More said that the India's Test team is likely to find it tough at least till the next year and the selection committee needs to develop a pool of talented cricketers to pick from.
"We need some process going and create healthy competition in the team. You need to have a pool of 25 players with options for fast bowlers, openers, middle order. But
after 2011 we kept on playing with the same team in Test as well in ODIs," said More.
"They could have given a chance to someone like Badrinath or Ajinkya Rahane who are doing well in domestic cricket. We could have had a pool of 10 fast bowlers. We could have created backup for Zaheer Khan, Ishant Sharma and Umesh Yadav
but that didn't happen. We need to learn these lessons.
"The new selection committee will have to work hard and create a good Test team for the future. I think the Test team will struggle for a year and a half. In ODIs and T20s we will do well," he added.
The former cricketer also defended Dhoni, saying he has a lot of cricket left in him to play in all formats of the game.
"Dhoni has lot of cricket left. He is an outstanding cricketer. Overall the team is not doing well. As a player he is still good enough to play in all forms of the game," insisted More.
