Dhoni stumped by own team

India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni embarrassingly forgot the name of one of his own players at the toss for Saturday's World Cup opener against Bangladesh on Saturday.
Dhoni was stumped by TV interviewer Ravi Shastri as they stood in the middle at the Sher-e-Bangla stadium when the name of omitted left-arm pace bowler Ashish Nehra escaped him.
"(Ravichandran) Ashwin, (Piyush) Chawla, (Suresh) Raina and.... one other guy won't play," smiled Dhoni, after being asked to name his team line-up.
Nehra had been suffering from a sore back.
