Leicester: Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni could be suffering from "sore hands" causing his wicketkeeping to deteriorate on the present England tour, is the verdict of former England wicketkeeper Paul Nixon.
Nixon, who on Saturday night retired after powering his Leicestershire team to domestic Twenty20 title triumph, has also been an England wicketkeeper in the past and is the one who helped Dhoni out with his keeping when he first came on tour to these shores in 2007.
"It looks like he has sore hands. He's too proud a guy to show it but he has sore hands. Otherwise, he is very aggressive and sure in his catching but (on this tour) he's been giving a lot," Nixon said this morning.
