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 🙂
Well, is it just an excuse to divert criticisms against himself or a genuine feedback about Gambhir,only Dhoni knows but this clearly shows that the continued criticism of ‘Captain Cool’ and his captaincy has snatched away the peace of his mind and now he is in a defensive mood.Anyways,no one in Team India is Sachin Tendulkar that his position in Team India would be guaranteed for lifetime. 🙂
After a disastrous loss of Team India in the second test against England,Master-Blaster,Sachin Tendulkar, is under severe pressure.His performance with the bat has turned real bad and its been 6 innings since consecutively,where he could not perform at all! Speculations are being made that the BCCI selectors had a word with Sachin on his performance and while Sachin Tendulkar has left the decision on the selectors,they,on the other hand,showed confidence in him !
A decade back, the same name-Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar was termed ‘One Man Army’ of Team India,who helped Team India win many matches,single-handedly. It is the same legendary cricketer whose presence in the team makes almost no difference.
Is it just a ‘long bad patch’ of Sachin,as explained by Sunil Gavaskar or is it all over for the 39 year old legend of legends ? 🙁
Briton Ed Hawkins,a sports journalist who has spent several years investigating corruption in cricket,in his yet to be released book-‘Bookie,Gambler,Fixer,Spy’ , has questioned the authenticity of India Vs Pakistan World Cup 2011 Match which India won and eventually the World Cup!
With few Pakistani players, previously, found guilty of being involved in spot-fixing,the claims made in the book cannot be rubbished completely.This may also put Indian Cricket Team’s reputation and achievements to question,as well.
