    rtmohanlal got a reaction from UrmiSinhaRay in Is Dhoni done?   
    still feels Dhoni should be tried at 4rth position with in first 15 or 20 overs for a few matches . If  he fails  then  also, he should retire.
    Frankly his 2  last inns were disappointing especially that of 3rd one dayer. He should have blazed away  in the end, but got out at the wrong time.Still feel he is the man to do consolidation and then play aggressively  in the end  if the first 2 wkts fall with in 15-25 overs.

    proven failures like Yadav,Bhuvi(in one dayers only) get selected to share new ball. 35+ avg:ing bowlers are not fit to be in the team .After testing them for a few games they  should be immediately kicked out and new faces should be tested,Unfortunately that's not at all happening.

    keep Dhawan,Rohit,Kohli,Dhoni as top 4.  Bumrah,Kuldeep,Chahal should form  the nucleus of bowling.Kick out  proven mediocrities like
    Raina & Kartik for ever.Rahul & other promising youngsters should be given tried and tested for 5th and 6th slots.Kedar, Pandya,Jadeja should be played in rotation policy based on conditions.Ashwin too would have to be in contention as a bowler  depending on  playing conditions.Fresh talent should be continuously tried and tested for other bowling slots  till quality pacers are discovered.

    keep in mind even in these days there are several bowlers who goes only around 5 an over.And as if there are no potential bowlers in domestics  this below average has been playing for almost 7 years now.What prevented the selectors in testing other promising youngsters in dead rubbers, against lower ranked teams etc etc? Who knows as to whether another Bumrah like  bowler wouldn't have come out or not in the process??

    First of all accept the truth that not every match can be won, especially chasing a mammoth 322. Having said that if a fight was to be made out of the situation, either one of the openers needed to play a big inns(by law of averages  it was to be Dhawan ) but didn't happen.Rahul failed miserably.Then if any chance, it was Raina to keep  moving on and then Pandya needed to explode.All this
    didn't happen, then why blame Dhoni alone.???? BTW, i do not  have any speciality towards Dhoni... just telling what i feel to be sensible.That's all.

    even in the last 2 years , a few of them . For instance his partnership with Bhuvi in SL , his inns in WI, his 85 or so vs AUS etc etc. That's
    why his avg: still remains 50+ even in last 2 years. Add his still brilliant wicket keeping &  astute captaincy tactics he is still worth his place in the team. The way he played in London was strange...agreed , but for others incompetency we can't blame him

    the calls to replace a proven certified great  with a rookie youngster with the world cup only with in 1 year reach is delusional to say the least.The need of the hour is  not to discard such a vastly experienced and great  player, but to find a way to use the slightly diminished (in one of his 3 disciplines only)prowess of this   3 dimensional (captaincy,wkt keeping & batting) player in the most effective way for the team.

    First he needs to be tried in the match situation I was talking about.Other than that how can we tell??? If he proves to be  a failure in that situation too , then we all can agree that he is past his sell date. As I said, in the match situation like that in yesterday  in the 27th over, Dhoni shouldn't come to the crease.Only 2 wickets fell by 27th over implies the top 4 has taken the team score much further.Isn't it??? In such case a much agile newbie like Rahul who can stright away start rotating the strike and hitting  should come to the crease. Similarly  same avg: with slightly lesser str: rate in the last 2 years is not delusion. it is plain reality  & hence reflection of his performance.
     
    In short the essence of what I said is to utilize the superb keeping expertise & captaincy tactics of Dhoni as far as it could be by 'channeling his slightly decreased batting ability in the most effective way as it could be'.

    Ofcourse..... I am one of those and I am saying with confidence & firmness of mind  that Dhoni should be in the team.Having said that I too felt strange in the way Dhoni played that particular inns.Why he did, only himself and team management knows.But the thing is that
    if we check his  last 2 years performance  his avg: remains more or less the same but  only his str: rate has decreased by a little.Hence taking his value as a pure wkt keeper and captaincy experience into consideration, he can still be in the team.But he needs to be properly utilized by team management. I think he can play as a 4rth position batsman if  2 wkts fall early  with in  first 15 overs or so.Means it is a situation  in which firstly consolidation is needed and then after that  playing aggressively. Dhoni with his vast experience is the most suited person to do this  role.
     
    BTW some people here are supporting Rahul for 3rd(if Kohli  plays 4rth) or 4rth position.Rahul or any other newbie,they are supposed to be unlike Dhoni.Isn't it???Means they can straight away start hitting out unlike Dhoni.That means they are qualified to bat at any position
    after 4rth because of their ability to hit out from the first ball itself straight away.So why can't Dhoni be 4rth and Rahul or any other qualified newbie be at 5th??????

    Not talking  about batting positions. Dhoni can easily play at no:4 .Keep in mind that he is a multidimensional player who is a brilliant kepper and can aid Kohli in captaincy too.His only problem off late has been not able to hit out straight away.But with his past ability in mind and also his record in the last 2 years(able to maintain the avg: but a bit lower str: rate) , it can be easily said that he can play the anchor+hitter role to perfection at 4rth position. 
     
    For instance suppose the 2nd team wkt falls with in first 15 overs.Then he can come and consolidate.  Suppose the 2nd wkt falls only after 35th over.Then another hitter can come at the crease in place of Dhoni.Keep in mind this is a format where a lot more flexibility
    in batting positions can be afforded when compared to test cricket.Sachin,Gilchrist.Sehwag,M.Waugh,Ganguly etc are all examples of this.
    So I do think Dhoni still deserves a place in the eleven.His vast experience in several ways  would be a worth if channeled properly especially keeping in mind that world cup is only with in one year reach.

    the main culprits in yesterday's loss  was  mainly seam bowlers, then Dhawan,Rahul,Raina & then Pandya in that order.And here some experts are blaiming Dhoni.

    whether Dhawan tried or not, he is to blame because he got 'OUT' too early .That's the thing.Simple.Neither am i supporting Dhoni's approach.

    would agree with that. For some reasons may be as part of some team agenda(which he only knows), Dhoni played that way. But to blame Dhoni alone can never be justified.
