Dhoni, who stunned everyone by quitting the five-day game after the third Test in Melbourne last week, may play in India whites again in case there is an injury to Wriddhiman Saha. (Kohli era begins in Sydney)

India captain Virat Kohli today said Dhoni was on standby for Sydney Test if Saha suffers any injury on the morning of the match. (Kohli stunned by Dhoni's decision)

"Dhoni is the second keeper in the squad as of now. So God forbid if something happens to Saha on the morning of the match, obviously he will have to step in because I can't keep wicket," Kohli said on Monday.

Dhoni retired after playing 90 Tests, 60 of them as captain. He has stayed back with the team.

Australia have clinched the four-Test series 2-0 after wins in Adelaide and Brisbane. The third Test in Melbourne was drawn.

After the Test series, India play a ODI tri-series with Australia and England.
