MS Dhoni to lead Kapil's best XI

Current India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni was chosen by former captain Kapil Dev to lead his all-time best ODI team. Meanwhile, the legendary cricketer omitted his name from the squad saying the list included the best Indian players.  

 
Kapils's best ODI XI 
 
Skipper - MS Dhoni
Batsmen - Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, Sourav Ganguly, Virat Kohli, Yuvraj Singh, Mohammed Azharuddin 
Fast bowlers - Zaheer Khan, Javagal Srinath. 
Spinners - Anil Kumble, Harbhajan Singh  
Ravindra Jadeja - 12th man. 
 
However, it was surprising that Kapil did not include any of his team mates from the 1983 World Cup winning squad. On his choice of the best XI, the former captain said that it was only his personal view and people could disagree with him. 
 
"Though we won the 1983 World Cup, the fact remains that we weren't the best side. West Indies were by far the better side. We won because of our confidence," said Kapil. 
 
Kapil also said that the MS Dhoni-led team which won the Champions Trophy in England this year is the best-ever team in the history of Indian cricket. "Even without Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir and Zaheer Khan they won the Cup. Nobody really missed the stars. 
 
"To it this is a fantastic fielding side. I have never seen such outstanding fielding side in the history of Indian cricket," he said.
