Pakistan batting legend Zaheer Abbas feels that under-fire India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni should take a break from Twenty20 captaincy to reflect on his game.

“He (Dhoni) should give up the Twenty20 format. He should remain part of cricket, but as ODI and Test captain. He is your Captain Cool and needs some time,” said Abbass.

“The Indian batting and bowling line-ups are not what they used to be.

Weak bowling attack

We have always seen that the Indian batting has won you matches but they can’t do anything if your bowlers don’t perform,” said Abbas on the sidelines of the CEAT cricket awards on Friday night.

Abbas said the hosts looked jaded after playing too much cricket in the past few months.

“The Indian team is playing a lot of these days. They don’t have any problem as such, it’s just they need some rest. If you give them some rest in the days to come, you will see them performing excellently again.” — PTI
