I don't agree with MSD's terrible policy of bowling part-timers in ODIs whenever you have the opposition struggling. I have watched every single ODI under his captaincy and I can remind people of numerous occasions whenever the opposition is in trouble, MSD suddenly decides to bowl part-timers instead of countinuing with his main bowlers to make sure you also get the lower-order batsmen out in time before they settle down by nudging the part-timers around for singles n doubles. Latest example: SA were 82-3 n then the very next over after Amla got, MSD applied his part-timer policy which took SA to 213 for 2, which took the game away from India. Rather then blaming the Indian batsmen, the FACT is that they lost the game even before the batsmen came out to bat with that 130 run partnership!! Please don't expect our batsmen to score over 250 against the supreme SA bowling attack. If India are to win more ODIs on SA pitches then MSD has to play 5 bowlers, cuz v got no seaming allrounder.
