    Is Dhoni more popular than Sachin ?

    Reminds me of the padosi forum where grown ass men argued over who was more popular, more better looking, had better hair, and more girlfriends.

    Why do Dhoni fans hate Pant?

    Dhoni worshippers need to man the f up. This forum was brutal on Tendulkar (justifiable criticism in his last few months) which led to several softies wailing and quitting. This new set of softies seems to be headed in that direction. They need to realise that on the internet no one is above criticism/abuse, be it Mahatma Gandhi, Mother Theresa or Roger Federer. If you want to worship Dhoni, unplug that cord and continue to live in your echo chamber.

    Dhoni version 2.01 beta !!!

    He's batting really well but unfortunately, given the next T20 world cup is 2.5 years away, this may not have any immediate positive consequences for the Indian team.

    MS Dhoni: The Pythagoras of finishing !!!

    The next WT20s are in 2020 and 2021. Whoever is the WK-bat in 2020 should ideally also be the one for 2021. Is Dhoni the man for both tournaments, first of which is 2 and a half years away?
  5. If those 5 spinners had Dhoni keeping for them, they would all have taken 800 wickets by now.
  6. Dravid: I am getting too much credit, please focus on the players. Shastri: Where are the experts now?
  7. He is a phenom. Best Indian bat in ODIs ever.
  8. While others have cited a few, three have taken place in South Africa alone. 111 - http://www.espncricinfo.com/series/16468/scorecard/63587/south-africa-vs-india-2nd-test-india-tour-of-south-africa-1992-93/ 169 - http://www.espncricinfo.com/series/16126/scorecard/63737/south-africa-vs-india-2nd-test-india-tour-of-south-africa-1996-97/ 155 - http://www.espncricinfo.com/series/15465/scorecard/63951/south-africa-vs-india-1st-test-india-tour-of-south-africa-2001-02/

    We could have won this 3-0

    Just the little things on and off the field that’s led to a 1-2 loss. Virat could have actually achieved an overseas whitewash had selections been sensible.

    Wimbledon 2017

    The first Greatest of all time who is dominated by not one but two of his peers.

    Checks in The Wall

    We have tours to Sri Lanka and South Africa lined up. Our overseas batting coach averaged 33 and 29 in those countries.

    Ravi Shastri new India head coach

    Wait for Kohli to come back to India. Some more big announcements on the way.

    Who do you think would be Indian Coach?

    In all likelihood, Ravi Shastri.
  14. Apparently it will be Ravi Shastri, not Sehwag or Moody. Enjoy lads.
  15. Dhoni has been a liability in T20s for ages now. He has lost us games by his inability to score fast and not being able to close games at the end. In the last 10 years in terms of SR, he stands at a grand rank of #45 amongst batsmen who have scored more than 500 T20I runs. What's he doing in the team again? http://stats.espncricinfo.com/ci/engine/stats/index.html?class=3;filter=advanced;orderby=batting_strike_rate;qualmax1=10000;qualmin1=500;qualval1=runs;spanmax1=11+Jul+2017;spanmin1=11+Jul+2007;spanval1=span;template=results;type=batting

    Super smart BCCI !!!

    Despite being insipid in tests and ODIs, WI in T20s is a team full of Agent Smiths. They just keep coming at you and each one has amazing six hitting ability which can turn around any game. Not to forget the the monster Andre Russell who will be back soon.
  17. People commenting on that article are really laying into Dhoni. When Yuvraj isn't in the XI, spotlight is all on Dhoni.
  18. Dhoni fans should ask themselves this: Is this the Dhoni they became a fan of? Are they satisfied with how he's batting now? Do they feel Dhoni's batting now (no boundaries in 100 balls) is better than what a Pant can do? If Rahane or Rohit Sharma had played this knock, would they have defended him with as much gusto? Why has this great finisher failed in numerous T20s and ODIs, especially in the recent past? Once they introspect, they will find their self and their blind fandom melting away.

    Dhoniconda suffocating India now

    Not even Dravid played an innings like this. Rishabh Pant can't bat like this for sure. The only guy who wasnt criticised for his innings in the CT final was Dhoni. I guess that's what people expect from him now.
  20. Dhoni was remarkable: batting at all XI positions, bowling 20/50 overs and fielding in all areas to win these all by himself. My favourite moment was when Dhoni was bowling badly against England in the CT final, Dhoni decided to give Dhoni another go and it came off, with good catches by Dhoni at point and Dhoni at mid on. Reminded me of the 2007 final when Dhoni gave the ball to a rookie slow medium bowler Dhoni, who Misbah scooped only to get caught by Dhoni at short fine-leg. Fantastic performance! Close second was the high quality partnership between Dhoni and Dhoni in the 2011 WC final. Pity Dhoni got out on 97, but Dhoni and Dhoni finished it off as they had done many times over the last 10 years. Finally, Dhoni and Dhoni carrying Dhoni on their shoulders brought a tear to many fans' eyes.
  21. Pathetic comments from Indian fans. Nothing wrong with what Kohli, Dhoni and Yuvi did. Indian and Pakistani players generally have been very good friends off the field and that continues. However, Kohli giggling like a 12 yr old post the match was pathetic.

    Anil Kumble steps down as coach

    The tide and support is very quickly turning against Kohli. Kumble is not a Chappell that he cannot be gotten along with. This is on Kohli and Kohli alone. Now he has his team and his coach, whoever that may be. If he backs this up by winning in SL, doing well in RSA and winning the next ICC tournament, only then will I accept that Kohli was right.
