Kapil Dev remarked that it will be tough for Dhoni to keep momentum in the limited-over format after taking retirement from Test cricket. Kapil said, “When you stop playing Test cricket, it is very tough to carry on playing and keep your momentum going. Dhoni’s fitness will key, he is not short on ability but when you stop playing one format, then it is very difficult to motivate yourself.”

Dhoni had decided to quit Test cricket after the “Boxing Day” Test against Australia at Melbourne in the last year.

The 1983 World Cup winning captain is not sure about the future of 2011 World Cup winning captain.  Kapil said on Wednesday about Dhoni, “He is a very sorted person. We can’t read his mind, but I don’t think news stories will make an impact on Dhoni.”

On the behalf of Dhoni’s future, BCCI (Board of Council for Cricket in India) revealed that Dhoni will remain limited-over captain till 2016 T20 World Cup. Kapil Dev welcomed the BCCI’s decision.

On the other hand, Ganguly thinks that nothing wrong of Dhoni’s Test retirement. Ganguly said, “One will have to work hard and perform well to reach the level of Dhoni, who has set a high standard in the cricket arena.”
