Dhoni to miss first Test against Bangladesh
January 16, 2010Mahendra Singh Dhoni has again been ruled out of a Test match because of back spasms, and Virender Sehwag will be leading the newly crowned number one test team. Sehwag, meanwhile, angered the hosts by terming the tigers as an “ordinary side” adding they do not have the bowling power to take 20 Indian Test wickets. India's batting has been reinforced with the return of veterans Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid and Venkatsai Laxman. In reply, Bangladesh skipper Shakib Al Hasan said that his team is capable of giving a good fight. He added, "India have been ranked number one only recently. I think South Africa and Australia are much better than them."
