Pune, Dec 11: Luck is not favouring Team India skipper MS Dhoni anymore, as he is at the receiving end since the last one year, especially after the twin losses against England at home in the ongoing Test series against England.

The recent comment from Dhoni about not ready to give up captaincy did not go well with former selector Mohinder Amarnath. The former Indian cricketer said that Dhoni has no right to decide his future and it was the selector's job to decide upon players' future.

Amarnath blasts MS Dhoni

"Who is Dhoni to decide about his future as a player and not as skipper? It is the selectors' job to decide whether he will be in the team or not," Amarnath said on Monday, as reported by DNA.

Mohinder Amarnath criticized Dhoni for not performing well in the last one year.

Dhoni has not reached the three-figure mark since Nov 14, 2011. Moreover, he has scored just 348 runs off the last 7 Tests in 2012 with a highest score of 73 at an average of 34.80.

"I have nothing against him but tell me, what has Dhoni done in the past one year after winning the World Cup? Unfortunately, he has been in the team only on past records," he added.

"A wicketkeeper-batsman stands more than 30 yards away from the bowler and other fielders, so how can he communicate with them? Moreover, I feel there are better wicketkeeper-batsmen than Dhoni in the country," added Amarnath, who had to take over as chief selector after Krishnamachari Srikkanth but Sandeep Patil was chosen as the chief selector of the selection committee.
