Internet Desk: Former Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni was defended by Ashish Nehra. The pacer who played his last international recently has claimed that he sees Dhoni playing for his nation in the T20I World Cup in 2020.

Dhoni faced criticism off late when he failed to win the second T20I for his side at Rajkot. With a low strike rate Mahi scored 49 in 37  balls which saw a rise in the required run rate and put pressure on himself as well as his partner. Ajit Agarkar and VVS Laxman criticized Dhoni by saying India should provide opportunities to youngsters while he is good in the ODI's.

Nehra on the otherhand came on to lent his support to the former captain by claiming Dhoni should be allowed to play as long as his body permits.

"In every house, you need an elder one and he is there. I hope till next two to three years or as long as his body allows he plays. Cricket is a game of conditions definitely and it is not easy to perform. If it was in mind or if I am coach or captain I will be on his head that he has to play. I am not saying he doesn't perform he has to play. He is the first guy who will raise his hand and say I am retiring if he is not performing. But I personally feel we should leave at MS Dhoni and let him play cricket," Nehra said.

"He is one guy who is very honest with himself and the country. So, he should definitely play. I see him even to play T20 World Cup in 2020. If I can be a fast bowler at the age of 39. So, with MS Dhoni and his fitness, he can definitely play," he added.

Nehra also claimed that the two captains i.e. Kohli and Dhoni are not to comapred as they both are different personalities.
