Former Pakistan spinner Abdul Qadir has asked Pakistan to take advantage of "internal politics" in the Indian cricket team when they clash with the arch-rivals in a crucial Super Eight match of the World Twenty20 on Sunday.

Qadir felt all was not well with the Indian team as it looks skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni is not getting along with opener Virender Sehwag.

"I don't like to comment on internal matters of Indian cricket but it is a fact that I don't see a very good future for Dhoni after this ICC World Twenty20. There is definite politics and problems within the Indian team," Qadir.

The legendary spinner said it was now obvious that Dhoni was not getting along with Sehwag and some other players.

"There is no way that you cannot play Sehwag in the T20 form of cricket. He is a one man army on his day and very destructive not playing him tells me something is wrong in the Indian camp," Qadir told Geo Super channel.

He said that Pakistan team should take advantage of this situation.

"If there is any problem within the Indian camp it will be good for Pakistan who must take advantage and try to bat second," he said.

Pakistan and India play in the super eight stage tomorrow and a victory for Pakistan could propel them into the semi finals.
