I definitely see Mahendra Singh Dhoni playing till ICC 2019 World Cup: VVS Laxman

New Delhi: Former Indian cricketer VVS Laxman on Wednesday predicted that India's limited-overs skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni will be part of ICC's 2019 World Cup.

"I definitely see Dhoni playing till 2019 World Cup as he is super-fit and the reason is that I have never seen him miss a match due to an injury.

“May be, he has had those odd finger injuries here and there. I have no doubt he will be available

till 2019 World Cup. I am happy that he has played seven matches in Vijay Hazare Trophy as he must have needed some preparation under his belt,” Laxman told PTI.

The 41-year-old Hyderabadi also termed Ashish Nehra, who has been recently picked up in the national team after a gap of four-and-a-half years for Australia tour, as a match-winner and feels that the left-arm pacer can do the job for India against the hosts.

"It is very difficult to bowl in the first few overs of T20s and the two of the last four overs. Ashish has done that job often for India. He is still an asset."
