Yet another day and yet another legendary person makes a voice on MS Dhoni. It seems like MS Dhoni has become some magical flower that everyone would like to sniff at least once. Few Legends are after his life asking him to retire from the passionate sport while few are backing him by giving their whole support.

Coming to the topic, the former skipper of India, Kapil Dev joins the category by backing MS Dhoni against the comments made by few analysts who left the game. He took the legendary Sachin Tendulkar as an exemplary figure and summed up the story flawlessly without any further clause.

Kapil Dev quoted that he is in a confused state on why people always get behind his back after losing one or two games on international stage. He questioned about the replacement of the person if MS Dhoni gets away from the game and said that Sachin was 38 when he won World Cup 2011.

Even if MS Dhoni is axed, whom will they get?

“I do not understand why so many people are on his back after a couple of average performances. Age definitely doesn’t have anything to do with it. Sachin was 38 when we won the World Cup and nobody was saying anything then. Even if he is axed from the team, whom will they get?,” Kapil Dev said, as per reports in the Times of India.

“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,” Kapil Dev added on why performance matters most than the seniority and the reason behind the ouster of Ashwin and Jadeja.

However, the quotes by Kapil Dev clearly explained that why people should not lose their tongue over the legendary player of the game after every loss by Team India.
