Chasing an achievable score of 251 made by Pakistan in the 2nd ODI at Kolkata’s Eden Gardens,Team India collapsed at 165 all out,allowing Pakistan a series win (Pakistan wins 2 out of 3 match series) and helping Pakistan retain the record of being unbeatable for India at Eden Gardens .
While,England’s tour to India and a massive Test Series victory over India raised questions on M.S.Dhoni’s ability to captain all three formats and critics claiming a new captain for Test Formats , the One Day Series loss at home by Pakistan may put Dhoni’s captaincy, in all formats, under clouds of strong criticisms!
Just a thought,what might Didi tell Dhoni after Team India’s loss at Eden

West Bengal chief minister,Mamata Banerjee, has approached the major opposition party of the Centre,the BJP, to ask them to support her party,TMC , in their efforts to bring a ’ no-confidence motion’ against the UPA 2 govt in the upcoming Winter Session of the Parliament !
Congress,on the other-hand has had as many lunches and dinners as possible with Mayawati and Mulayam Singh Yadav,chiefs of BSP and SP parties,respectively,to make sure the calculation of retaining the govt in power does not fall short, at any cost !
Well, looks like,Didi(Mamata Banerjee) is in mood to teach Congress a lesson and no matter what the outcome be, Congress has become restless since TMC has withdrawn support from the govt !

This time it is Union Minister of Rural Development,Jairam Ramesh,who has pissed off Mamata Banerjee,the Bengal Chief Minister. In one of her interviews,in the recent past, she had referred the Central Govt as ‘brain-dead’ and using the same as a sarcastic weapon,Jairam,while addressing an official letter to her.
Didi was irked to the level that she shared the letter on her facebook account terming the sarcastic statement as unconstitutional.
Well, when its Mamata Banerjee,you need to give it a thought before attacking her(even sarcastically),no matter even if you are a Union Minister ! Hopefully,this is a lesson for Jairam Ramesh !
