“Selectors will have to decide the future of big names,” says Kapil Dev on India’s shambolic performance in T20 World Cup

Kapil Dev is the first ever World Cup winning captain of India

The former Indian captain Kapil Dev is not happy at all with the way the Indian cricket team has gone about their business in the ongoing T20 World Cup 2021 and has asked BCCI to decide the future of some of the big names in the team.

According to Kapil Dev, if the BCCI selects young players and they don’t perform to a very high level, they will at least gain the experience and be better for the future, but the same can’t be said about the senior players who have already gained the experience. The seniors have to perform, else they will get plenty of criticism.

Kapil pointed out the fact that there were some very impressive performances by the youngsters in the second leg of IPL 2021 and the time has come for the selectors to decide if they want to have those youngsters in the team or they want to continue with the seniors who have failed to perform in this World Cup.

“I guess the selectors will have to decide the future of the big names and the big players. The selectors need to think whether the youngsters who are performing well in the IPL, is it time to give them a chance?, Kapil Dev said on ABP News.

Kapil Dev is not too impressed that India are depending on other teams to progress in the ongoing World Cup

India is not completely out of the T20 World Cup 2021 yet. They beat Afghanistan yesterday and have got themselves a chance to sneak through if Afgahanistan beats New Zealand, but Kapil is not really amused by the kind of situation the Indian team has put itself into.

Kapil Dev insisted if you are in a situation where you have to depend on the results of the matches of the other teams, then that’s not really a great situation to be in. If you want to go through all the way to the final or the semi-final, get the job done on your own and don’t depend on the others.

Kapil Dev was the first Indian captain ever who won a World Cup for India against all odds in 1983 by beating the mighty West Indies team at Lord’s cricket ground. The legendary all-rounder had led the team from the front right through that tournament.


I write a bit on cricket and I am more interested in technical and tactical side of the game, rather than bravado.
