Legendry Indian cricketer Kapil Dev made a blistering attack on Team India skipper Rohit Sharma and star batsman Virat Kohli for not playing in domestic cricket.

The former World Cup winning captain believes that Rohit and Kohli should regularly ply their trade on the domestic circuit.

“Domestic cricket is most important. How many domestic matches has Virat Kohli or Rohit Sharma or any of the other top players played in recent times? I think the top players must play a decent amount of domestic matches so that it helps the next generation of players,” said Kapil.

Notably, Rohit and Kohli have been rested for Team India’s upcoming assignment against Ireland. Premier speedster Jasprit Bumrah will be the skipper of the side in his comeback series against Ireland. Rohit and Kohli will lead the batting charge of the Men in Blue at the Asia Cup 2023 to be played in Sri Lanka. Under Rohit’s captaincy, Team India will start their Asia Cup campaign against arch-rivals Pakistan at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium on September 2.

Moreover, Kapil also praised England’s Bazball approach. As per the former aggressive all-rounder, Bazball is wonderful and cricket should be played like that.

“Winning the game should be the highest priority for all teams. Hence Bazball approach is wonderful,” said Kapil.
