Kapil lauds Dhawan’s ton; says didn’t miss Sehwag, Tendulkar
Zee Media Bureau
New Delhi: A day after Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan slammed his maiden ODI ton, former Indian skipper Kapil Dev said the left-hander is the future of Indian cricket and nobody missed players like Sehwag or Tendulkar in the match.
Speaking to a leading cricket portal, the 1983 World Cup winning skipper said people don’t talk about players who have done well in history but praise the ones who are currently playing well.
"At least I am not missing any one of them and neither is the crowd here. No one cares for who is not playing. People are talking about Shikhar Dhawan and not Tendulkar or Sehwag and herein lay a clear message for Indian cricket," Kapil said.
Kapil said that the team’s focus should be to get the best out of the current players and as commentators they haven’t even discussed about the likes of Sachin, Sehwag or Gambhir.
"This is transition time for Indian cricket and we should count on the current crop of players available. As commentators we have not even discussed a Sachin, a Sehwag, a Ganguly or a Gambhir," he said.
Notably Dhawan became the fifth Indian player after Sourav Ganguly, Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag and Mohammad Kaif to score a ton in the Champions Trophy.
