His return to the field is bringing utmost joy to both his fans and the Chennai Super Kings franchise. On the other hand, Indian cricket legend, Kapil Dev is not impressed with all the focus and fixation that everyone has on Dhoni this time during Indian Premier League. He feels that this platform is a great way for the selectors to scout for fresh talent. Considering, T20 World Cup is coming up, everyone is expecting that the selection committee will fixate on Dhoni and bring him back to the team.

Unfortunately, Dhoni has been on sabbatical and not played any competitive matches in the recent past. Due to this Kapil Dev feels that any player who is away from the field for this long should play other competitive matches before being considered for a World Cup team.
