New Delhi: Former Indian selector Mohinder Amarnath said that the selectors were  thinking of sacking Mahendra Singh Dhoni after Indian team’s poor performance in Australia. India lost all the four Test matches in Australia following their 4-0 whitewash in England.

“Definitely, there were discussions to replace Dhoni and people had even agreed to do so, but for some internal reason it didn’t happen. I would not like to divulge what the reasons were,” Amarnath said in an interview to Times Now.

Meanwhile, a report in The Indian Express says that Mohinder Amarnath, the North Zone selector, Central Zone’s Narendra Hirwani and East Zone’s Raja Venkat wanted to remove Dhoni from captaincy. But they did not had the support of chairman Srikkanth and West Zone selector Surendra Bhave said Raja Venkat to The Indian Express.

“Sanjay Jagdale, the BCCI secretary and convener of the national selection committee, consulted BCCI president N Srinivasan who shot down the proposal. Srinivasan made it clear that though the majority of selectors felt that Dhoni didn’t inspire confidence as Test skipper, the time was not right to remove him,” Venkat said.
