While speaking on a podcast with Ranveer Allahabadia, Kapil Dev spoke about Sachin Tendulkar's talent when he made his debut in 1989 and how he was scared if the 15-year-old batter could sustain that much success. Kapil Dev expressed the same reservations about Shubman Gill, pointing towards his exceptional batting skills.

“He (Sachin Tendulkar) was too young, just 15-year-old so you treat him like a baby, but I think within 6 months the way he played, the way he conducted himself, we understood that he has some special talent. But, the only fear with such talented players is that when you get so much at a young age, can you sustain, that's the thing we feared about," Kapil Dev said in a conversation with Ranveer.

The remarks from the Indian legend came as India is set to face New Zealand in the ICC World Cup semi-finals on 15 November at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. The Rohit Sharma-led side is all set to take the revenge of semi-final defeat in the ICC World Cup 2019 and India has shown the ability to dominate all teams in the current World Cup edition and keep the trophy home.
