Lahore, June 26 (ANI): Former Pakistan wicket keeper Moin Khan has commended India for winning the Asia Cup after 15 years while praising skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni for his 'composure and calmness'.

"India proved itself to be the best team under pressure in the event. Sri Lanka looked the best but the Indians came good when it mattered the most and this is the sign of a good team," Moin said.

"Being a wicketkeeper is a big advantage to Dhoni, I have captained Pakistan and I know that being a wicketkeeper gives you a clear view of everything happening on the field. I have always felt wicketkeepers make good captains," The Daily Times quoted Moin, as saying.

Showering praise on India's youth brigade, he said players like Suresh Raina, Rohit Sharma, Ravindra Jadeja and Virat Kohli were the next generation stars for the men in blue, but some of them still need to polish their skills.

"These players are a good investment for the future of Indian cricket and particularly for the 2011 World Cup but some of them seriously need to work out their problems against the fast shot pitched deliveries, they have struggled against bouncers for a while now," Moin noted. (ANI)
