DhoniNew Delhi: Former Test player Chetan Chauhan lauded Mahendra Singh Dhoni's captaincy skills and said that dashing cricketer reminds him of the India's living cricket legend Kapil Dev.

"The way Dhoni handles his responsibilities as a skipper on and off the ground reminds me of Kapil Dev. Like Kapil, Dhoni also leads the team from the front and is always ready to take tough decisions on the ground. That's the secret behind his success," Chauhan said while releasing a book written on Dhoni.

" Captain cool: MS Dhoni' is a biography written by famed sports writer Gulu Ezekiel.

"He is very much involved with the game all the time, that's the character which I really admire in him," Chauhan said.

The former cricketer, who played 40 Test matches, said the Ranchi-lad is ready to lead the Test team but felt the selectors did the right thing to wait for the time being.

"He is already on the line for the job. But what's the hurry? Kumble is doing a fine job now, so let him continue. Dhoni will also get the opportunity very soon," he said.

Chetan Chauhan, who is also the vice president of Delhi and Districts Cricket association (DDCA), promised to take every possible measure to ensure security during the third Test against Australia at Delhi.

"We have the experience of holding much more sensitive matches like the Indo-Pak series in 2006 and this time also we will do it properly," he said.
