Meanwhile, Arun Pandey, MS Dhoni's manager has given a hint on his retirement.

Kolkata: Former football captain Bhaichung Bhutia Thursday threw his weight behind former cricket skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who is now facing the ire of fans for his waning finishing ability with the bat. While he is mostly remembered for playing with the "Reebok" or the "Spartan" stickered bat early in his career, in the ongoing edition of the World Cup, Dhoni has been seen playing with the SG, the SS, the BAS logo on his bat. "This is something that our global brand ambassador MS Dhoni also believes in", said Lokesh Mishra, COO, Rhiti Group.In the near future, the brand is eyeing further global expansion coupled with investments in research and development of its product portfolio to deliver the best to customers.

Speaking to IANS, sources in the know of developments said that the team management felt that it was apt to use the time travelling from one city to another by discussing strategies with players.

"Look at football World Cup, you would not see Brazil play a team like Holland in five years". The same was shown in Dhoni's biopic story.

"It's a fact that he has been using different bats with different brandings, but he is not charging them".

Rashid Khan fails to live up to billing at Cricket World Cup
Gayle, in fact, was the only frontline West Indies batsman to perish in single figures and the only one who did not strike a six. West Indies started the match in next-to-last place on three points, courtesy of a solitary win over Pakistan and a washout.

Michael Clarke (Image Credit: Getty Images)Clarke recently told India Today, "People haven't learnt by now to not doubt MS Dhoni".

"Right now, India is doing it without MS Dhoni firing". Dhoni has always been a down to earth character and it is a great gesture on his part.

Fans and former cricketers have been left disappointed with the way Dhoni has struggled to score runs at a brisk pace in the tournament, thus questioning his intent and capabilities to collect runs freely and quickly like he used to do in his initial years.

India will play their next match against Sri Lanka at Headingley, Leeds on 6th July.
