But Dhoni did well in the second ODI after making his second-slowest fifty in the Sydney ODI, after which his place in the side was under question.

But World Cup winner, Kris Srikkanth feels Dhoni is a must in India's team for 2019 World Cup, which will be played in England and Wales.

"If I was the chairman of the selection committee, I would pick him for the 2019 World Cup for sure. The World Cup is a different cup of tea altogether, where we will need a senior cricketer like him. He'll be a guiding factor on the field His importance will be felt in crunch situations He may not be the big-hitter that he was before ... that's a different issue, but he's still got it in him, "Srikanth was quoted as saying by The Times of India.

Kris feels Dhoni is great as a package and should not be seen as wicket-keeper on a stand-alone basis. "You have to see the importance of Dhoni as a package - not just as a batsman or a wicketkeeper. Debates and ups and downs were always there. You have a match in a hero, and another in a zero. Pant can be in the team as a batsman. Even with Dhoni being in the side, Pont is very good, and will be a big contender for a spot, "said Srikkanth.
