There is increasing speculation that Mahendra Singh Dhoni will be back to the lead India for Thursday’s final.

Dhoni sustained a right hamstring strain while batting against the West Indies in his team’s first match of the tournament on June 30 at Sabina Park in Kingston and an announcement was made the following day that he was ruled out of the rest of the competition with uncapped batsman Ambati Rayudu being flown in as his replacement.

However Dhoni has remained with the squad, and while there has as yet been no official word, his presence in warm-ups increase the likelihood of him playing.
