New Delhi: Just days ahead of the Asia Cup 2016, India's limited-overs skipps MS Dhoni suffered a back spasm during training session on Monday.

The Board of Cricket for Control in India (BCCI) broke the news on Twitter and said that Parthiv Patel has been called as a back up.

Patel last played for India during the ODI triangular series in Australia in February 2012.

The 30-year-old left-hander has been a run-machine for Gujarat lately, and he was their second-highest run-getter in the Vijay Hazare Trophy with 295 runs, including a century and a fifty, which helped the team clinch the title.
