Mumbai: MSK Prasad-led Indian team selection panel are reportedly said to be unhappy on MS Dhoni captaining during the team’s Asia Cup Super Four game against Afghanistan in September.

The Men in Blue had clinched the trophy for the seventh time by beating Afghanistan in the final on September 28 in Dubai.

 

After beating both Pakistan and Bangladesh in the Super Four clash, India had rested stand-in skipper Rohit Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah among other top players for the dead rubber. The match ended in a tie and was not followed by a Super Over.

"The selectors are not pleased that wholesale changes were rung in for the match and both stand-in captain Rohit Sharma and vice-captain Shikhar Dhawan sat out with MS Dhoni forced to be captain again, out of nowhere,"a BCCI source was quoted saying by India Today.
