Nevertheless, former captain Sourav Ganguly backed Dhoni saying he is too good a batsman to be submissive for a long time and will definitely make a strong comeback.

“At the end of the day, MSD is a very good batsman and he will definitely prove that in this year’s World Cup 2019 as well despite his sticky form against Afghanistan. It’s just one match,”

Ganguly was quoted as saying in DNA.

In the low scoring affair, India managed to defeat Afghanistan by 11 runs. MS Dhoni came out to bat with India struggling at 122/3.

Skipper Virat Kohli played a brilliant knock of 67 runs off 63 balls, lost his wicket too in the 31st over. Dhoni therefore added a 57-run stand with Kedar Jadhav  who 52 off 68 balls eventually.

India will face low-ranked West Indies in their coming World Cup match at the Old Trafford on June 27.
