Kapil Dev, 63, is saying in that video- I listen a lot on TV these days. There’s a lot of pressure. There is a lot of pressure to play in the IPL. That’s all I say. ‘do not play.’ What is this pressure? If there is passion, there should be no pressure. These come from American words like pressure and depression. I don’t understand this. I am from farmer family. We play to enjoy and when it is fun there can be no pressure.
This video of Kapil Dev is going viral on social media. Some people are criticizing him. It is also true that the pressure and depression of the game were not talked about for a long time, but after Kovid-19 these issues have started being talked about openly.
In the last few years, many players, including former Team India captain Virat Kohli, have accepted the matter of mental pressure. Not only this, batsmen like Glenn Maxwell and Ben Stokes have taken an indefinite break from cricket because of this. In such a situation, Kapil Dev is being heavily criticized. Although some people are writing things in his support.
