Virat Kohli defends MS Dhoni, slams those questioning his position in team
Livid with constant scrutiny of Mahendra Singh Dhoni's finishing skills, India captain Virat Kohli hit back at the critics for "conveniently" singling out one man while ignoring failure of other players, including himself. Dhoni's 37-ball-49 in the second T20I that India lost to New Zealand was panned by experts as he played too many dot balls. While VVS Laxman has said that someone younger should be tried in T20s, Virender Sehwag has asked the team management to make the former skipper understand his "role in the team." Kohli said that while being critical of Dhoni, one needs to understand that how much time he is getting to bat. Dhoni had scores of 25, 18 not out and 25 in the three ODIs while he scored 7 not out, 49 and 0 not out in the T20s but Kohli didn't seem too worried.
