    But Satish also forgot to mention the heavy DOSES India handed Pakistan in the years following the English exit. Pakistan still hasn't recovered from all that. How about that for some history lesson guys ?

    good one , india gonna sturggle more

  • sid sharma on December 20, 2012, 6:03 GMT

    Love that detail where MSD's sideburns have grey hair. And the theme of the cartoon... awe-inspiring. And I thought I was the most creative person... huh!

  • ramli on December 20, 2012, 4:16 GMT

    Cannot escape laughing heartily ... what a plight for Dhoni ... the man who won the WC not so long ago ... good one

    @ fan_of_good_cricket: India has been dominating Pakistan in World Cups as they always have and seeing as bilateral series have been stopped due to political tension, it is the only tournament that the two teams have played against each other. I do think India is the better ODI side at the moment but Pakistan has better confidence which will make it an even contest. It would take a blinder from Yuvraj or Raina to push things in India's favour.

    Just one word for this cartoon: Epic

  • on December 19, 2012, 15:32 GMT

    Dhoni looks more like Kapugedara here ! :P

  • swan_is_ordinary on December 19, 2012, 15:23 GMT

    @ fan_of_good_cricket

    Your notion that India has been dominating Pakistan is wrong. In the last 10 years India has won 4 test matches to Pakistan's 3 and India has won 19 ODIs to Pakistan's 17. I dont call this domination, I call it nick and nick.

  • SarfBD on December 19, 2012, 12:17 GMT

    You are a genius man! How could you get this idea? You're simply awesome. Mesmerized....

  • on December 19, 2012, 12:12 GMT

    Good one. History may repeat itself :-)

  • DaisonGarvasis on December 19, 2012, 12:05 GMT

    Awesome cartoon Sathish. However, please stick to earlier faces of Dhoni, this one looks like you are trying to make him the Villian.

  • bighit14 on December 19, 2012, 12:03 GMT

    Ultimate one after a long time. Expressions are awesome

  • on December 19, 2012, 11:57 GMT

    Hope the cartoon dont become a reality like the one in cricinfo when fletcher taken over the coach for the team india where he says to Dhoni "lets start by losing"

  • fan_of_good_cricket on December 19, 2012, 11:31 GMT

    Very good sense of humour! Though I don't think history will repeat itself here. India are a far better ODI side than Pakistan and they have been dominating Pakistan for so long now. I think it was (probably) Kamran Abbasi who summed it up very well that Pakistan's dominance over India that started with that last ball six of Miandad was ended by Tendulkar's six of Shoaib Akhtar.

    Awsum One ...I cant stop laufing

  • on December 19, 2012, 8:32 GMT

    hahaha.!! Arguably one of the best cartoon i have come across.. :D

  • wakaPAK on December 19, 2012, 8:20 GMT

    Honestly, India would be fine in ODIs against any team in the world and although ODIs and T20s are more interesting to some fans but they doesn't show the class of a batsman or bowler; India need to get a good Test team.

  • on December 19, 2012, 8:02 GMT

    Satish,

    Excellent Sense of Humor. Simply Brilliant. Compliments of the season and A very happy New Year!!! Look forward to more funny ones in the coming year.

    Cheers Mate!!!

  • Rajeshj on December 19, 2012, 7:53 GMT

    you rock Satish... never could have imagined such a context for the cartoon... expressions of Dhoni and Srinivasan are just too brilliant... fantastic one...

  • naansari on December 19, 2012, 7:20 GMT

    Really excellent....currently how the Indian players are performing and their attitude on field, I hope that they shouldn't get a thrash against Pakistan too.

  • on December 19, 2012, 7:10 GMT

    They still are facing the same.

  • on December 19, 2012, 7:03 GMT

    This is the best cartoon I ever saw. Great job Satish.
