MS Dhoni should play domestic cricket & get back to form: Sunil Gavaskar

Indian cricket team Ex-Captain MS Dhoni has not been in his best form in last couple of matches. Despite some of his best cricket strokes in IPL (Indian premiere League), the former captain has not shown his best performance in international cricket.
Sunil Gavaskar, the former captain has an advice to Dhoni in order to improve his performance. He wants Dhoni to play some matches in the Domestic ground so that he can get back to his old form and stake his claim in Indian team.
Absolutely (when asked if Dhoni should feature in domestic cricket). Dhoni should be playing domestic cricket and should be playing the four-day games as well because he will help so many of the emerging players from Jharkhand,” Gavaskar told a leading English fortnight publication.
“In the 50-over game you have limited opportunities but if you play a four-day game and play a long innings its great for your stamina, for your legs, for the rhythm that you want in limited-overs cricket,” he contuined.
Dhoni has been an significant member with the side as he is the go-to man for Virat Kohli or Rohit Sharma in order to forge any tactical play, but his sluggish form with the bat has been a cause for worry for India, more so in the death overs, a phase which has troubled India for quite some time now.
This year Dhoni has aggregated just 189 runs in 9 ODI innings at a paltry average of 27 with a highest score of just 42 and this is impeding India from getting the explosive finishes to the innings, which has come back to bite the team quite over, especially in England.
