You can't play on reputation even if you are Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma, said Kapil Dev.

You can’t play on reputation even if you are Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma, said Kapil Dev. The superstars of Indian cricket have been enduring the worst phase of their careers for a long time. While Virat hasn’t scored a hundred for three years, Rohit is battling poor form with the bat.

Former Indian captain and one of the greatest all-rounders, Kapil Dev, has questioned their presence in the Playing XI.

“Players like Virat and Rohit should enjoy the game. How they feel about their performances is very important.”

Kapil said it would be impossible for critics to remain silent if the Indian pair continues to fail.

“You must score runs as you can’t play based on reputation alone. The opportunities will dry up. How many chances would you need? Can’t understand why they were rested. If dropped, where they will get a chance to play then? It is quite difficult to see how they play now,” he added.

“They need to correct their thinking. If you are not scoring runs, there is a problem. Your performance should speak.”
