The extent of Mahendra Singh Dhoni injury is not yet known but the Board of Control for Cricket in India has named wicketkeeper-batsman Parthiv Patel as cover for the Indian captain. He will soon join the team in Bangladesh for the Asia Cup.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni will be a doubtful starter against Bangladesh in the Asia Cup Twenty20 International opener after the Indian skipper suffered a muscle spasm in a training session on Monday.
The 30-year-old left-handed wicketkeeper-batsman, Parthiv Patel plays for Gujarat in the domestic circuit, and has had a good season at home, hitting a century each in Vijay Hazare and Deodhar Trophy tournaments.
Patel, who last played for India in an ODI against Sri Lanka in the tri-series at Brisbane, Australia in 2012, had recently expressed a desire to return to the national team, saying he's always motivated to play for India.
