Sehwag Dhoni rift

While the BCCI keeps denying the rift between Team India’s Captain MS Dhoni and Vice-Captain , Virender Sehwag, the ongoing Commonwealth Series has exposed their discontent in the media. Captain’s statment about seniors needed to be more active on field to his rotation policy has all been debated by Sehwag. BCCI terming it as media speculation and terming it as minor difference of opinion may not help Team India’s overall performance.

BCCI vice president Rajiv Shukla when questioned, said, “I don’t think there is any rift within the team. It’s media speculation. We have not asked for any report on this from Australia.”

Recent news confirms that BCCI chief Srinivasan had a word with Team manager asking him about the matter.

Well, reasons might be any but a team which rarely wins and that too with minor margins and mostly losses and with huge should be more bothered on its Team performance rather than playing the blame game. Dhoni has been heard criticizing seniors quite a number of times but he does not speak about the young blood like Sharma,Raina, Yadav and Ashwin. The question is why does he blame only the seniors ? While he plays his knock almost every other match but equally blames only the seniors, on the media. Are the new kids coming to do net-practise in matches, that they should not be questioned ? Other than Virat Kohli, there has been no young player who is consistent at present. Hope the captain is not being partial!

Moreover, it is the captain’s responsibility to co-ordinate and take out the best of all the players. Rotational policies if applied for seniors why do they not apply for other regular non-performers ? Is it just because they are young ? Is it just because they can jump a little higher or may save 20 odd runs on the field? What about scoring them with the bat or bowling  the opponents out ?

At an International level and being a World Cup Winner, a team is expected to be more professional with its approach both on and off the fields. Rather than taking out frustration on team members, the captain and vice-captain should concentrate on improving individual games and overall team performance.

Brett Lee fractures toe

 

How Brett Lee may have fractured his toe in the 2nd Twenty20 between India and Australia ?

Australian Fast – Bowler, Brett Lee is out of Commonwealth Bank Series due to broken foot during 2nd Twenty20 at the MCG on Friday, 3rd February’2012. Lee is expected to be out for four to six weeks due to the fracture of the small toe. He has been replaced by Ben Hilfenhaus who had given trouble to Indian batsmen in the Test Series.

Recalling about the 2nd Twenty20 Match between Australia and India where India recorded its first win, Brett Lee had used his foot to stop a full-connect, straight shot from Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s bat. It was Lee who was bowling to Dhoni and a straight shot hit by Dhoni was intervened by Lee, immediately after which he was noticed shaking his foot, out of pain. Although he completed his last over , Lee’s pain was visible to anyone witnessing the match on their televisions. It may be the impact of the ball which hit directly on his foot that led to the fracture. Australia lost the match, yet they undoubtedly gave a tough fight till the last over of the match.
