Beleaguered Mahendra Singh Dhoni on Thursday found backing from former Australia cricketer Mike Hussey, who says the Indian captain was the most suitable to lead the team as he still has a lot of fire in his batting.
In yet another poor showing for Dhoni, the Indian captain scored a duck in the fourth ODI and the side slipped to a 25- run defeat from a very strong position.
Dhoni has been facing a lot of flak for not being able perform the role of a finisher for a long time.
“I would back MS to do the job and he has been doing it for so long now. He is best suited to handle most situations out there. People forget that it is not easy job to do. You cannot just come in and smash 60 off 30 balls every single time. You have got good bowlers, and they have gotten smarter, and they know what Dhoni’s strengths are, so things will not always happen the same way,” Hussey said.
