Dhoni has become more responsible since he has got the captaincy. He trimmed his hair, and also refrained himself from playing big shots. He plays according to situation now and I dont think its to increase his average as some people think. Some people are just so against him and blame him for anything bad that happens. Dhoni has having a slight slump in form these days, but thats just normal like any other cricketer. He has been consistent since the start of his career so let him enjoy his run of bad form. I am sure he will come back strongly when it matters most.

i am saying upfront.i dont like this dhoni. his batting these days making u think of seeing sehwag play like dravid in test matches. u have to agree he is not an orthodox batsmen.his aggresiveness stopped everyone from noticing his clumsiness but when i see it very clearly while he is defending,i started to hate the people who made him the captain.

Dhoni has stopped himself from playing all those big shots that he played so very well at the starting of his career. It is a lot to do with the responsibilities that he has now on his shoulders being the captain of the team.

s. Dhoni is not playing well todays. He is just seeing his strike rate to be 100 and average at his demand. I think Captaincy made effect on him just like on Sachin, Ganguly, Dravid ....
