Mumbai: West Indian batting great Brian Lara on Friday came out in support of Mahendra Singh Dhoni, saying the under-fire India skipper "deserves another chance" despite the drubbings in England and the ongoing tour of Australia.
"I think he deserves a chance. He had success in the World Cup, the T20 World Cup, the 50 over games. I think given his achievements so far, he deserves another chance and everyone should come out and support him," the 42-year-old left-hander told reporters here.
"Obviously what happened in England and what is happening in Australia, no Indian would be happy with the situation. But a captain has to have the right team for the right condition. Generally it's a difficult period now. However, if you switch the series to India you could see different results," he said.
