Kapil Dev- Indian crickets advice dispenser

Kapil Dev seems to have entered a disgruntled phase. Like all old men who had their ambitions thwarted, he too has started to envy the young. However, 'Paaji' has resisted the temptation to demean the young cricketers outright and instead decided to put them down by giving away unwanted advice.
He first advised Yuvraj Singh and had his unmentionables singed by a sharp retort from Yuvraj's mother. Having now recouped his strength he has now taken the Salman Khan of Indian Cricket - ShanthaKumaran Sreesanth under his fold.
Kapil Dev who was in Trivandrum yesterday, advised Sreesanth to concentrate more on the game rather than off the field activities.
His unwarranted advice has raised this bloggers hope that this time Kapil Dev will get a kick up his backside for his pains.
Anyone willing to wager a bet?

He had people listening to him when he was with the BCCI. Now since he doesnt have any clout with the official body Sreesanth may do more of what he has been asked not to do. Incidendaly I am afraid his career is running concurrently with Sachins.

I have a gut feeling that he will make a smashing comeback.

Looks like u r a great fan of Sree. He has been chosen for A team and not for this series. Any idea why?

He was unfit for the Sri Lankan tour.

His selection is primarily to asses his fitness.
