New Delhi: Sunil Gavaskar believes Mahendra Singh Dhoni is still the best bet to captain India in Tests and wants the BCCI to wait for some time before zeroing in on the candidate who may be suitable to take over from him in future.
Criticised for his unimpressive captaincy and performance in Test cricket, Dhoni has offered to quit the leadership role in the longer format of the game if the BCCI feels there is a better replacement waiting in the wings.
However, Gavaskar feels there is no reason to hurry and Dhoni is still the best bet for the job. "Dhoni obviously must have felt deeply the 4-0 loss of India. So what he wanted to say is that he is ready to play under a captain if the BCCI can get one, and that is exactly what you expect from a team man like him," Gavaskar told 'NDTV'.
