Former players call for MS Dhoni's sacking as Test captain

Srikkanth was of the view that Dhoni will be better of without the captaincy burden from now on. "Dhoni's become stale and doesn't know what to do when things go out of the way. He shouldn't be the Test captain anymore. Had I been the chairman of selectors, I would have picked Dhoni as a wicket-keeper batsman but it is time to look beyond him as a Test captain," Srikkanth said.

Gavaskar said it was time the selectors looked to the future as Dhoni seemed out of sorts in this series.
