SummaryIt is great that Sachin has completed 23 years in international cricket: Kapil Dev

evolve and develop.

Asked about the lack of cricketing talents from the North East in the national arena, Kapil said it is the duty of the local associations to nurture and develop players.

"If somebody like Dhoni can come from Jharkhand and become the Indian skipper, why cannot there be players from Assam? All you need to do is provide facilities and encourage players."

"How many world-class cricket stadiums were there in the country 25 years ago? Now even places like Silchar and Rajkot have day and night lighting facilities," Kapil said.

He said he is satisfied with his role as a Hindi commentator and 70 per cent of the country's people want to listen to Hindi commentary of international matches.

"Cricket is spreading in rural areas. With promotion of Hindi commentary, results will be evident in next 10-15 years and more youngsters will take up the game," he said.
