He also said Virat KohliRohit Sharma and KL Rahul They have the ability to play at a strike rate of over 150 but they have to decide whether they want to play the role of anchor or striker.

“The reputation is huge and maybe the pressure is too much but it shouldn’t be. You have to play fearless cricket. All these players (Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul) can play with a strike rate of 150-160. They are such great players but when it comes to scoring runs they all get out, we say you can spend your time in 8-10-12 balls, but you get out after playing 25 balls. It’s time to take off, you’re out and that’s why the pressure is on you. Either you become an anchor or a striker. It’s up to the players or the team to decide. ” Kapil Dev said on Uncut YouTube channel.
“If you talk about KL Rahul, you need to talk to him about playing 20 overs and if he scores 80-90, that’s fine. But if you score 20 overs. You play, and you come back unbeaten on 60. You are not doing justice to the team, “he added.
Asked if the team needs to change its approach in T20I, the former Indian captain said: “I think there is a need to change the attitude, if that doesn’t happen then If they are big players, then they need to make a big impact on the team. You need to be big not just because of the name but because of the performance. We have to play cricket, otherwise we are here. Talk about it. “
India will next play KL Rahul in a five-match T20I series against South Africa. Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma have been rested for the series.
