Kapil Dev lashes out at BCCI

Kapil Dev came down heavily on the BCCI for sacking bowling coach Venkatesh Prasad and fielding coach Robin Singh.

Former India captain on Monday said that the duo were sacked without looking into the good work they had done for the team.

Kapil said both Prasad and Robin were doing a good job for the team and if they were sacked for the poor performance of the team then the manager should also have been held responsible.

"Both of them (Prasad and Robin) have done a good job for the team. The Board should have removed manager of the team also holding him responsible for poor performance of the team in Champions Trophy," Kapil told PTI.

"The basis of removal from the post should be on performance criteria. Why there should be a sword hanging over those who are giving good result?" he asked.

He said Australia were no doubt the better side in the first one-dayer in Vadodara.

"I think the team which performed better won the match and the Australians were the better side that is why they won in Vadodara," he said.

"The team needs to concentrate in each department of the game to win the seven one-day series against Australia and emerge as a force to reckon with," he added.
