Actually i felt that selectors should have rested dhoni instead of sachin. i dont know why dhoni is playing with his injured fingers, actually the injury is affecting inhis keeping. at least he should give the keeping job to karthik. he is afraid to field and make mistakes in field, because he is having some good injury in his fingers. if he is keeping no one will see it and will not be commented. he should have left the captaincy to viru and should have taken rest for at leat one match. but i don think that this as a fair move to hide injuries and say that i am fit to play. where is the team management, why don they talk with him, advice him. actually we need our captain fully fit,so why dont he take it seriously?

There is too much pressure in being an Indian captain mate, Sachin also had some kind of injury , i read it somewhere.Actually there was no need of having this tri series after tough test series .I mean players are also humans after all, playing a one day just after 2 days of fighting cricket , its very tough .If Dhoni would have taken rest this time i am sure there would be a big story and all in Indian media that , he is not taking rest for champions league , so he prefers money over country and all that.This happened when Dhoni didnt play a test series with the reason of having rest and media along with many former players raised the question on his commitment towards country.I think fat rats like Rajeev shukla of BCCI who cant even walk a mile properly can never feel how much it hurts to play a one day just two days after a tough test match.After this series there is champions league followed by very busy schedule against tough teams.This tournament could have been avoided , i am afraid no other important player gets injured .I wont be surprised on India's early exit from this tournament if that happens .Dhoni and teammates being tough guys will bounce back, but this is a real torture not cricket.

oh thats a point. if he takes rest know then media and people will say that he has taken rest to play in champions league. but actually in this cricketing season, inida has played lot of matches. and dhoni is defenitely need rest at this time, thats what i mean.

Hello, Selectors have done a big mistake by not giving rest to the INDIAN captain M.S.DHONI. Dhoni should have declared himself unfit for the game.It is not possible to play for him with his injured fingers.At least he should have given the wicket keeper position to Dinesh Karthick.So I think DHONI needs some rest.The captaincy should be given to the hands of Suresh Raina. If luck works better for the Indian team they can win the TRI-SERIES.

surely if he was injured then he should have taken rest. he was playing with injuries on that odi, me too felt so. but i was surpraised why he didnt give keeping to karthik even after he was picked in team. but the big series against australia will be in trouble if dhoni is not playing.
