New Delhi: Former Pakistan pacer Wasim Akram on Sunday said that though Virender Sehwag is too good a batsman to be ignored, he needs to be at peace with skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni as he is India's best leader at the moment.
"Dhoni remains India's best leader at the moment and sooner Sehwag realises this, the better. Hence, Sehwag needs to be at peace with him, focus purely on his fitness and the runs shall follow. In cricket, only performance matters and if Sehwag scores the runs he can, fans will automatically adore him," he added.
Reports of rift between Sehwag and Dhoni had erupted in Australia when the captain called the seniors as 'slow fielders'. Sehwag had retorted by saying that Dhoni never told them.
