Dhoni doubtful for Sri Lanka ODI, says BCCI source

Mumbai: Indian skipper MS Dhoni, who did not keep wickets against the West Indies during the team's tri-nation series opener in Jamaica on Sunday after sustaining a hamstring injury while batting, is to be examined by the doctors before deciding future course of action.

"Dhoni is not feeling good. He is going to be examined. He has a hamstring issue," a source in the BCCI said here.

Dhoni handed over the wicket keeping duties to teammate Dinesh Karthik in their opening match last night, which was won by the West Indies by one wicket at Sabina Park, Kingston.

India are to take on Sri Lanka on Tuesday at the same ground and the source said that the selectors would take a call on the matter once his injury is assessed.

"The selectors will decide once the report is finalised. He won't be asked to return yet. One match is over and only three or four games (if India make the final) remain," he said.
