However, the team management said he was fit and there was no danger to Dhoni, who is all set to lead Team India at his home ground amidst the local fans, who are eagerly waiting to see the city's favourite son in action on Saturday.

"He is perfectly alright. He does not even need to have an X-ray, scan or anything. There is no danger at all," Satish, Indian team manager (logistics), told reporters here on Friday.
