Kapil compares Dhoni and Kohli; says, “Baap Baap hota hain aur beta beta”

And it’s Kapil Dev again who has stepped up and created the headlines again but this time the subject deals with Indian limited-over skipper MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli. Kapil Dev suggests that the comparison between Indian Test skipper Kohli and shorter format skipper too early. He feels that Kohli is in the initial stages of his leadership role and has a long way to go.

When questioned about who is the better skipper between the two? He was quoted in a report from PTI saying, “Baap Baap hota hain aur beta beta hota hain” Kapil further added, “There is a still long way to go before Kohli the captain matches the achievements of Dhoni. Having said that, Kohli has been doing great as a batsman and I am sure he will be equally good as India’s captain.”

India after losing the Twenty20 (T20) and ODI series to South Africa will now fight for glory in the four-match Test series.  Kapil opines that the surface will have a crucial role to play and regarding this he said, “India will do well if the pitches are prepared keeping their strength in mind. That is to have good batting wickets that also offer assistance to their spinners. It will be tough to win if the curators end up preparing surfaces that suit South Africa.”
