Hyderabad: India’s 1983 cricket World Cup winning captain has come out in defence of the one who emulated his feat in 2011 but has been facing a lot of flak of late for his inability to finish games. Legendary allrounder Kapil Dev feels there is no better choice than Mahendra Singh Dhoni at the moment.

“I am currently not in the opinion of dropping Dhoni from the team. I don’t see a better name than him at the moment that currently fits in the squad. I am the one who gives opinion and my views will create confusion in people’s mind. So leave these things to the selectors,” Kapil said while interacting with mediapersons here on Saturday.

 

“A moment comes when a player has to hang his boots, even Dhoni will have to, but currently he is doing a good job for the side,” Kapil added  while defending Mahi’s place in the Indian team.

Kapil also backed the home side after being bowled out for 172 in the first innings by Sri Lanka in the ongoing Test at Eden. “It is unfair to expect our boys to go out and score 500-600 runs everytime,” added Kapil.
