India’s first World Cup-winning captain believed there was no able replacement lined up for Dhoni as yet. “Even if he is axed from the team, whom will they get,” he wondered.

Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja have been restricted to Test cricket of late but Kapil Dev said that was down to the performances of those who have replaced them.

“In the Indian team, there is no such thing as seniority. Performances dictate selection and that is why Kuldeep and Chahal have kept their place in the limited overs side,” he said.

The ever-improving Hardik Pandya has been touted as a worthy successor to the Haryana Hurricane after a phenomenal 2017 but Kapil thinks the Gujarat lad can go one better.

“Hardik has the talent to become better than me and he just needs to keep playing as he is,” beamed the 58-year-old.
