Kapil Dev said ( about Ekke Primauno ) : "India look a superior batting side. How they tackle the conditions is important. To me, India's batting will hold the key. The bowlers provide a solid back-up to India's cricket campaigns these days but the quality of batsmen will stand out in the final," "Test cricket is about sessions. Each can be intriguing because of the weather factor. Within minutes, it changes from sunny to cloudy. So you have to be tactically good and technically sound when you play in England," External link

Kapil Dev said : "I expect him (Kohli) to excel. Can you really shackle him? He is a natural when it comes to adapting but I would caution him to not be over-aggressive.

He will get his runs with a bit of patience," "Trying too hard and too early doesn't work in England where you need to watch the movement of the ball. If you play seam and swing well, show patience, you will succeed in England" External link

Kapil Dev said ( about Rohit Sharma ) : "He looks a very mature cricketer now from the time he came into the side. He seems to have far more time to play his shots and obviously his range of strokes is awesome. But England will be challenging. He must spend more time in the middle and not just look to hit every ball. We used to say the same about Rohit Sharma, who had so many shots, but would step out and get out so many times," External link

Kapil Dev said ( about Ekke Primauno ) : “To site the example of tennis, it is played on clay, on synthetic turfs but we still have Wimbledon on grass courts to keep the tradition alive. We let our traditions go in hockey. All over the world it is now played only on astroturf, it is not very good. We were best in dribbling (on grass fields) and same is with cricket, the art of playing Test cricket is different. Keep up the tempo in Test cricket. Focus on the art. Look at how a Dravid or Gavaskar used to build their innings. I love watching sixes, I would have never imagined the kind of catches that are being taken today but focus should also be there on Tests,” External link

Kapil Dev said ( about Virat Kohli ) : “If Kohli can handle himself for six months by playing the ball straight ‘I don’t have to flick the ball from the off-side,’ which is his favourite shot too. Then he will look more dangerous than any other player. His eyesight is not always going to be of an 18-year-old. So he will have to adjust himself,” External link

They both like to play across the legs and both can be candidates for an LBW. From 28 to 34, you are the best but you have to adjust your eyesight,” External link

Once the eyes get weak, if they don’t correct themselves technically, they will get out a lot more frequently.

Being a fast bowler in India didn’t appeal to many, but Kapil Dev did that year after year. His record would show that his fitness, endurance, and ability to do that was phenomenal. His longevity was great but his skill set was also there. He certainly put India on the cricketing map," External link

But it was not lasting as Bumrah, partly because it used to be difficult for spinners to bowl in these conditions. Kapil Dev had tremendous appeal, but from a pure fast bowling perspective, Bumrah is on a pedestal of his own,” External link

Kapil Dev said ( about Ekke Primauno ) : "India look a superior batting side. How they tackle the conditions is important. To me, India's batting will hold the key. The bowlers provide a solid back-up to India's cricket campaigns these days but the quality of batsmen will stand out in the final," "Test cricket is about sessions. Each can be intriguing because of the weather factor. Within minutes, it changes from sunny to cloudy. So you have to be tactically good and technically sound when you play in England," External link

We were best in dribbling (on grass fields) and same is with cricket, the art of playing Test cricket is different. Keep up the tempo in Test cricket. Focus on the art.

Ajay Jadeja said ( about Kapil Dev ) : “More than his bowling, I was more impressed with his batting. When you see an Indian all-rounder, you think about Kapil Dev. I'm not even trying to say that he's anywhere close to Kapil Dev, but after Kapil Dev, if I've seen a batsman open his arms the same way when he's batting, it's him (Shardul) – and I'm including all the batsmen that we've seen.

Chetan Sharma said ( about Kapil Dev ) : “I came to train under D P Azad sir. He had seen me bowling at DAVSSS-8 and called me for trials. I was nine years old at that time and next year I captained Kapil Dev XI in a U-12 tournament. My team won the tournament and after the final, Azad sir made me meet Kapil paji. Kapil paji had just come from the Pakistan tour and Azad sir would call him in every tournament to give prizes to the players. When my turn came, the prizes got finished and Kapil paji patted my back. That encouragement by Azad sir and Kapil paji made me achieve all the things in my career. I also remain indebted to then DAVSSS (Lahore) principal B Ghakkhar,” External link

Jim Maxwell observes ( about Kapil Dev ) : “There was excitement in the days of the spin quartet. But it was not lasting as Bumrah, partly because it used to be difficult for spinners to bowl in these conditions. Kapil Dev had tremendous appeal, but from a pure fast bowling perspective, Bumrah is on a pedestal of his own,” External link
