Addressing the media at an event in Gurugram, the most successful Indian skipper told he still tries to stay connected with the game despite retiring from Tests.

"You never lose the cricket bug. Even if you leave the game you try to stay connected to the game. I miss Test cricket because it's challenging but I made the right decision," Dhoni said.

Dhoni on Wednesday (July 20) said he doesn't see any major alterations in India's batting order.

Dhoni, who led India to a 1-0 win on the previous tour to the Caribbean in 2011, feels the team has a "settled" line-up and has the experience of playing in alien conditions.

"We have a settled top six batting. There can be one or two new faces but more or less that's how the mix works. They have also played outside subcontinent and have necessary experience," Dhoni told reporters.
