Kapil Dev Bridges The Generation Gap
What he said:
"You can never compare a son with his father. The fathers never had the modern day gadgets that their sons are used to nowadays. Yet they worked tirelessly to get everything for their kids. That’s why it is unfair to compare two generations. But you always want your son to be better than you."
Kapil Dev cavils at comparing his generation of cricketers to the current one.
The former Indian captain was in Durban for the second edition of the World Cricket Legends.
Kapil called Dhoni’s boys “the best Indian team ever”.
"When you have so many records, so much experience and have done so well, you can’t complain about anything at all."
The former all-rounder said that the next generation “will be better than the previous one”.
“If it is not then we aren’t moving forward as a society. If you at all have to compare, I would say this team is far better,” added Kapil.
What he really meant:
“The child is father of the man.”
What he definitely didn’t:
“Gadgets R Us.”
