New Delhi, July 23:  Mahendra Singh Dhoni's decision to bowl his seam-up stuff during the second day of the Lord's Test on Friday came under severe criticism from former India captain Kapil Dev, who feels that the current skipper made mockery of Test cricket.


“Dhoni has made mockery of Test cricket by bowling (himself). This is not acceptable, on the second day of the Test match, you can't do this,” Kapil Dev said on a Hindi news channel.

Kapil who never minces words was also scathing about Zaheer Khan suffering from hamstring injury.

“Zaheer is responsible for this. He has put the team in trouble. He should have known his fitness and tested his fitness levels before returning to test cricket,” he fumed.

“It's really tough to bowl 20 overs a day in Test cricket. Zaheer is responsible for this. He has killed the possibility of India winning this Test match,” he added.

Zaheer suffered a hamstring strain in his right thigh on the first day of the Lord's Test. PTI
