one match too late dhoni...

shared by straight point on Monday, September 28, 2009

"It sure gets tough with the batsmen if you play an extra bowler," Dhoni said, "but then it's one and the same thing if bowlers go for major runs. It again brings the pressure on batsmen. So in this case the batsmen will have to take the responsibility,"

exactly dhoni... it took you nothing less than a defeat to get it right... and they say you always think ahead of game... by the time we play west indies you will learn that playing seven batsmen isn't that bad and you still have options with four bowlers...

play nayyar as specialist batsman instead of pathan with the hope that you can squeeze some decent overs from him... bowl raina more... let rp drive your hummer in chinchpokli along with bhajji... and let mishra and praveen show what you were missing all this while...

It's not too late if India plays well today they will reach the Semis quite comfortably,the inclusion of Mishra and P Kumar will make a difference.

wasim... i was not commenting on india's chances but dhoni's 'forward' thinking...

mishra and praveen are already making difference and mishra would have got wicket in his first over after nearly seven years but for the 'reflexes' of dravid...

Dhoni sure looks a little more lost these days. Is he not getting enough milk in SA?

straight point said...

sujith... dhoni is having enough milk... its just that our seamers have started 'milking' him more... :)

The milk these days are of a different kind, I say.
