Legendary wicket-keeper batsman and former Indian skipper MS Dhoni who has not been at his best form with the bat in the recent past series, despite an impressive season in the IPL this year, the former captain has struggled to convert his form in International cricket.

Former captain Sunil Gavaskar has a piece of advice for Dhoni as he believes that former Indian skipper should start playing domestic cricket and play his trade there in order to regain his form and then stake a claim for the Indian team.

Speaking to media Sunil Gavaskar said, "Absolutely (when asked if Dhoni should feature in domestic cricket). Dhoni should be playing domestic cricket and should be playing the four-day games as well because he will help so many of the emerging players from Jharkhand."

"In the 50-over game you have limited opportunities but if you play a four-day game and play a long innings its great for your stamina, for your legs, for the rhythm that you want in limited-overs cricket," he added.

Dhoni's form will be a big issue when it comes to finishing the game as he has been the go-to man for Virat Kohli or Rohit Sharma in order to forge any tactical play.

In the year 2018, the former Indian skipper just managed to score 189 runs in 9 ODI innings at a paltry average of 27 with the highest score of just 42 and this has affected India from getting the explosive finishes to the innings.
