Kapil Dev backed India captain MS Dhoni’s point of playing on turning tracks at home for Test matches.

Earlier, Dhoni who guided India to a 2-0 series whitewash over New Zealand, expressed his displeasure over the Bangalore wicket saying that it didn t help the spinners much.

Backing Dhoni’s point of view, Kapil said, “I think the team management knows what is best for them. Winning is the most important thing. It doesn’t matter if you play on a turning track or not.”

Kapil also said the retirements of VVS Laxman and Rahul Dravid will not be a worry for India.

“I don’t think this is a big problem. It’s just a feeling that some individuals are irreplaceable. And this feeling was there in every generation but history tells us that we overcame that. Now also we will see through this phase. We have good replacements for all the slots,” Kapil was quoted saying by the Times of India.
