London: Facing criticism after India conceded a 0-2 lead to England in the ongoing Test series, skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni has found much-needed support in Pakistan pace legend Wasim Akram, who feels he cannot be written off on the basis of a couple of defeats.
"You cannot write him off on the basis of two losses. He has won the World Cup for India and has also done well in most parts of the world. Yes, one thing that Dhoni needs to take care of, are his keeping skills. We can't say that he has failed, rather we can just say that it is a wake-up call for him," Akram told a leading sports website.
Many experts, including former India skipper Sourav Ganguly, have slammed Dhoni's decision to bowl first in the second Test at Nottingham, which India lost by 319 runs, but Akram begs to differ.
