"His (Sehwag's) role is very crucial, not to forget the experience that he has got playing in all the formats and also the fact that he still can get us a few wickets. We have not been using him too much in the bowling department but is still someone who can get us a few breakthroughs," said Dhoni.
The India captain said the way Sehwag plays, it is always easy for him to strike form after a lean phase.
"I don't think it is too difficult for someone like him to come back to form. We all know that form is about 15 runs here and there. All of a sudden from a very good run, you get out in 15 deliveries. It's the mindset that helps you get back in the game and that way, I think he is brilliant," he said.
Dhoni said people need more time to understand Sehwag's mindset.
"When it comes to Viru, you need a bit more time to understand him. All the players who have played with him and shared the dressing room with realise the fact that his
mindset is completely different from maybe all the cricketers around the world," the skipper said.
"He is very positive and he backs his stint and looks forward to score runs. It doesn't matter whether the wicket is seaming or turning or doing anything. He goes in with one purpose and that is to score runs," he explained.
