The wicket-keeper batsman was recently dropped from the T20I series against West Indies, and also missed out on a place in the side for the drawn T20I series against Australia.

Singh, who played 136 ODIs - believes that India should stick by the former captain, who famously helped India to World Cup glory in 2011. Speaking to Sport360, Singh said: “Dhoni should be there (at the World Cup). Those who were given opportunities have not stamped their authority.”

“India are one of the front-runners. England are a very good side, they have been playing very good cricket. In their conditions they are extremely good,” said Singh.
