    express bowling got a reaction from Laaloo in Saha likely to miss England Test series   
    What happened to the policy  " Performance in A teams necessary for senior team selection "   ?
     
    Pant has performed for our A team in the only 4 day match he has played recently  (  7 catches and 68 not out off 71 balls to win it for his team )
     
    Parthiv , who is a bad keeper, should in no way be chosen over Pant.

    .....and Windies team humiliated everyone in 1975.

    Dude, I am asking about present teams. Which team can be considered strong at present? Despite of all it's flaws, internal politics, India is still a top team. It's just that it could have been even better if it got rid of the passengers.

    Why are you asking me about Dhoni? I, myself, am telling get rid of him.

    He is right.
     
    Everyone should stop looking at these players, then Shastri will be happy getting 2000 rupees a month for coaching the team.
     
    Arrogant guy should remember that he is earning crores only because people are looking at players and not themselves and he tells them do opposite.
     
    Height of ignorance and arrogance.

    Right 16 not in tour Right 11 not in the field. This is the problem, wins losses are part of the game, people are chilled about it, its selection blunders that people are pissed off about.

    He blocks till the players at the other end have no option but to hit out and get out, then he stays not out and scores a few boundaries when the game is already lost to bring up his strike rate, his fans hail him as the lone warrior. This has been Dhoni's template since 2016.

    Dhoni suffers from the same problem that many  sportsmen have in the past. Believing in your own hype.
     
    This is when they lose all common sense.
     
    Some famous examples Mike Tyson towards the end of his career started believing in the one punch knockouts which he became famous for and started looking for that rather than taking it one match at a time.
     
    Same thing with Goran Ivanisevic who had a good all round game but just thought that he can win the game just with his serve.
     
    Sehwag towards the end wanted to smack every ball rather than being calculating and treating bowling on it's merit or playing according to situation.
     
    Similarly,Dhoni started believing this last ball/last over finisher hype. I don't think there is any malice there but he just thinks that the answer to ever situation is that take the game to the last 2 overs and start slogging. It doesn't work every time obviously and it is costing us a lot of games.
     
    I fear Kohli now is going in the same way of believing the hype(rightfully to some extent) as the greatest ODI chaser ever. I see him chose to bowl whenever he is in doubt like the CT final for example because he thinks he can chase any target.Hope that is not the case though.

    Lol.. This is ridiculous.. Seriously.. How can anyone defend Dhoni's innings in the last match!! We are not gonna win any trophy if we persist with this mindset. Dhoni is so shameless that he wont even call it quit unless being mandated by BCCI.

    It doesn't matter how thick-skinned you are but all this criticism has to hurt and make you question your decision to hang around.
     
    Dhoni is aware of his physical and technical limitations as a batsman, sees what some of the younger wkt keepers have done at other levels, and knows Kohli's stubborness is keeping him away from hanging up his gloves and collecting his pension cheques. He wasn't willing to provide the same defense to other senior players who went through similar passage under his own captaincy.
     
    He may still occasionally play blinders as batsman but he isn't half the batsman he used to be 10 years ago and for a country brimming with so much talent, this selfish behavior really riles me up.
     
    What still draws him to international cricket? He will be treated as cricket god by casual Indian fans for next 50 years regardless of what happens from now until he retires. IPL will provide him with his cricket fix and his next 7 generations don't have to earn a dime. He can pretty much have any position in BCCI or CSK's management.
     
    I had so much mad love and respect for him but can't stand the sight of him in India's blue uniform anymore.

    Right after the match, your defence was that match was already lost when Dhoni arrived at the crease. Now ur saying partnerships were needed.

    Sab ke sab bike hue hai. Imagine the response if someone had tried this **** even as recent as late 2000s !!! In our worst era when Mongia-Prabhakar played weird match losing knocks against WI, they were banned from the tournament and an investigation committee headed by retired CJI Chandrachud was set up. That happened during Azhar's reign FGS.
     
    I remember Dada being out of touch in that 2005 ODI series against Pakistan, he was completely out of sorts. He didn't deliberately screw up like Dhoni here, but his intent wasn't delivering results. The onslaught he faced from news channels, my God these current players have seen nothing. There was a daily programme, once in the morning and then evening where news anchors from various outlets would be in a race to make fun of Dada......even if there were no match that day. That match ka mujrim show which featured Bedi, Abbas and Kirmani was savage. Bedi tore apart Dada every single day and audience laughed, cheered and clapped, Kirmani was more gentle (but firm) while Zaheer Abbas would try to defend the struggling southpaw without much success. Look at channels today, even genuine criticism is censored it seems...max to max they may sugercoat and try to find a positive/justification/spin for continuous letdowns. Who says we are no more milestone driven? It seems to me that at least experts, news channels and social media are more milestone driven now than 20 years back. Tab bahut gaaliyan barasti thi, aaj kal 200 runs se haare toh yahi dhoondh nikalenge ki bhai kisne apna 4000 runs/150 wickets/75 catches/100k likes/250k followers/10k retweets/30 girlfriends mark cross kiya aur poore show mein usi kaa jashn manayenge.....saale bhadve !!!! Shameless sellouts and Indian public ko jitna gaali de utna kam. Next time Dhoni sets foot in Chinnaswamy sab daud chalenge stadium mein Dhoni, Dhoni, Finisher Cool karne, and those cringe inducing placards and slogans 
     
    I am not advocating hyper reactions and insults thrown at players, all I want is for questions to be asked and players/coaches being held to account. Sky Sports team does that succinctly, without going overboard. Dare I say even Pakistani and Bangladeshi experts/commentators have shown more spine to question the under-performing superstars of their teams, we are worst in that regard.

    Bloody *ers ! If he played bad...atleast let him get the brickbats. Nah....this guy should not be questioned no matter what he does. He will keep ' finishing ' games like this with that smug look on his face.
     
    He will make one decent score worth something in one of many matches and the whole procession of ' in your face ' comments and memes will start.

    There was a moment in the match when Dhoni refused the single off the first ball batting with Kuldeep. The commentators were saying, he is going to crazy now and start hitting probably why he refused the single and what does Dhoni do,he takes the single off the 2nd ball. Even the commentators were confused as why did he refuse the single off the 1st ball when he took a single anyways the next ball.
     
    Have seen Dhoni screw up many chases but this innings was bizarre.

    Why couldn't Raina who already scored 46 runs,bat through the innings. Usually doesn't the set batsman carry on all the way through.
    Shouldn't Dhoni be the one taking the risks.

    He should. That's a no brainer. But these morons will not drop Dhoni. Raina will also play because he can roll his arm over for a couple of overs and is a left handed batsman. It doesn't matter that he's not a good batsman these days.
