Former India cricketer Wasim Jaffer on Wednesday said that the Men in Blue can’t afford to look beyond a fit Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Jaffer, who recently retired from all forms of cricket feels that the former Indian skipper (Dhoni) is an ‘asset for the team. The right-handed batsman also said that Dhoni behind the stumps would take the pressure off from KL Rahul.“If Dhoni is fit and in form I think we can’t look beyond him as he’ll be an asset behind the stumps and also lower down the order. It’ll take the pressure of keeping off Rahul and India can play Pant as a batsman too if they want a lefty,” Jaffer tweeted.
