Sanjay Manjrekar is among the latest to join the MS Dhoni debate. And, he is of the view that Dhoni’s spot in the team is very much debatable.

"If there is someone outside the team showing potential to contribute more than Dhoni does in his current form, it's a matter to be discussed and debated, and without inviting angry and irrational responses. It's healthy for the game and must not be stifled," Manjrekar was quoted as saying in an ESPNcricinfo report.

Manjrekar took to statistics to make a point. "In the last 25 ODIs Dhoni averages 56.75 and his strike rate is 81.94. In his last ten T20Is Dhoni averages 33.80 and his strike rate is 131.01," he explained

"Deeper scrutiny of these numbers and clinical observation of his performance on the field would reveal that he is not the game changer as often as he was in the past," Manjrekar further wrote.
