World Cup-winning Indian captain Kapil Dev believes Virat Kohli, who struggled in New Zealand across formats, needs to practise more as “his reflexes and hand-eye coordination are probably slowing down”.
“When you reach a certain age, when you cross 30 then it affects your eyesight. In swings, which used to be his strength, he (Kohli) used to flick them four but now he has been dismissed twice. So I think he needs to adjust his eyesight a bit,” Dev said on ABP news.
In the two Test matches, Kohli managed just 38 runs at an average of 9.50 — his worst in recent times. He amassed a total of 218 runs in the 11 innings (four T20Is, three ODIs and four Tests) that he played against the Black Caps and ended a pathetic tour with just 14 in his last innings.
