Indian skipper is a terrific leader, but India need the services of someone like MS Dhoni to handle pressure situations, according to Shane Warne.

Dhoni’s absence was felt during the fourth ODI in Mohali, where India failed to defend a total of 358 runs.

Talking to ANI, Warne said it is easy to lead a side when things are going your way, but one needs the presence of experienced players like Dhoni in crunch moments.

“Virat Kohli is a terrific leader but many a time we can have experience of MS Dhoni to help Virat when pressure is on. It’s easy to captain a side when things are going well but when it’s tough you need experience like you saw in MS Dhoni,” the former Australian cricketer said.

He slammed the critics of the former Indian skipper.”MS Dhoni is a great player. He can bat anywhere whatever the team needs. He is adaptable and anyone criticising him has no idea what they are talking about. India need him in the World Cup. They need his experience and leadership skills on the field to help Virat Kohli as well,” he said.
