    Dhoni: Greatest Indian Cricketer?

    I feel he is already the best wicket keeper batsman of all time, but winning the ct13, t20 world cup 2007, cricket world cup 2011, surely cements him as the best cricketer India has ever produced. That is 3 pieces of silverware, while teams like new zealand and south africa have cobwebs in their cupboards. He is far from finished either. Has an excellent record this year. One match where he couldn't finish it off in a meaningless odi series and people want him kicked. smh. Fans need to have faith, he is here to stay until 2019 world cup. Love you Dhoni!

    The no.4 conundrum

    Dhoni is the singular reason why India's batting looks unsettled even though there is an abundance of talent. Dhoni would still hit the occasional boundaries and sixes to make his fans cream themselves but it's easy to see that his abilities have suffered, irrevocably. He cannot hit out at a sustained rate for any meaningful length of overs. Time to put him to pasture was 2 years ago. With Dhoni gone, Rahul would become doubly important for India's ODI XI. Why? Because, along with Kohli himself, he'd be the only batsman in the team to lend a touch of solidity WITHOUT compromising on strike power. This is the balance that even the current England's ODI team lacks. And this is the balance that WC conquering Australian ODI XIs in 2000s did NOT lack. Eventually, I'd want the Indian XI to look something like this come 2019. Dhawan Rohit Kohli Rahul Pant Krunal Hardik Vijay Shankar/Kuldeep/Chahal Bhuvneshwar Shami Bumrah

    Dhoni: Greatest Indian Cricketer?

    lol based on 1 format and that too the ODI format, what an insult to the real top 5 Indian cricketers. The top 5 Indian cricketers are as follows:- Sachin Tendulkar Kapil Dev Sunil Gavaskar Rahul Dravid Anil Kumble Kohli has a chance to break into the top 5

    One of the Greatest if not the Greatest. His Test Cricket Game, both his batting and captaincy was below average which hampers him from qualifying to be the greatest Indian Cricketer. SRT followed by Kapil Dev are two of the greatest Indian Cricketer's for sheer impact they had on Indian Cricket, on fans, being an inspiration to millions to play the game. So in terms of Greatest Cricketers,here are my top 5 picks. 1) Sachin Tendulkar 2) Kapil Dev 3) MS Dhoni 4) Rahul Dravid 5) Sunil Gavaskar On the outside, Sourav Ganguly for me is the greatest Indian Captain for picking this team up and building the team from dust.

    Don't mix captaincy with other aspects. GOAT in terms of LOI captain. GOAT keeper ATG in ODI batting Avg in test captaincy,test and T20I batting. Far from being the greatest Indian cricketer.

    Kb indian ocean littoral states in mid summer are not for outdoors sport u need to be a special superhuman to bowl 140 all day. The humidity makes the feels like temp 5 degrees more and it usually hovers around 35 to 40 UAEs dry heat can be fought with fluids but not SL TN or Kerala its something else. Geneuinly without trolling only Aussie pacers can out pace Indian pace squad atm in tests.

    The no.4 conundrum

    First of all don't get offended as I was also his fan. Now coming to the topic how can you blame youngster who are not yet sure of their position as we have to accommodate dhoni in between according to situation. Also contributing as captain should not be criteria of selection and as far as keeping is concerned that's his primary role and it is bau for him and least requirement .When we talk about 250 chases he is not winning them alone even last time when we chases 250 in crisis situation Bhuvi outscored him. So please don't give excuse as contributing in captaincy, we need just one captain and if Virar is not good enough he should be replaced with someone more suitable. But dont cry hypothetical stuff which is least require for winning. Also any youngsters need thorough chance to establish himself. What I can see he is hindering a potential talent pant who should have been groomed after ct 17.

    If we can't win Ranji this season with squad we have , I will give up hope we might ever win it again lol. This team should make it to the final at worst. Mukund Vijay Gandhi Karthick Sunder Aparjith or Inderjith Shankar Ashwin Aushik Srinivas or Rahil Shah Vignesh Crist or Natarajan.

    Pakistani fast bowling is a myth now.Who was the last pakistani fast bowler to take 200 test wickets?
  24. 2 points
    He was referring to bowling speeds Both Indian quicks bowled 135 k to 147 k in the last test series in SL .... in hot and humid conditions Pakistani seamers are bowling 126 k to 140 k in this test series.

    Dhoni: Greatest Indian Cricketer?

    Yes obviously workload is a big thing. And that is the reason you see plenty of ATG batsman throughout the world as compared to ATG WKs. Or even rarest of rare who could handle Batting/wk and captainship as well in all 3 formats. Wouldn't there be plenty of other WK/Bat/Captain in the world or Indian history with such numbers, if it was just another regular thing to happen? And yes I agree he was weaker in Test as compared to ODIs, but it will be hard to find another similar package in 1 player for India. That is why he is top 5.

    If exclude last over, Shami bowled very well. Even in the power play, he was very good and he was playing an ODI after a long gap. Cant expect him to just come in start taking wickets

    Im not sure if you are confusing effectiveness with speed because Amir, hassan, wahab can all bowl at 140 plus though they havent been very penetrating in this test so far and mind you pitch is as lifeless as it could be.

    Restrict bilaterals to max 3 matches Play more triangular series Bring back 1 ball rule Remove power plays after 10 overs Allow 4 bouncers in a over in first 10 and last 10 overs. 2 bouncers in remaining 30 overs Bouncer rule will probably make teams think more. Some bowlers will get carried away and likely to be thrashed for sixes over in last 10 overs as batsmen will look to score on misdirected balls. Some bastsmen will be exposed as they miss and play lot of dot balls.

    why has such a useless pitch been created on which captain karthick does not bowl pacers- ridiculous pitch curator and organisers. dont they know that india's achilles heels abroad is Pace not Spin...we cant play patrcik cummins even on indian patta wickets properly..we need to encourage our pacers big time.

    i think Indian fast bowlers bowl faster because of physical ability and lack of it on part of Pak medim pacers totally random physical attributes comparison. pak guess its down to genetics..yeah..

    Why is MSD playing T20? Because he doesn't want anyone to come into the picture, if player like Pant starts smashing in T20, ODI calls will start coming as Dhoni knows he is **** batsman nowdays. Reason he is playing is for money, as he will lose lots of sponsorships he hangs his boots.

    I don't think you have watched much of Umesh in test cricket in the last 15 months or so. A massively improved bowler from his days as a spraygun. Think of him as a faster, better version of workhorse, ahead of Ishant. And one that can deploy reverse-swing to deadly effect when available.
