Or take a single off the first ball when #8 is batting at the other end.

I actually believed that it was a very good innings and even said that. But after reading this comment I just casually scrolled through commentary of that match. After bhuvi came in, every single over Dhoni took single in first or second ball of the overs chickening the strike back to a tailender so early. Damn!! This guy wants to stay not out. We just got lucky that bhuvi played well and did not throw it away. Thanks. :hatsoff:

When you you still have 100+ runs to score, you don't farm the strike and hit boundaries. Dhoni had faith in Bhuvi's defensive technique, that's the reason he gave the strike to him. Bhuvi mentioned that Dhoni told him to bat like he would do in tests as there were lots of overs and there was no need to hit out. If Bhuvi had gotten out, Dhoni would have done what you said. You cannot farm the strike and score 100 runs with tail, that is never going to happen. If you watch Steven Waugh bat, he would always give a lot of strike to tail enders, one's who are worse than Bhuvi. He chickened out as well right according to you? When you require less than run a ball, Dhoni taking majority of the strike and trying to hit boundaries would mean that India would have fallen behind the run rate or worse would have lost Dhoni.

Usually other teams try their best to deny singles and have to work hard to keep tailenders on strike. And here we have em es dee lunging the tailenders to Lanka with open arms......

Played well. Showed us again that he is capable of playing out overs and nudging towards targets when the run-rate required is not high. Liked his innings in 4th ODI where he and Pandey setup a good target after a mid innings mini collapse. I still reserve my judgement on whether he is still the best option against better opponents on flat tracks.

And this was because Bhuvi was his partner when he made the EPIC 224.

you acutally think we would have won the match had Dhoni tried shielding the strike for 20 overs ? Pretty much every great partnership with tailenders , was only possible when the lesser batsmen was instilled with confidence right from the begining .

Steve waugh pioneered this stratergey .

Nobody's asking to keep farming strike for 20 overs. He straightaway started exposing Bhuvi in first or second ball of the overs. Not at all a fan of this strategy.If you watch the match again SL bowlers started spraying while Dhoni and bhuvi were batting right from the start. This is why we got away with it.

Good point about Steve Waugh. But do not believe in giving confidence to tailenders.If batsman is above average batsman only then it is fine. Bhuvi is a tailender. Don't let his scoring in England cloud your views.

I have responded to almost every one who quoted my posts. I do see that when I call some of the chamchas out they go into hiding and don't respond to my posts. The only person on ICF who I rarely respond to is you. I'll give you this opportunity to do some soul-searching as to why.

Bhuvi the guy who's not known to hit boundaries actually hit boundaries. 5 more than the so called finisher. Thankfully it clicked with bhuvi. Otherwise the result would have been same it was against windies where dhoni was doing so called 'anchoring'  the innings while other batsmen showing intent had to lose their wickets because this guy with his fetish was trying to show off by taking the match to the last over when it should have been done and dusted  roughly 10 overs back.

For once bhuvi taking risks was actually pretty sensible idea. If dhoni takes risks and gets out its almost game over. So no issues there. However he shouldn't have exposed bhuvi to danajay pretty early. He should have kept more strike and then slowly watching bhuvi play start trusting him progressively. IMO this is a proper approach. Showing faith in a below average batsman straightaway is stupid.

Well if you put it that way, I guess out of my goodness nature and beautiful heart, I can give some credit to Dhoni. :nice:

its worked in the end dint it ? We won the match . 

What are we accusing Dhoni off now , that he was hoping Bhuvi and rest of the team gets out and match's done early ? 

if you dont hate the guy , its fairly simple . He thought it was best to give Bhuvi strike right from the beginning , am pretty sure he knew it was a risk  .

You dont like that strategy is that because you have few other fool proof stratergy for such a situation ? then you are right to complain here .

 

When you say we got away cos SL bowlers started spraying , you dont have a 100 run partnership without having some luck , let alone with a tailender even between top order batsmen you still need things going your way .

 

As for Bhuvis batting , IIRC I created a thread on his batting I think a ~year before he debuted for India after I had watched a Ranji game he had played for UP . Big fan , hes not lived up to is potential with the bat but the basics of his batting is better than some of the top order batsmen I have seen , I have not seen much improvement in his batting since the first time may be cos hes not taken it seriously and partly cos bigger names in Ashwin/Jadeja he does not get enough opportunities to build an innings . Still wudnt surprise me if he plays a classy test knock at some point of his career .

Not sensitive at all. But when I know I haven't done it and you and your ilk still keeps blaming me it gets annoying. You have been warned/banned countless times about complaining about mods and yet you continue to do it. You know the right forum is to do it in site feedback. 

 

Word of advice: maybe next time you don't want your threads to be deleted, you shouldnt create sensitive topics like the blue whale game

How will a suitable replacement be found if no one else is tried for any length of time   ?

 

I can understand people wanting Dhoni to play  based on his current ability to play with his team in trouble...... but the " no suitable replacement "  logic is a poor one.
