Captaincy in all formats creating problems for MSD, say former Australian skippers

New Delhi: Former Australian World Cup winning captains Allan Border, Steve Waugh and Ricky Ponting are of the opinion that leading India in all three formats of the game is troubling Mahendra Singh Dhoni, especially in Tests, and Virat Kohli must be groomed to take over the Test captaincy.

"Probably it is because he plays a lot, ranging all the three forms of cricket. He is a highly competitive guy and handles the pressures in ODIs and T20s really nicely. But the Tests are a different ball game," Waugh said.

Ponting said that tactical and strategic changes will help Dhoni, whose team lost back-to-back away Test series in England and Australia.

'A tough character'
Border also echoed the duo's sentiments. "Dhoni is a tough character. Particularly in Tests, he should be more active and should not let the game drift away," said Border.
