In yet another poor showing for Dhoni, the Indian captain scored a duck in the fourth ODI and the side slipped to a 25-run defeat from a very strong position.
Dhoni has been facing a lot of flak for not being able perform the role of a finisher for a long time.
"I would back MS to do the job and he has been doing it for so long now. He is best suited to handle most situations out there. People forget that it is not easy job to do. You cannot just come in and smash 60 off 30 balls every single time. You have got good bowlers, and they have gotten smarter, and they know what Dhoni's strengths are so things will not always happen the same way," Hussey said.

The Australian, known as Mr Cricket, said the young Indian batsmen need to bat around him to learn how to finish close games.
"You cannot expect him to do it every single time, and he has done well for India for such an amazingly long period of time. I would keep back him to do this job for as long as he feels he can do the job. At the same time, India will be looking at their youngsters. In that situation, it would be ideal if they can bat with and around MS, and learn from him how to get through such situations," he said.
