MS Dhoni should continue as captain till the next World Cup : Virender Sehwag

Former opening batsman Virender Sehwag has backed World Cup winning captain MS Dhoni to stay on as India’s limited-overs captain till the next 50 over World Cup to be played in 2019.

“He should continue as captain till the next World Cup. If he does so, he can leave behind a good World Cup team.” He also said, “And if he retires… you can imagine, even now when Dhoni is there, people have to think about who should bat at 5th, 6th, and 7th positions.”

“If Dhoni is not there, the 5th, 6th, and 7th slots will become absolutely free and you cannot expect somebody to finish the match properly”, the former right-hander added.
