As a lover of Ind Cricket am registering my remarks dont take personal MSD..

FlashBack1 : Slow fielder? Rewind the match played against OZ,MSD missed out crucial two stumping chance..coz he thinks too much abt senior players not the basics that ball should be collected behind the stumps..that costs india atleast 50 runs later. (MS itz time to wake up & improve ur keeping skills)

FlashBack2: Match tied with SL,was it so tough to get 59 frm 60 with 5 to 6 wickets remaining & dhoni in the Crease .. What he wanted to prove taking the match till 50 th over(could have been easily won if it is targeted for 49th over..)

Flashback3:(2010 - 2011WC) dint rem any match won by him other than WC Final.otherwise that could have been his last ODI.

Facts : Its better bothering abt 2012 than 2015. Dnt hate the seniors MSD,you too lined up there.

Finally tips to win more matches.(Dont tell Anyone ;-) lol ) Better you Play well MS & get quick fire runs atleast 1 in 5 not once in a yr

IMO dhonis only mistake in this mater is that he directly gave a press statement regarding this; he shud hav talked to paaji-viru bhai n gauti clearly about it. But otherwise ; we cant deny the fact in his statement.nt sure about gauti since hes of dhonis age only but this cud be true in case of rest 2. sachin paaji becoz of age ; reflexes tend to get slower with age -even in test series we saw dravid n laxman droping catches sometime. and viru bhai due to recurring injuries .So IMO if captain feels this way theres nothing wrong and he has a right to speak out ; coz hes performing well as a batsman-keeper-captain and secondly wenever its his fault he never hesitates to accept it; dint he take blame for Gauti's runout in tied game last week? I know sachin -viru fans cant digest this fact much ; even I am die hard sachin fan but truth is truth

Sehwag is indeed very fast. He finishes his innings faster than anyone else!

I think Dhoni's comments really made sense.. place in Indian cricket team is looking more like government jobs where non-performance doesn't really result in being sacked.. I think the time has come.. the selection committee should show more character and take a leaf from John Inverarity of cricket Australia.. inconsistent and non-performers like Sehwag, Raina, Jadeja etc. should be shown the door.. Tendulkar should be graciously requested to retire from at least ODIs.. I think he must be expecting some flat tracks in the ODIs where he can clinch his 100th 100... please tell him that he won't get it in Australia.. he should show more character like Muralidharan who had the guts to openly announce his retirement date in spite of not having achieved the 800 landmark.. learn on sachin...
