Ludhiana: Former India cricket captain Kapil Dev has strongly come out in support of demonetisation, saying it is a bold step in the interest of the nation. “Although it has brought some initial problems, it will bear fruits in the long run,” the legendary all-rounder said addressing the annual function of Sat Paul Mittal school last night. The 1983 World Cup winning skipper said that he had nothing to do with any political party but he would not hesitate in appreciating the right step, which is for the benefit of the country. Kapil called upon the parents present in the function to bear with the situation as it is going to bring tremendous advantage to their children in years to come. “It is a case of today’s pain but tomorrow’s gain,” he said.

Earlier, Kapil suggested Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to send Hardik Pandya to England for playing county cricket in order to develop his all round game. Hardik recently made headlines by making into India s Test side for the first two-matches of the series against England. However, he did not get to play in any of the match and is not sure about whether selectors will keep him in the squad for rest of the series or not. But since the next Test is going to be played at Mohali, which is known for creating seam friendly pitches, selectors or captain Virat Kohli may want him in the side.

His selection was a huge surprise for every cricket fan and some criticized this decision too. Meanwhile, Kapil recently expressed his views on Hardik while speaking to Sportstar, He needs to bowl a lot more in First-Class cricket, not just four overs. Hardik must not confine himself to just one-day and Twenty20 cricket. I think the BCCI must send him to England to play county cricket for a season.
