For how Long can MSD be the captain due to the TINA factor?

Recommended Posts

On a serious note, the alternative to Dhoni would be a senior player as a makeshift captain (like Kumble was) - the only options are Sehwag and Zak - and then appoint a proper captain after grooming him for a year (Gambhir, Kohli or whoever).

Other seniors like Zak & Viru themselves are not captaincy material. Either you keep Dhoni as captain for another couple of year and then hand it over to Kohli or you hand over captaincy to Kohli now.

No point keeping Dhoni for another couple of years. There's no harm if we have a makeshift captain and see some fundamental changes.

He kept himself under control after his dismissal today. No MC-BC to the umpire :cantstop: If Ashwin becomes captain, Harbhajan can retire :cantstop:

Disagree. Folks like Gambhir and Kohli would be good captains. They are passionate players and no matter what they, and their team, will never give up. They will always play with an edge and the team will fight for them.

Dravid & Laxman kinds were a bit laidback. I prefer captains to show a bit more fire out in the middle. Kohli showed he could handle the team and captaincy while winning the WC at u-19 level. He could easily handle Indian captaincy and there's no reason to believe he won't be able to handle the pressure of captaincy.

India has had different captains for different formats in the past. Is this a new belief system that you are aware of?
Only when Kumble was captaining in Tests and Dhoni in ODIs. Other than that?

i saw panic in ipl and im seeing him being more and more pissed at himself after every failure as captai that can be bad trust me it isnt being laid back ..there is nothing laid back abt dravid ..only thing i saw was determination nit only while playing but as way i lived and handeled himself..every one feels dissapointed and gets angry its abt dealing with it properly rather then going mc ,bc yes if it works for u good but it definately does not work when u have to deal aith other people will he again go after balaji and shout at him in last over?

What do you mean other than that? You dismissed the possibility of it happening citing it to be against BCCI's beliefs when it has clearly happened before.

I want Kohli to be given a fair shot at captaincy. The guy knows how to handle adversity which he has showed numerous times and the quality which a leader needs to possess. He handled his father's demise in the middle of a game, he took the u-19 team to a WC title leading from the front, he came back to Indian team strongly after his first stint wasn't that successful and has gotten better. He clearly is someone who is always up for a fight and never gives up. In Aus he was probably the only one still fighting till the end. People say that the team takes the identity of its leader and if the Indian team takes even some of the qualities of Kohli as a fighter we will do just fine. Gambhir would do just fine as well but he's not an automatic choice and I'm not even sure how long he will last at intl level.

After Raina was given the captaincy for one match in CLT20 in the CLT20 section. http://www.indiancricketfans.com/showthread.php?t=289608
That was only ICF talk. These talks happen all the time. I really don't see Indian selectors having three different captains in three formats for a long term. A T20 captain is anyway just a ceremonial post, only the T20 WC matters. Otherwise it is hardly played, nor is any importance given to those T20s.

there is nothing leader like abt shouting at bowler and abt under 19...its different game team was good and ofc he knows his cricket anyway my opinion is it should be some one like pujara in tests and gambhir in odis

Ufff! Did I say it has never happened? Traditionally, in the Indian team captaincy has gone to the guy who's a sureshot selection in both the formats (Tests and ODIs). This was just an exception because Kumble was a makeshift captain and Dhoni was being groomed to take up his position.

You are trying to portray things as if it's some long term vision of the BCCI. Ever since the dichotomy of captaincy started in international cricket India had Ganguly and Dravid as it's captains both of whom were good enough to have a spot in either side. Dravid was anyways a long term vice captain so was expected to take over. Next came Kumble and he was confined to test cricket because he did not have a spot in ODIs and then we've had Dhoni.

If I remember correctly, Ganguly was preferred over Jadeja as VC since he was a sureshot selection in both formats. Ditto for Dhoni. He was selected as the captain of the T20 team over Yuvraj since he was a sureshot selection in both formats. India has never appointed two different captains in two different formats longterm. It happened during Kumble/Dhoni only because Kumble was a makeshift captain and wasn't playing ODIs.

Maninder Singh laying into MSD's field placing and strategy. Says he sets fielding for spinners according to his own batting technique. :cantstop: if I was the bowler I would struggle to bowl with those kind of field placings.
