Former India captain Kapil Dev believes that the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) will have to take calls regarding the future of star players of Team India after the ICC T2O World Cup. India have been undone in the ongoing event by teams like Pakistan and New Zealand. Kapil further added that if star players are failing to get going, it’s time for the selectors to invest in young cricketers.
Captain Kohli isn’t having the best of times since last year and he would step down as the T20I captain after the tournament in the UAE.
“If we succeed on the basis of some other teams, Indian cricket has never appreciated it. If you want to win the World Cup or reach the semi-finals, do it on your own strengths. It is better not to depend on other teams. I guess the selectors will have to decide the future of the big names and the big players,” Kapil told ABP News.
“They need to think about whether the youngsters are performing well in the IPL. Is it time to give them a chance? How do we make the next generation better? If they lose, there is no harm because they will gain experience. But if these big players don’t perform now and play such bad cricket, there is going to be plenty of criticism. The BCCI needs to intervene and think about bringing more youngsters in,” Kapil added.
