New Delhi, Dec 19, News24 Bureau: Recently, Former Indian skipper Sunil Gavaskar praised Kapil Dev at an event and said that Kapil Dev would have gone for Rs 25 crore in IPL auction. Sunil Gavaskar termed Kapil India's greatest ever cricketer given his talent with bat and ball.
Ironically, when the same question was asked to Kapil Dev he took another name. If you are thinking that this luckiest player is Sachin Tendulkar or Virat Kohli then you are wrong.
He is none other than our former Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Kapil Dev said in an event that, "MS Dhoni is the greatest player India has ever produced. He played 90 Tests and then said let's give a chance to the youngsters. Dhoni did that and hats off to him for putting his country before himself."
Meanwhile, when asked if he helped the current players in the recent Test match against Australia with suggestions and tips, Kapil said that he would never go to anyone unless someone seeks him for help.
"I don't go to them - I have learnt this from Sunny bhai.. I won't go to them unless they need me. When they become big players and play for India, it is their responsibility. No former cricketer would not want to help. We all want to help them - but they have to ask.. If they think we can help, no one will say no. But I don't think we should go to their dressing room because they have their own ways and technique.".
