Ind vs Aus 2016: Sourav Ganguly backs under-fire MS Dhoni, blames bowlers for poor show
Ganguly stands by the Indian skipper despite scrutiny from all corners.
Sydney: India's under-fire limited-overs skipper MS Dhoni has found support in former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly, who reckons it's unfair to blame the skipper for India's series loss against Australia.
India's loss against Steve Smith-led Australia, is their third consecutive loss in an ODI series under Dhoni's leadership.
In an Instagram post, Ganguly said, "Another series loss.. Another chance to blame the skipper! . What more can you ask from him? . This guy wants to bat up the order but he can't because there is not enough experience when it comes to the lower order.. . So he continues as a finisher.. Continues doing the dirty job.. . And still manages it brilliantly! . Gets a quickfire 23.. . Then keeps the wickets exceedingly well.. . Leads his side with utmost passion and dedication! . Desperately tries everything he could to make his country win the game... . But what happens? . Another failure by the bowlers.. Another chance to blame the skipper! . They say being MSD is tough.. . They say the truth!"
While Dhoni's captaincy is under severe scrutiny, he has had a forgettable series with the bat where he has scored just 52 runs from 4 innings.
