NEW DELHI: Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni is on the threshold of creating World Cup history but former captain Kapil Dev, who has been there and done that, hopes that the maverick cricketer is not judged by the result of just one final.
“I will never doubt Dhoni’s credentials as a captain irrespective of the result of World Cup final. Lot of people believe that it’s the ultimate result which will count but I believe otherwise,” the skipper of India’s victorious 1983 team, said at a promotional event today.
“Look at Ricky Ponting. He has won two World Cups and after one bad World up he is out. That’s not the way to judge a captain. So I would like that Dhoni shouldn’t be judged by a win or loss. Instead, let’s all wish him the very best for Saturday’s final.
