MS Dhoni's demand for a pitch that turns from the first day, as a recipe for India's success, is based on "unreasonable foundations", believes Nirmal Shekar in the Hindu. The long-term success of a team doesn't hinge on their dependability on a particular type of pitch.
Dhoni surely believes that by picking ideas to fit his preconceptions and then repeating them tirelessly while cleverly manipulating the media and using them as he pleases, he can get what he wants. Then again, seemingly reasonable demands are quite often based on unreasonable foundations and Dhoni's prescription to cure the ills of the Indian side at home would certainly belong to this category.
