Former world cup winning skipper of the Indian cricket team Kapil Dev believes this is not the right time to point fingers at anyone ahead of the mega tour to South Africa.

"It is not good to point fingers on anybody at this point in time. The South Africa tour is coming, please pay attention to the tour," Kapil told ABP News.

Earlier, Sourav Ganguly stated that regardless of India's performance at the T20 World Cup in 2021, the BCCI had asked Virat Kohli not to resign as India's T20 captain.

Virat Kohli, on the other hand, has revealed that he was not advised not to step down as T20 captain.

Kapil Dev added that publicly bad-mouthing each other is not a good thing for no matter whoever does it.

“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 [Sourav Ganguly] or Kohli [Virat Kohli]."

The 62-year-old advised the player and the board to control the situation and think about the country.
