Everybody Should Understand MS Dhoni is Not 20 Years Old Anymore – Kapil Dev
Former India World Cup winning captain, Kapil Dev recently admitted that veteran wicket-keeper MS Dhoni is not the same 20-year-old cricketer. Meanwhile, Dhoni’s recent performances have come under the scanner in the recent tours. He has failed to put scores under his belt, and subsequently, the selectors dropped him from the T20I squad.
However, Kapil Dev backed Dhoni saying that it is wrong to expect everything out of him. The former all-rounder believes Dhoni is an asset to the team and he brings a lot to the table. Furthermore, Kapil also hopes that Dhoni keeps on playing more games for India.
“I think whatever he has done, he’s done a great job. But I think the bad part is we are expecting the same 20 or 25 years old Dhoni, which is not going to work,” Dev said to NDTV.
“He has experience, if he can help the team with his experience, it’s well done. But one thing everyone should understand that he is not 20, and he is not going to be 20 again. So whatever he brings to the table, if he can make himself available and he can play good cricket, he is an asset to the team. Only his fitness is important and I wish he keeps on playing more matches,” he added.
Virat Kohli is a special player
Speaking on the current Indian skipper, Kapil Dev stated that he is a special talent. In addition to, Dev feels Kohli’s hardwork, and dedication makes him what he is today.
“I think he is a special person, a special player. I think certain people are special and he is one of them. The people who have talent and are ready to work hard they become superhuman. So I think he is talented and disciplined and that makes him what he is,” Dev concluded.
