I think kohli and nabi was also playing on the same pitch, it's about intent and capability and I think current dhoni lacks both.

 

WE call these kind of analysts as "Scorecard Analysts" :giggle:

if a player A bowls well in a game , it doesnt mean player B ( who might be a better bowler  than A ) will also bowl well

So apart from Kohli, Who else from Indian batting unit managed to time the ball? Just asking.

Apart from kohli who batted fir maximum overs. Dhoni came to bat around 20th over and batted till 46 overs. Kohli hot out in 30th and jadhav played till 50th overs. So basically jadhav and dhoni are the one who screwed us.

Dhoni and torture should not mix in the same sentence. Dhoni the Professor should be in the same sentence. This guy brings in good intel to the team. He solely wins India games with his years worth of knowledge. 

Bhai are we playing against aliens that u need intel from Superman dhoni ? 

Its a game . When u have bat u make runs and rotate strike. Newsflash for you buddy - he doesn’t have that intel ! 

While bowling Kohli has the best attack in contemporary cricket . Fast bowlers who bowl Yorkers and swing ball - no brainless Unmesh .

spinners who have drift etc 

 

fact is we were 30 short . Blame lies on dhoni who didn’t rotate strike . It’s ok not to be able to hit sixes but for heavens sake , 2 runs an over from 40-45 was criminal . Scotland Yard should investigate match fixing

:hatsoff: Man can write a book after his retirement(2023 WC). India needs his services till then. He single handedly took the abuse from B grade Indian fans while A grade fans stood beside him during the tough times, where he had to carry oldies. Eventually he ended up kicking out senior virus like Gambo and Sachin to go on to win CT2013. :aha:

Had Afghan batted first they probably would have got a similar score. Add maybe 10-15 runs more because of the lack for pressure.

 

Now India might have still chased down the total in the 48-49 overs with Jadhav and Dhoni  even if there was a top order collapse. Then the chamhcus would go Gaga over Dhoni playing according to the situation and guiding Jadhav.

 

The point is these guys are so one dimensional that they are not good enough to play according to situation. They would have played the same way regardless of the situation.

 

Lackluster and boring middle order :wall:

Listen Dhoni plays a different brand of cricket that we as humans will never understand. He feels we need to stop runs in order to make more runs later. Cause as you age you start to think slower than a young fresh mind like yourself. So bear with Dhoni. Use his experience to win games.

What can I say? This man is a freaken legend. He is always few steps ahead. Men like him look like they invented the idea of cricket. His understanding of the game is so good that any young player like yourself can become a international cricketer if you follow this man’s advise.

Been saying this ,dhoni lost his mojo long time back in fact as early as 2015 and we have been dragging him for far too long top 3 have been shielding pretty avg batsmen,this hero worshipping needs to stop ,even tendulkar was criticising dhoni,agreed it was tough but to not able to rotate strike on a big ground was criminal,no batsmen barring virat showed intent to be positive,atleast jadhav was looking to be positive dhoni didn't even showed that and was happy playing selfishly putting pressure on virat and ultimately led to virat's dismissal,bc spinner ko maar nhi sakte pacer ke against rotate nhi kr sakte to kya gh..nta  hilane ke liye baithay ho .

Agree. 

 

Still feel that Dhoni can make up his score towards the end. It's the disruption to other batsmen's rhythm that is the bigger issue.

Expecting Not to loose a game against minnows is too much to ask from him.

Nowadays Dhoni should be batting @ 7.He can come in last five overs and hitout otherwise he will use a lot of overs.

:giggle: He can't hit OR get out early

Came ahead to steal Yuvrajs thunder, the entire tourney yuvraj was on fire with the bat, on finals this Dhongi baba wears a badge of courage like he is some airforce chief or something only cause he knew kulasekara was serving some oven hot delicious pies on a flat pitch. He dint want to go down as captain with 0 contribution in a world cup winning cause.

Have history! We won yesterday 

Dhoni was busy on the phone enquiring his family’s safety including his shady brother who was omitted from his biopic   . Pissed off fans were throwing stones at his home for  His 2 pathetic and pointless ducks . Not that I approve of such fan behavior but still.

"Fire of Duck" match before in semis and I would say Muarli would have rattled him. We all know his record isn't great against off spinners. :phehe:

Nice trolling but nothing can beat your Idol getting booed in his own hometown while batting :hysterical::hysterical: That explains alot about him and let's not even go near his captaincy record and whitewashes at home :cantstop:

Dhoni looked like he wanted to remain not out till the end. If Pandya had played a blinder or if Kedar shifted gears to score heavily in the last 4-5 overs, guess who the credit would have gone to. Maybe the team just needs his calm presence on the ground and he is providing just that.
