MS Dhoni's Fitness An Issue Ahead of Asia Cup Opener


A cloud of uncertainty over Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni's availability threatens to disturb the side's momentum going into the tournament-opener against Bangladesh in Dhaka today.

Dhoni has suffered a muscle spasm during the team's training session yesterday, prompting the BCCI to rush Parthiv Patel as his back-up.

The skipper's fitness is a concern going into today's match against the sprightly hosts, who have built a reputation of being giant-slayers on more than one occasion.
