Good one... dhoni seems to have used all the luck alloted to him in his first 2-3 years of captaincy.winning 1 in 13 tosses proves it...he is also not living up to his rep as cool capt'n, blaming fielders, bowlers and then BATSMEN (our only hope for this WC) at post match presentation isn't exactly how you are supposed to deal with defeats (he shld look at ashes and take inspiration from ponting) ... He already forgot that he is a batsman (how long has it been since he hit a decently paced innings barring practice match), giving strike to tail-enders when steyn is bowling, scoring 10 odd from 30 balls (yeah i am really pissed !!)....Used to be a pinch-hitter, instinctive leader and good wicket-keeper... became poor batsman, unlucky capt'n, better wicket-keeper...time for a new capt'n??
