Former India captain Kapil Dev has put his belt in the ongoing Virat Kohli-Sourav Ganguly statement controversy row. Kapil criticised the timing of Kohli’s revelations as India have a big tour later this month.
“It is not good to point fingers on anybody at this point in time. The South Africa tour is coming and please pay attention to the tour.
“I would say Board president is Board president but yes the Indian cricket team captain is also a big thing. But talking badly about each other in public, I don’t think it is a good thing, whether it is Sourav or Kohli,” Kapil told ABP News.
The World Cup winning skipper urged Kohli to “control the situation” and keep country first.
“Aap situation ko control kijiye, behtar ye hai ki aap desh ke baare mein sochiye (Please control the situation and it’s better to think about the country now).
“Jo galat hai woh kal pata chal hi jayega but I don’t think it is right to stoke a controversy before a tour,” said Kapil Dev.
