Border-Gavaskar Trophy: Shame that Rohit Sharma does not look fit on TV, says Kapil Dev


Under the leadership of captain Rohit Sharma, the Indian team is currently playing the home Test series against Australia. In this four-match Test series, Team India has taken a 2-0 lead in the series by winning the first two Tests.

Rohit Sharma performed brilliantly in the first Test match played in Nagpur. He is the only player to score a century in this series

But former Indian team captain Kapil Dev has expressed concern about Rohit Sharma’s fitness. He said that Rohit needs to focus on his fitness. Kapil also said that Rohit looks overweight on the field.

Talking to ABP News, Kapil Dev said, “It is very important (to be fit). More so for a captain. It’s a shame if you are not fit. Rohit needs to put some hard work on it. He is a great batter but when you talk about his fitness, he looks a bit overweight, at least on TV,”

Kapil Dev further said, “Yes, it’s different when you look at someone on TV and then in real life. But from whatever I see, Rohit is a great player and a great captain, but he needs to get fit,”

“Look at Virat, whenever you see him, you say, ‘that’s some fitness!’,” Kapil Dev concluded.

Rohit Sharma has returned to the Indian Test team after about 11 months. He played the last Test against Sri Lanka in March last year, then tested positive for COVID-19 and was ruled out of the final Test against England and the two-Test series against Bangladesh with a finger injury.
