What? Is this supposed to be funny? You are so much better than this. Dhoni did nothing and we all know it. Kind of kills the point really.

ha.ha.ha.ha.ha.ha.ha.ha very good one. DHONI is the luckiest captain i have seen. But even he isin't good enough to sort the west indies probliems. The' ''BCCI'' should simply ''BUY'' the ''WICB'' and use all the west indian grounds for the IPL and other tournaments giving enough chance to all the west indian players. The Windies won't mind it and india would get players like GAYLE, BRAVO, CHANDERS and pollard for FREE.
