Kapil Dev makes a big statement in context of cricketers, let’s find out?
Ex Indian cricketer and World Cup winning captain Kapil Dev has recently made a big statement, that it is the duty of every cricketer to promote and support other sports “because other players spend the same amount of time as the cricketers do.”
“It feels good. In this country, everyone feels that a cricketer gets everything. So, it is the duty of every cricketer like us to promote other sports too because other players to spend the same amount of time as the cricketers do but if you cannot make a living out of golf then it feels disheartening. So, I feel if we can bring in more money into that and thanks to our sponsors if such people come to us then we feel the coming generation players can make a name for themselves,” Kapil Dev told ANI.
“The most important thing is that we should focus on our infrastructure. If a youngster gets a chance, then only he can become a player. I don’t want to say that cricket has done the best, but they have given a good infrastructure to every player. That is why cricket has excelled. I would like to say that we as PGTI should invest money there to make small driving ranges where kids can showcase their talent because it is not that only elite people can play this sport. Anyone can play and the more middle-class people play it generates a new level of energy.” said Kapil Dev on the Indian sports infrastructure.
“My only message to youngsters is that passion should be there to achieve something. One should play but there has to be a goal behind it that I want to achieve something. You have to prove to yourself and the world that you have the talent, and they can showcase it. Enjoy yourself and if you can make a career out of it then why not,” he added.
Moreover, the legendary Indian all rounder said that youngsters should have a passion to achieve their goals and they have to prove themselves to the world that they have the talent.
