Sunil Gavaskar has praised world champion captain Kapil Dev and recalled the time spent with him in the Indian team. Gavaskar has said that in India, there was no bigger player than Kapil. According to media reports, Gavaskar wrote, "In my opinion, Kapil is the greatest and match-winner among all the cricketers that India has produced, because he could win you both with bat and ball. I remember that I played against him for the first time in 1978 in the Wills Trophy match at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. We returned from a tour of Australia. Kapil and another talented all-rounder Rajendra Jadeja started bowling on a lively pitch against Mumbai."

He said, "Kapil was bowling well outswing, but from outside the bowling crease, so I was able to leave his balls easily. When I reached his end, I suggested that he go bowling close to the stumps. And it will make it difficult for him to play those same balls. His teammates reach him thinking that I am sledging him, but he drove everyone away. He started bowling from the next over close to the stumps and troubled all batsmen." Gavaskar went on to say, "This was the first time I met him for the first time. We were both playing against each other but despite that, I helped him. I already helped him in the match, it was on his mind Maybe that's why he always respected me." Gavaskar also told that somehow some board officials and cricketers tried to create a ruckus between them.

The former right-handed batsman said, "Some board officials and some retired players at the same time tried to create misunderstandings between us with media colleagues but both of us were committed to Indian cricket and we did not let that affect our game. "
