Colombo, August 24: Indian skipper Virat Kohli yesterday said that the series of upcoming limited-over matches scheduled to be held this year will help Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
"And it helps someone like MS also because he doesn't play Test cricket anymore. This long streak of matches will help him be in touch with the international games, find some momentum and stick to it," Kohli added.
He further said “Dhoni will be approaching 38 by the time and the impressive performances of the experienced Dinesh Karthik and the up and coming Rishabh Pant has led to suggestions from some quarters that the Indian selectors should opt for blooding in either of the two in the ODI side.”
36-year-old former captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s form as well as his cricketing career has been under scanner following his retirement from Test cricket in 2014. India is currently leading 1-0 in the ongoing ODI series against Lanka.
