Dhoni wants an Eden turner from Day 1! ~ Methinks he wants England to win again ! ~ At Wankhede in Mumbai our legendary Batsmen came up Ducks against Swann and Monty made them do the Full Monty ! ~ while Peterson and Cook made our Spinners look pretty ordinary ! ~ and England levelled the Test Series 1:1 ~ a literal ‘Spin’ to the Story that India had prescripted !
Doctored Pitches and Insider Trading are two sides of the same coin !
I quite agree with Prabhir Mukherjee,the octagenerian Eden Garden Curator,when he terms Dhoni’s demand as “Immoral” ~last year when India beat England in an ODI at Kolkata he had countered Dhoni’s accusation that it was an ugly pitch by scoffing him “Pitches don’t score runs,Batsmen do !”
When Dhoni burst on to the Indian scene in swashbuckling style he had captured our Nation’s Imagination & Heart ~ I loved when he came on to bat and showed guts and a fiery spirit and demolished the opposition with unconventional strokeplay ~ he was swarmed with Endorsements and quickly became very rich and also an Influential Individual who called the shots at Selecting the Indian Team
All this ,in my view,doused his killer instincts and it showed in his strategies and ridiculous decision making on the field of play and prompted me to blog several times on this as I was really cut off with Dhoni ~ Check out my earlier posts on Dhoni that question his tactics
Dhoni seems increasingly disinterested….India all out for 296 after being 267 for 1 !…and then Nehra ensures we lose to South Africa who successfully chase 13 in the first four balls of the last over
