    Talk about devaluing one's own achievement by comparing him to a much inferior player.

    These days Indian cricket feels like a retiremrnt party for dhoni. Everyone comes forward to say a few good words for him. Any one else would like to say a few words about dhoni ji....

    Next weeks headlines in advance: Sunil Gavaskar "I learned how to bat in test cricket from Dhoni", "Satya Sai Baba connected us in spiritual consultation before MS was even born".

    I am sure he learnt a lot by observing Dhoni bat in T20Is. As in he realised how exactly not to bat in this format. No wonder he has won 2 MOTM awards in less than 20 innings while Dhoni is consolidating his way to a 100 T20Is without a MOTM award.

    After 4 years time..... “I guess it comes from experience. That can’t be bought. You learn it over the years – it’s important to stay calm. Karthik is a great example of that. You can see how calm he is, and you learn a lot of things from a lot of people, and one thing I’ve learned from Karthik is how he finishes.” - Rishab Pant

    Everyone has learned everything from Dhoni. My problem is Dhoni has forgotten everything.

    There is seriously something going on here...why does everyone have to throw Dhoni a bone. MSD sucks with on field performances we start hearing that he has been inspiring, he helps spinners take wickets, he does great splits and stumping WTF. Since when has cricket not become about actually performing on the field. As DK rightly said in his PC, He was playing every series like his last and this performance has just earned him a lifeline. Rahul is dropped despite performing every single time...he is literally put in a spot to play for his spot every game. Sundar won the MOS and there is no guarantee he will be in the starting line up next game. All the rookies might never ever play for India.We won’t be surprised if that happens. No guarantee that Pandey will continue or Raina. How come Dhoni’s spot is unchallenged?

    Looks like this is our equivalent of how Pakistani cricketers start every statement with “Allah tallah nein Bahut tailunt diya” ....that’s the way they can survive in the country And diplomatic praise of MSD is their way of surviving in the team. Also does Dhoni only teach or can he accomplish something himself?

    Great day for cricket. Wanna see faces of Aussies who thought they were clever getting him banned. It was nonsense to equate Rabadas shirt brush with the same number of demerit points as Warners near punch up. That decision had racism or stupidity written all over it.

    Dhoni is one big showboat. The match winning six he hit was not needed. Match winning six Dinesh hit was needed. That should tell you the difference.

    Chasing 122 when Dhawan and Kohli had teed off 100 runs in 12 overs! Wah, Kya baat hain! Dhiraj Bahubali!

    India should under no circumstances engage Pakistan in cricket. India's rivalry is with Australia and Australia only. Played cricket with Pakistan for three decades and that did not bring any peace. It will not happen in our lifetime.

    Karthik's was weird. When he came out to bat, the match felt like it was over for all practical purposes. That India had lost. But before Karthik faced the last ball, one almost knew it was going to go for six. Karthik looked possessed.

    In a parallel lifetime, it was suggested that it was unfair to expect Dhoni to deliver MOTM worthy performances in T20Is as he "only" played around 14 balls on average. Well guess what, it looks like poor Karthik didn't get that memo as he has already delivered 2 MOTM performances in 17 innings even though he has faced less than 11 balls on average. I expect the excuses to get even more creative for Dhoni.

    I read that before that it was the bd player who did it . Then the srilankan copied. The BD players might take offence at credit going to sl guy and start the naagin dance again.

    I have to agree. Cricket can't bring peace between india and Pakistan. Pakistan has big issues to resolve before even thinking about friendship. If any person is thinking they can bring peace between india and Pakistan by cricket or any other mean, he is in dreamland. Aman ki asha, sadha nirasha.

    Sachin got a duck in his debut innings. Dhoni, Dhawan, Raina - All got ducks in their debut ODI innings. Dhoni off all people got runout in his debut. He went on to become one of the best runners in international cricket. Debut nerves has done funny things to Greats of the games. And here only in ICF you expect everyone to perform from ball one. Mustafizur has one of the best slower balls as and is a wonderful T20 bowler. It would surely be difficult for someone debuting to pick him immediately in the slog overs.

    Dhoni producing match winners even when he is not playing. What an inspiration. I don't remember last time anyone said they learnt how to win matches from Sachin b/c fact is Tendy was never a great match winner. India's best match winners ODI's - Kohli and Dhoni T20 - Kohli Tests - Ashwin / Kumble / Dravid

    Vijay Shankar last batted in an actual match on 9th February 2018. His next chance to bat was on 18 th March 2018. So, a guy bats for the first time in an international match in the final few overs of a tournament final ... that too without having match practice in batting for 36 days. Do people realize how difficult the situation was for him ! Would any one of us on ICF like to play their first international innings in such a circumstance ?

    B*Desh Fan lost his mind

    Ya he punched in the air left,right and centre and threw the remote.It's not a reaction of disappointment but a reaction of proving a point.Others were not that keen about it so they were laughing while he was pretty intensed. Plus if he was disappointed he would do something to the TV.He didn't even touch it.Probably he was one of our ICF member.

    Most memorable was Kanitkar's 4 because of the amazing game it was. Most impressive was Karthik's 6 (amazing cameo filled with proper shots). Most intelligent was Dhoni's 6. His calculations and strategic thinking in that game was OUT OF THE WORLD. I am going to go with Dhoni's 6 (because of how he planned it all out).

    Dhoni is an inspirational player as a captain no doubt. He had his golden era of 2007-2014. After T20 WC lost 2014 he proved his era is over and immediately should have handed over captaincy to Virat. If so I believe India would have lifted WC 2015 and T20 WC 2016. Good side is India is producing good captains. Delaying hand over the captaincy by Dhoni will shorten the leading time of Rohit in the future. As example if Virat led the team till 2023WC if so I believe it will shorten the chances of Rohit with age limit. My idea is captains of any country should lead maximum of 5 years and should give opportunity to youngsters who were under them. Dhoni and Ponting are exceptional no doubt. but Ranatunga, Azarudin & Fleming are average though they led more than 8 years.

    It's not over the top when it's bloody funny a Photoshop showing a bd nagin being controlled by a snakecharmer (famous Indian caricature) is funny take on the on field events where the snakecharmer dk controlled the bd game and won . A beheading or murder or shaving of one's head is profoundly crass ugly rude unfunny and at worst shows criminal intent. Over the top is what you guys do..anyways enough said.

    That is how he countered the Windies fire. Like a slimy serpent!! Seriously, if I could spend a few minutes with any cricketer, I would choose Sunny by a country mile. As young kid growing up in India, he gave me joy and inspiration. He may have a lot of flaws, but he was truly a great cricketer given India's standing in world cricket at that time. And for a old man, he seem to be very jovial and loves to let his guard off. He is the opposite of stand-off ish.

    Vijay & Thakur deserve more chance, Siraj needs to go back to domestics & work on his temperament , Unadkat needs to go back to domestics and stay there .

    31(28) runs for his first MOM.. When Sehwag has 34(29) in the same match.. MOM awards are a joke. Can't take those seriously unless you are a personal glory hunter like Sachin who is willing to do put the team in misery for his MOMs.. I glad we got ATGs like Kohli, Dravid and Dhoni who play for the team not for any MOMs.
