Indian skipper MS Dhoni banned for slow over rate

India captain MS Dhoni’s problems fail to cease in Australia as after a dismal perform with the bat, he’s been given a 1 Test ban for maintaining slow over-rate in the 3rd Test here, which India lost on the 3rd day by an innings and 37 runs.

The ban comes into instant impact, which indicates India will not have the service of their regular captain MS Dhoni in the 4th and last Test of the series against Australia at Adelaide, beginning January 24. In that event, vice-captain Virender Sehwag, who too has had a dismal perform with the bat in Australia, will lead the team.

India, who’ve already lost the 4 Test series 3-0, will try to save face in Adelaide by avoiding a 2nd straight whitewash abroad after losing the Test series to England 4-0 a few months ago.
