'Rest Dhoni from Champions League'

George Binoy

Shouldn't the board secretary sacrifice the interests of his IPL team for the larger interest of Indian cricket, asks Pradeep Magazine in the Hindustan Times.

The body is bruised, the mind jaded by playing more cricket than anyone else has in this India team and it is a marvel that he [Dhoni] has still not broken down. Should we allow a player of his ability to become a martyr to greed, be it of the player himself or of the board? It is time to rest Dhoni from the Champions League, so that he re-energises himself for another round of strenuous challenges ahead.
