but will feel the same if doesn’t score runs. ‘If you prove us wrong, we will like it. If you don’t score runs, we feel there is some fault. We just see one thing and that’s your performance. And if the performance is not there, don’t expect people to stay quiet. Your bat and your performance should speak,’ the 63-year-old World Cup-winning captain said
