You dont get a player of his calibre every now and then. He is a fabulous cricketer and he should know when is the right time to go.” 57-year-old was highly impressed with KL Rahuls run of scores in the recent past. “Rahul has been an amazing player, never thought he would be like this when I saw him first. These young players, whenever they got the chance, they grabbed it and performed so well,” he said. Kapil was delighted to see so many Tests featuring in Indias home season after a long time. “I think after a long time we are going to see a home series so big, as a player I always look upto Test cricket which is real cricket. It will be a test of nerves and all the planning and everything you will see in Tests. This reminds me of the 1980s.” Kapil said team combinations will always depend on the conditions. “I am being very honest, you dont know the pitches, what is the opposition team exactly, you pick the team accordingly, its a last minute call by captain and management. Everything depends on the pitch, opposition, conditions.” PTI AH CM CMadvertisementlast_img
