Kolkata: Indian cricket team’s head coach Ravi Shastri today again backed former india skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni by saying that those who have opened their mouth against two-time World Cup winning captain should better look at their individual career first.

Former India players like VVS Laxman, Ajit Agarkar and others recently said that Dhoni should think about retiring from the shortest format of the game which created a lot of buzz in the cricket fanatics.

“People should look back at their career before commenting on Dhoni. The captain has a lot of cricket left in him and it is the duty of the team to back the legend,” Shastri said.

Shastri further said that the Indian cricket team needs Dhoni in the field for a long period of time.

“There is no one better than Dhoni on the field given his ability behind the wicket and with the bat and his presence of mind and sharpness on the field.”

Shastri lauded the players’ athleticism and said: “In terms of fielding this team is the very best in the world at the moment and that’s something that separates this team from Indian teams of the past.”

India will take on Sri Lanka in three Tests beginning with the Eden five-dayer on November 16, and this will be Shastri’s first home Test series.

“This team always turns up on the park to win. We hope to win the series spread over one and half months before going to South Africa.”

Hardik Pandya has been rested for the series and Shastri said: “This team is not about one particular individual, we lose together, we win together.”

Earlier with bowling Coach Bharat Arun, Shastri spent a couple of hours time at the Fanattic Sports Museum of sports historian Boria Majumdar.
