I don't think we have any right to tell him how to play: Robin Uthappa
The veteran Indian cricketer Robin Uthappa has come out with a bold statement on the former Indian skipper Virat Kohli, who is currently struggling with his form.
In a recent interaction with ShareChat's Audio Chatroom session, Robin Uthappa said, "When he (Virat Kohli) was scoring runs when he was hitting hundred after hundred, nobody said he should play like this or that.
Now, I don't think we have any right to tell him how to play. He has scored 70 hundred thanks to his own abilities, and he will score another 30 or 35 also on his own abilities," was quoted as saying by CricTracker.
"If he feels it is fit for him to take a break, then he can take a break. He is a match-winner, one of the proven match-winners, and he is the best in the world. We have no right and authority or no ground to stand on and question his ability to win matches or question his position in our team," said Uthappa.
