Injuries a real concern: Dhoni
Saturday 17 September 2011

India’s tour of England has been nothing short of nightmarish for MS Dhoni and his boys. And the Indian skipper lamented the several injuries that have prevented the team from performing at their optimal level.

"The big blow on Friday was losing Munaf as he's our bowler at the death. These were difficult situations, but good exposure (for players like Vinay Kumar). These are the players who have been playing in the ODI format for the last six months and many of them are the future," Dhoni, said after the match.

"Definitely we need to manage these injuries. We've lost so many players on this tour," said Dhoni, who was adjudged Player of the Series.

Asked about the weather conditions which saw the target being revised thrice due to intermittent rain, Dhoni said, "I think in quite a few games this happened, but we can't control the weather." he said.
