Why Dhoni is angry now ? When VVS tried to contact him before announcing his retirement, Dhoni was not reachable as he generally is (Oh a VVIP for even Laxman, ehh ?) So how did Dhoni know, VVS didn't send him invitation ? It could be that, VVS might have tried to invite him but again the same "VVIP " Dhoni was not reachable ! or even VVS would have thought of NOT even trying to invite him as Dhoni would not be reachable again ! Whatever, I'm happy that Dhoni got humiliated.

Not sure if VVS did the right thing.. But he clearly said that MS was not available when VVS was looking for him before he announced his retirement.. so that says a lot about Dhoni and why he wasn't invited but should have.. both the players have done a lot for Indian cricket but that 281 against mighty Aussies and lots of match saving/winning knocks allow VVS to stay ahead...far ahead of MS

You made my day Satish..TIT for TAT... to RajeshJ. Yes Dhoni has the right to to say anything...but not infront of the Cameras....Luxman thanks for this..

Good one Satish... But I don't think its right to blame Dhoni on this.. In spite of his repeated failures on critical tours like England and Australia, I don't think Dhoni criticized or gave up on the seniors... he was critical about Sehwag's fielding and as a captain he has every right to do so.. inviting guys like Gambhir and ignoring Dhoni only shows the petty-mindedness of VVS and nothing else... the seniors should have called it a time almost a year back... I don't think there was any reason for them to continue so long... it is indeed true that the seniors have blocked some young guys cricketing time needlessly... full stop...
