The debate discussing the decision to drop the Former Indian Cricket team's captain, MS Dhoni from the T20 format has been overstretched for various reasons. Former players like VVS Laxman and Ajit Agarkar who had a tiff with MS Dhoni during his stint as Indian captain didn't let the chance go of imparting their unneeded wisdom.

The two players were earlier in support of Dhoni’s replacement. However, many came forward to counter the criticism including the former cricketer, Virender Sehwag, Indian team's captain, Virat Kohli and even the head Indian coach Ravi Shastri suggested that the debate was ignited out of jealousy.

Seems like Dhoni’s mentor was not done and had more to say about the unending debate. Once again, warning the ‘jealous’ people to stop commenting on the two-time World Cup-winning captain, Ravi Shastri asked the self-acclaimed critics to look back at their own career graphs before questioning Dhoni’s future in T20 Internationals.

While talking to a leading agency, Shastri said, “People should look back at their career before commenting on Dhoni. The former captain has a lot of cricket left in him and it is the duty of the team to back the legend.”

Talking about the current performance of the team and their ability to keep up, he said, “There is no one better than Dhoni on the field given his ability behind the wicket and with the bat and his presence of mind and sharpness on the field.”

Applauding the Indian players for their excellent fielding skills, Ravi added, “In terms of fielding this team is the very best in the world at the moment and that's something that separates this team from Indian teams of the past.”

India is currently looking forward to hosting the 3-match test series against Sri Lanka starting from November 16 with the Eden five-dayer. Team’s star player, Hardik Pandya has been rested from the series but Shastri is confident as he believes that the “team is not about one particular individual, we lose together, we win together.”
