MS Dhoni: 'Pathirana shouldn't even get close to red-ball cricket'

“I personally think he is not someone who should play a lot of red-ball cricket,” Dhoni said at the post-match presentation, almost like a plea to the powers-that-be in Sri Lankan cricket. “I think he shouldn’t even get close to it. Even in white-ball cricket, the 50-over version he should play as less as possible. [He should] play the big ICC tournaments because he is not somebody who will change a lot. This [having an impact in short bursts] is what he will do, so you can always use him at crucial times.
