New Delhi: Former Pakistan skipper Wasim Akram feels that Mahendra Singh Dhoni should continue as the India captain but he should be more flexible in his tactics.

"I am positive that Dhoni is the right choice to remain as captain, but he has to be more flexible in his tactics. You cannot throw the ball to a novice like Ravichandran Ashwin, like Dhoni did in Kolkata, and expect him to produce miracles," said Dhoni.

"If the team management feels that a policy of split-captaincy would release the pressure on Dhoni, then maybe there is a need for change. But personally I would still have Dhoni over next-in-line Virat Kohli, who is too young to lead Team India."
