    beetle reacted to helperononline in MS Dhoni did same with Sachin, Sehwag and I': Gautam Gambhir wants India to groom someone else as wicketkeeper   
    Gautam Gambhir wants to look at the future just like MS Dhoni when he was captain.
    Gautam Gambhir has said that it was time to groom players for the future and India should look at someone else at wicketkeeper in place of MS Dhoni. There have been talks about MS Dhoni’s position in the Indian team after their exit from the World Cup in England. Gambhir said that it was vital to prepare a new wicketkeeper for the next World Cup.
    He said that even Dhoni applied the same tactics when the latter said that Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag and himself can’t play together in Australia.
    "Be it Rishabh Pant, Sanju Samson, Ishan Kishan or any other wicketkeeper, whoever is believed to have the potential should be made the wicketkeeper," he said.
    Meanwhile, Gambhir's former opening partner Virender Sehwag had said that chief selector MSK Prasad should reach out to Dhoni to reflect on his future if the selectors do not see him as the first-choice keeper-batsman anymore. 
     
    Gautam Gambhir said that when Dhoni was the skipper he invested in the future and it's time to do the same. He said that even Dhoni was thinking of future when he said that Gambhir, Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag can’t play together in Australia.
    “It’s important to look into the future. And when Dhoni was the skipper, he invested in the future. I remember Dhoni saying in Australia that me, Sachin and Sehwag can’t play the CB series together as the grounds were big. He wished for young players for the World Cup. It’s necessary to take practical decisions than being emotional,” Gambhir was quoted as saying in TV9 Bharatvarsh.
    “And it’s time to groom the youngsters. Be it Rishabh Pant, Sanju Samson, Ishan Kishan or any other wicketkeeper, whoever is believed to have the potential should be made the wicket-keeper. Give him chances for one and half-years and if he doesn’t perform, then others should be tried out as well. Then one would get to know who the keeper for the next World Cup is,” the cricketer-turned-politician added.
    Gautam Gambhir also said that while MS Dhoni was one of the best captains for India, there have been other Indian captains who have done really well. He also added that it is not right to give all credits for success to the captain and blame him when otherwise.
    "If you see the statistics, then he (Dhoni) is the best captain. But that doesn’t mean that other captains have done badly. Sourav Ganguly has done good captaincy; we have won outside under him. Under Virat Kohli’s captaincy, we have won ODI series in South Africa and Test series in Australia."
    "It is true that MS Dhoni has won us two World Cups (2007 and 2011) but it is not fair to give all credit to the captain for success and criticise only him when it doesn’t go your way. Dhoni has won the Champions Trophy and World Cups but other captains have also taken India forward. Captains like Anil Kumble have done the job though not for long; Rahul Dravid also led India to win in England," added the 37-year-old cricketer-turned-politician
    Former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag has said that chief selector MSK Prasad should reach out to <S Dhoni and talk about his future. 
    “It should be left to MS Dhoni to decide when to hang his boots. The duty of the selectors is to reach out to Dhoni and inform him that he is no more being seen as India’s wicket-keeper batsman going forward. I wish the selectors had asked me as well about my plans so I would also have been able to inform them,” Sehwag said in a panel discussion according to timesnownews.com.

    beetle got a reaction from Kronadler in Rohit Sharma to lead the ODIs and Virat Kohli continues to lead test matches: Sources   
    Kohli is a fattu.
    He can only abuse.
    He also has very little power backing him except his brand value. He derives his power via dhoni 's backing who has power.
    He will abuse the mothers and sisters but that is all.
    He will throw tantrums for sometime.

    Banks don’t sell Data. At least they are restricted by laws. Data is not main source of income for banks. It is for Facebook.

    The whole point is Facebook will starting mining data they will track your purchases and plans on selling data to big companies like Amazon or Walmart. Amazon and Walmart kill small and medium sized companies after gaining access to customer interests and like and what they paid. They will design marketing and sales strategy around that. People would be stupid to give this data to Facebook. Does India even has anti trust laws to stop these kind of things from happening ? Eu does that but still small and medium sized companies vanish but the governments collect fines from big corporates what is the point of collecting fines when businesses go bankrupt ?

    Emotional drama to get his parents into this debate.
     
    Did Dhoni himself consider what parents of Dada, Dravid, Sehwag, VVS, Kumble would have thought when he decided he had to drop them?

    This guy has crossed all the limits..Even with Sachin, many were raising their voice against him and he retired from ODIs the day before our squad for Aane do series was announced assuming he was asked to do so. This nonsense of "smooth transition, his future plans, Grooming youngsters" never happened with SRT..

    Neither does Kohli lose his captaincy despite insipid and gutless moves
     
    Nor does Dhoni lose his place
     
    Nor does MSK lose his position....
     
     
    Everyone got away scot-free.
     
    No accountability.
     
    Move on. 
     
    Amen!

    T20 or TT does not mean Twenty-Twenty any more. It has been renamed in honor of the Mighty Thala as Tuk-Tuk.  I promise you he will live up that reputation at the world cup down under next year

    Following on the footsteps of God of cricket in terms being a burden on the team by not retiring.
     
    Yuvi did the same.
     
    They should be following Dravid... how to gracefully retire.

    beetle reacted to BERGKAMP in Dhoni and Kohli more concerned for their brands than future of Indian cricket   
    imo
     
    They know there is a raft of big talent coming through that could strengthen the team, but they have plotted together to keep them out as long as possible so their own brands remain the biggest and most valuable
     
    Their first priority now is to squeeze out every penny possible from ads/marketing in the time they have left in the game and second it is what is good for the team
     
    Ass licker Shastri has been the perfect foil for them as he also doesn't really give a * about the team, just power and status
