Kapil DevVirat Kohli, who ended the year 2022 with a century, has started the year 2023 with a bang. The former Indian captain has scored 2 centuries so far this year. Kohli is now very close to Sachin Tendulkar in terms of hundreds in ODIs. Sachin Tendulkar had 49 centuries in ODIs and Virat Kohli has scored 46 centuries. In such a situation, once again on social media, he is being compared with master blaster Sachin Tendulkar.
In such a situation, former captain Kapil Dev, who won the first World Cup to India, has also given his opinion on this issue. Former Indian team captain Kapil Dey has given a tremendous reply on the comparison of Sachin Tendulkar and Virat Kohli. Kapil Dev, former captain of the Indian team, believes that any team is made up of 11 players in which everyone contributes and that is why nothing can be said about any one player.
What did Kapil Dev say
Talking with Gulf News in Dubai, the former captain has given his opinion in this matter. Keeping his point, Kapil Dan has said that, “In the new era, there will be better players than the previous ones. Players of that caliber, you don’t need to pick one or two, this is a team of XI players. I may have my own likes or dislikes, but every generation is getting better. In our time, Sunil Gavaskar was the best, then later we saw Rahul Dravid, Sachin, Virender Sehwag and now in this generation Rohit, Virat and surely the next generation will be better.”
Apart from this, Kapil Dev has also given his opinion regarding the World Cup to be held this year. Kapil Dev, who won India the World Cup title for the first time, furthered his point and said, “There are many match winners in the team who can win India the title on their own. I just wish that the player does not get injured before going to the tournament, the Indian team plays in the World Cup with full force. Apart from this, Kapil Dev has admitted that there is another team which can win the World Cup. This year’s World Cup is going to be amazing.
