Pakistan has never won against India in World Cup matches ever in the past. Will 2015 World Cup match break this World Cup jinx against India ?
India does it again. Refrains Pakistan from winning against India in World Cup 2015. Jinx intact !!
Shikhar Dhawan has created a buzz in Indian Cricket and has surely reminded Gautam Gambhir and Virat Kohli to perform or perish.Who knows they may have stopped quarreling with each other ! 😀 With fearless attitude on the pitch he looks a promising player and a probable replacement for non-performers of the team.
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 🙂
Sourav Ganguly has written a column on Sachin’s future and Dhoni’s workload.Well,while there is no denial,he is worth discussing about Sachin’s and Dhoni’s future,seems, no one is bothered about Ganguly’s future in Indian Cricket though he has expressed his desire many a times to be the coach of Team India.
After India has lost against England in the Test Series,there has been questions raised on Dhoni’s captaincy and Sachin’s unwillingness to retire!
England broke 28 year old record of beating India in Test Series on Indian grounds and has also served critics of Dhoni’s captaincy to raise their voice, at least, against his Test Captaincy. Sunil Gavaskar,the veteran Indian cricketer, is of the view that its time Virat Kohli replace M.S.Dhoni .
M.S.Dhoni,the Team India captain, is of the idea that Gautam Gambhir is playing a self-centered game and has been bothered about his position in the Team and has not been playing keeping the interest of team in mind.Dhoni has lodged a complaint against Gautam Gambhir with the BCCI,regarding the same!
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. 🙂
Mahela Jayawardena decided to step down as captain from T20 after Sri Lanka lost the final of T 20 World Cup against West Indies. Guess he should learn from Indian Cricketers and Indian Politicians ! 😉 Even India got knocked out even being one of the most well paid teams of the World Cricket,big deal ! Did Dhoni take the blame on himself or Team India ? 😉
