Internet Desk: MS Dhoni has been advised to approach the T20 format of the game "differently" by the former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly.

Dhoni's recent dip in form in the T20I has caught the eyes of the critics thereby prompted former greats like VVS Laxman and Ajit Agarkar to speak about his future in the shortest format of the game. The duo claimed that the Men in Blue should pave way for an youngster while Dhoni is perfect for the ODIs.

"His record in T20I is not that good compared to ODIs. Hope Kohli and team management will speak to him separately. He has immense ability. If he approaches T20Is differently, then he will be successful," said Ganguly.

Chasing 197 in second T20 versus New Zealand in Rajkot, India were struggling at 97 for four when Dhoni joined skipper Virat Kohli and found it difficult to get it going. Eventually India lost the match.

Ganguly however feels Dhoni has a lot of cricket left in him, especially in the one-dayers.

"Definitely not for one-dayers. I think he should keep playing one-day cricket, but he has to play differently in T20Is. He has to play T20Is freely. It depends on the selectors and how they would like to play him," Ganguly said here on the sidelines of a TV shoot.

Ganguly expressed surprise at India opting to rest all-rounder Hardik Pandya for the upcoming Test series.

"I'm surprised. I don't know if he's injured. He has played only three Tests... This is the age to play. I don't know the exact reason. Hope he's fit.
