Dhoni to undergo fitness test

Napier: India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who skipped the second Test against New Zealand with a back injury, will undergo a fitness Test on Wednesday to assess his chances of playing the third and final match in Wellington.

Virender Sehwag, who led here in Dhoni's absence, could not confirm Dhoni's participation in the final Test starting on Friday and said, "I don't know. I don't know yet but he (Dhoni) will give his fitness Test day after."

Dhoni took part in the team practice ahead of the second Test before pulling out due to the injury and Sehwag, though tipped off the previous night, was asked to lead the side barely hours before the toss took place.

Sehwag was in fact wearing Dhoni's blazer when he went out for the toss of coin.
