Kapil Dev Gives A Surprising ‘EGO’ Remarks For Present Indian Cricketers

After the defeat in the World Test Championship final against Australia, ex-Indian cricketer Sunil Gavaskar expressed his surprise at the current situation. He highlighted that in the past, players like Virender Sehwag, Rahul Dravid, Sachin Tendulkar, and several others used to seek his advice and suggestions regularly. However, he now takes it as a surprise that modern cricketers do not have any advice anymore.

India has lost so many games and important tournaments in recent times and former legendary batter Gavaskar believes that these players should come to him for talks which is not happening now.

Former Indian all-rounder Kapil Dev has also commented on this statement and said that the modern-day cricketers think that they know everything but it is not so. They are confident but they should talk to their former cricketers as they can help improve their game.

“Differences come out, the good (thing) about these players…is that they are very confident. Negative point is they think they know everything. I don’t know how to put it better than that. But they are confident, but they think ‘you don’t have to ask anybody’. What we believe is an experienced person can help you,” Kapil Dev said while talking to The Wire.

Kapil Dev also talked about the ego players have these days. He said that with lots of money arrogance can surround a person but it is important to listen to others.

“Sometimes, when there is too much money, arrogance comes. These cricketers think they know everything. That’s the difference. I would say there are so many cricketers who need help. When Sunil Gavaskar is there, why can’t you talk? Where is the ego? There is no ego as such. They feel ‘we are good enough’. Maybe they are good enough, but extra help from somebody who has seen 50 seasons of cricket; he knows things. Listening sometimes can change your thought,” he added.
