Former captain Bishan Singh Bedi Monday called Mahendra Singh Dhoni "half a captain" of India's limited overs team and said his absence made skipper Virat Kohli "visibly rough" on the field during the fourth ODI against Australia.
Dhoni has been rested for the last two games of the five-match series. With the series tied at 2-2, the decider will be played in Delhi on Wednesday.
"I am nobody to comment but we all are wondering that why Dhoni is being rested and his absence was felt yesterday, behind the stumps, with the bat and on field also. He is almost half a captain," Bedi told PTI at a reception organised by the Australian High Commission for its cricket team.
