Dhoni again doubtful for this match
Former Indian captain who is also the skipper of the Chennai Super Kings side is doubtful for today’s clash as well, according to a Cricinfo report.
Dhoni has had to deal with back trouble this season. “Dhoni is progressing,” Super Kings coach Stephen Fleming said on the eve of the match. “He’s been pretty sick during the week. We’ll make a call on him tomorrow but he’s progressing, which is good.”
