Not a big fan of Dhoni, but really liked this video.... "What doesn't kill you, makes you stronger" - Hoping all our players (Kohli - realize Style and slogging in T20 is not cricket... have maturity to play longer innings in Test Matches and One Day matches make great players)... had some learning.. and will jump back to win the series... Go India Go !!!!

I don't know why everyone is blaming the win on the toss? The sun never came out, the pitch stayed the same, it was just a matter of utilising the new ball which the Pakistani's did better than the Indian's. Credit must be given where its due. Similarly as the ball got old it was easier to bat as Dohni did, also as did Nasir. There wasn't much bounce or too much turn.

OMG Dhoni, what other excuse is left for you now? The problem is that you team has batsmae who don't like a slight movement in the pitch. As soon it starts moving a 1 cm, they are in trouble. Good aggressive innings but defensive captaincy cost the team dearly again.
