Seniors are not inspiring youngsters

Kapil Dev on Tuesday lashed out at the Indian players for missing team spirit in the continuing Test series against England. Former captain also criticized senior cricketers, including Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Sachin Tendulkar, for not stirring the young people in the team.
The former all-rounder, who led India to its maiden World Cup title in 1983, slammed Dhoni's men for going through the movement more than their love for the game during the ongoing four-match series which England have previously pocketed 3-0.
Indian players did not play as a team. I am not trying to blame somebody but I think they played too much cricket. Within four days of winning the World Cup you play IPL. They then travel to West Indies for a tour and then from there to England. I think our players were going through the movement more than their love for the game, Kapil additional
Asked whether there were any other reason for the embarrassing defeat against England which has dislodge India from the number one position, Kapil said the seniors have not play a role in guiding the youngsters during the tour.
No cricketer walks up to young bowlers to advise them on what line to bowl. Dhoni could go up to Ishant and tell this. Media termed him as 'Captain Cool'. He says everyone should know their job.
In Indian sports, we have not reached that level where all the players know what they should do. We still look up to captain and senior players. We need an important person with violence. All the senior players have become so senior that they do not want to be violent, he said.
