Hobart: Pakistan pace legend Wasim Akram has backed Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s controversial rotation policy, saying that there is “good reason” behind the move as senior players are either not in his control or they have become a liability.

Dhoni’s remarks about senior players being slow fielders have triggered speculation that there are dissensions in the Indian dressing room.

Akram said Dhoni’s comments are an “absolutely genuine” opinion. “In my opinion, Dhoni is a very intelligent person and I totally agree with him because he says what he thinks. There must be a very good reason behind his comments. I have never heard Dhoni speaking in such a manner,” Akram told espnstar.com. “I think either the seniors are not in his control or they are a liability,” he said.

The former Pakistan captain feels Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag will have to be physically fit to sustain themselves in the ODI format.

“As the grounds are big in Australia, players have to be in the best of their health to play. Nobody questions Tendulkar’s fitness, either you see him fielding at short third-man or fine-leg. You can hide your fielders in Test and T20s but not in ODIs,” Akram explained.

Akram also questioned the role of coach Duncan Fletcher in team selection. “If I am the coach, I will send the best batsman to open the innings. Gautam Gambhir has scored in 90s twice in the series so far and he is the best opener available. It is up to the team management to decide who will be his opening partner.”
