In recent times, MS Dhoni s place in the Indian T20I side has been a highly discussed debate. Former players such as VVS Laxman and Ajit Agarkar were of the opinion that Dhoni should be left out of the shortest format. Now, India s 1983 World Cup-winning captain Kapil Dev has given his view on the same.

In a report published by DNAIndia, Kapil said:

“There is nobody who will play throughout their life. But, I think he (Dhoni) is playing very good. Rest, I leave it to the selectors. They will do better job than what we have to do.

On national selectors:

“I give opinion and it will only create confusion in people’s mind. I don’t want to (do that). Let’s leave it to the selectors who are doing this job. They will put a lot of time when he should play and when he shouldn’t play.”

On Indian cricketers undergoing DNA test:

“I don’t know. It (DNA test) was not there in my time. It would be better if you ask Virat Kohli this question. I don’t know. A lot of science has come these days… I cannot answer that.

MS Dhoni s next international assignment will be against Sri Lanka in December.
