    Mohinder Amarnath : Selectors wanted to drop Dhoni Unanimosly

    Just saying on CNN IBN that they wanted to replace Dhoni with Kohli as ODI skipper and Sehwag in tests, but the board intervened and stopped it.

    These are interviews from yesterday, but he has gone further today saying they were overruled by the BCCI president N Srinivasan as per constitution.

    MS Dhoni retained as captain against selectors' wish: Mohinder Amarnath - Sport - DNA

    Dhoni Does Not Deserve Place in Team: Mohinder Amarnath, by PTI

    Just ftr, Mohinder Amarnath was in line to become the next Chief of Selectors after Srikkanth but was axed from the committee widely believed because of his earning to sack Dhoni.

    ^ Heard about all that.

    BCCI probably can spin a lot of money out of MSD through sponsorships and TV viewings.

    N Srinivasan is pretty openly a fan of MSD too.

    It's Indian politics all over again. Seeps into every aspect of Indian life really; and it's no new surprise that the BCCI is corrupt.

    Frankly don't get why they wanted to sack him for the ODI tri series, but the whole Chennai Super Kings connection between Srinivasan, Srikkanth and Dhoni was a mess waiting to happen.

    yeah this was on cricinfo today....itstl
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    According to Cricinfo, Amarnath didn't want to drop MSD for ODIs, but for Tests only.

    "I think he should be replaced in Test cricket. I am not talking shorter versions. He is an asset there, he has done very well, he is a match-winner, but with the technique he has I don't see him do any wonders in Test cricket.
    Maybe just wanted to remove him of captaincy to ease his burden/groom Kohli for Tests? Doesn't sound like the craziest idea. Give Kohli a couple of years as ODI skipper, and then when Sehwag moves on you have a Test skipper available.

    All of a sudden he decides to come clean on this now. Reeks of opportunism. Would have appreciated him if he had resigned in protest when this happened.

    Did they actually want to drop him or just sack him as captain?

    Sack him as ODI captain for the tri series, and then maybe drop him from the test team from what he has said.

    Though they still had to discuss about the test team when it was up for selection later.

    Well, he does mention that the Board president can overrule the selection committee's suggestions. At least he's saying something now, more than can be said for so many sycophantic ex players.
