Dhoni's batting in last 30 ODI's!

Recommended Posts

Never seen any other player being given a guaranteed spot for a world cup despite an extended period of mediocre performance. Selectors should have given him ultimatum in 2015 itself to reveal his retirement plans from ODIs after he retired from tests. Typically players who quit tests do so to save themselves for an impending world cup and retire after the tournament. Dhoni OTOH is set on playing a world cup 4+ years after retiring from tests. No other cricket board will allow such a luxury to any player regardless of their past history. This is not fair to other players who toil for days in the most demanding format and put lot of wear and tear on their body. Imagine if Virat retired from tests today and played only ODIs. He could easily play till 40 and score 30-40 centuries more. BCCI should make a rule that any player who retires from tests has to retire from LOI format also within six months. Only then can they prevent players picking and choosing easier formats.

What if he shows his intention of continuing playing post wc?
Do the bcci official s have balls to drop him?
I don't think so,i think he wont go after wc ,given ,India reaches atleast final


I think the selectors have dropped him the word.
Mazaa dekhoge retirement ke baad.
He"ll be worse than Master Blaster, I tell ya

last time when i hid his strike rate it was hovering around 67 @philcric 

if it is 74 now , he is back to his usual best :p:

 

if i am not wrong , his SR in his last game was above 140

 

 

The sample set was probably different.

 

In the last 5 games he scored 50 off 51 balls :adore:   but that wouldn't increase the SR from 67 to 74 over 25-30 matches.

What are these big $hitty things Tendulkar has done after retirement?

He most likely will continue for 6-12 months more after the world cup. Maybe it is a clause in his sponsorship deals that he has to be an active international cricketer or something. He doesn't want to retire at all even after running out of places to hide.

DHoni scored his last match winning 50 way back in Sept 2017, thats 16 months ago. If you notice, in these 16 months, his PR team has made the most noise about his quick silver stumpings, and how greatly he is guiding Kohli and the young spinners.

 

More work coming up for this team as Pant's superlative test performances start to break the door open.

Those cricbuzz paid PR stooges did take a shot at Pant every now and then in the test series.

Dhoni is the biggest scammer of all time. This guy is corrupt involved in ipl fixing, has close alliance with corrupt boss, defended shamelessly the kingpin of ipl fixing saying him as enthusiast. Loosing odi matches shamelessly single-handadly one after another since wc15. Prohibiting youngsters to get in to the indian team . Never keep up to the preaching which he enchanted during senior exclusion from the team. last but not least never seen any player paying cricket  when his hair and beard both turns gray, he is on the verge of getting motiyabind at this age and it will eventually cost us world cup. Thank you.

dhoni is like a bitter pill .. we need him to solve our deficiencies in the lower middle order  

Oh yes velu. Let us make fictional narratives without giving two hoots to objective reality .:p: In our so called middle order, in the same time period, Jadhav averages 30.7 @93 and is a bowling option,  DK averages 49.66 @71 and Rayudu 56 @ 90.74 . Granted they all have their flaws but lol at Dhoni solving deficiencies when he is the weakest link. :hysterical:

Thats a good point Velu. I wouldn't mind if he bats up at no.4 to give him more time to go over the process of giving calmness to the dressing room :cantstop:

We saw what happened at 4 in Asia cup, flopped against minnows BD and Afghans. The shrewd schemer that he is, immediately moved to 5 and below so that his PR team can keep pushing the point that he’s still batting in the lower order for the team’s interest.

The worst part is Australian bowling attack is not going to have Starc, Cummins or Hazlewood or even Stanlake. He's going to make some cheap runs at a low strike rate here to prove he's still got IT. Also please remember his dropped catches in the Asia Cup. A mediocre team like Pakistan can't capitalise on that but stronger teams will punish us mercilessly.

3 years back, when Dhoni was still somewhat better than he’s been since, in the ODI series in Aus, in an attack missing Starc, Hazelwood and Cummins, he scored 86 runs@17 in 5 ODIs. Before that, in the tri series in 2015 before the WC, scored 70 runs@23 in 4 ODIs.

 

He’s been absolutely trash in Aus against top sides and this series will not be any different.

He can only score runs against Lankan trundlers like perera.

He's batting at a slower s/r so that others can bat around him :dance:

He will perform against better teams. Those games he didn't perform, it was a team failure. Nobody batted well. He is a classic team man. He will go out and finish them like Shaz says who is another team man. He has great seniors to look up to like Sachin and Saurav and a coach like Shaz who didn't look for individual milestones but team interests at heart :phehe:

DK at strike rate 71 is another joke.  Why does Kohli backs such outdated players is baffling.

Yep. Absolutely. I'm not a fan of Rayudu's but atleast he has the numbers lol. 

That was boosted because of one match. In all other matches he was average and below average. In the final, mortaza owned him. And numbers have sucked in all other matches. His s/r was pitiful in the quadrangular matches as well last year

No one is there to replace him unfortunately. Yes Pant did well in tests but failed miserably in LOIs and world cup is not a stage for experimentation. We need experienced GOAT like Dhoni in WC and not a young lamb like Pant. He should baby sit Ziva Dhoni during world cup so that Shakshi Bhabhi gets some free time alone.

 

Also there was a video from team India practice session yesterday. Dhoni looked in superb touch in nets against professional throwers. I foresee an epic series coming from Mahi (aka Maar Raha hai)

Are you serious or being sarcastic? Sometimes it's difficult to find the line..
