    Dhoni v Rahim - who has been better wk-batsman in tests?

    Not denying that Dhoni is an Indian ATG, even in tests. Sanga did score against hapless bowlers on flat wickets, but also did against good bowlers in alien conditions. That's the difference between ATG and just a good player. Dhoni averages 29 outside Asia whereas Sanga averages 47.

    Dhoni v Rahim - who has been better wk-batsman in tests?

    Sample size. You have a lot of batsmen, not like keepers. Sachin and Dravid tick certain criterias, like being a match winner, can save matches along with the tail, etc. Dhoni ticks none of those boxes (in tests). He's an above average keeper and an average batsman in tests. On what basis do you think he's ATG? Sangakarra was not given additional responsibilities as he excelled as a batsman and SL relied on his batting more, not because he was incapable of keeping. Dhoni also could have played only as a batsman, but the team could not afford to do that because he did jack outside India.

    Dhoni v Rahim - who has been better wk-batsman in tests?

    Dhoni is not ATG in tests. ATG's meaning is he's significantly better/ standing out from peers. Gilchrist is one, Sanga is one, Andy Flower is one. Dhoni is not. He may be an Indian ATG that too purely with stats after battering hapless bowlers on flat wickets.

    Andy flower, Sangakarra, Matt Prior, heck even Mushi have comparable or better average than Dhoni, but still only Dhoni is ATG

    Get Washington Sundar into Indian LOI team already

    Man of the series in his first T20I tournament...Didn't get to bat at all, coz captain knows jack about his batting skills. Has an average IPL, doesn't get to bat there also. Dropped from team after that. Who is to blame here?

    Sid kaul selected for third t20 against WI

    Sathiya sodhanai
  9. Why not Kohli take rest? What if he gets injured? This guy acts as if he is BCCI.
  10. Lol so true. Fans are doing disservice by attributing bowlers/batsmen's success to captains like Dhoni and Kohli. Yes they might have influenced them by at most 10% but it's the players themselves who put in the hard yards like Bumrah.
  11. You're right. Was about to start this thread. Players are themselves and keen to contribute without them. It's got to do with the attitude that Kohli and Dhoni bring in more than anything. Players were fearful and gloomy with these 2 around..
  12. ROFL..We should just lock him for a week in a room with just food and an iPad.. outcome should be interesting

    Has noone to blame but himself, along with the online hype train.

    Just recording..

    DK has won at least 3 matches out of 22 for India on his own (may be more). Strike rate of 145. Better keeper than you know who. May be this is the format for him.
