Just few months before Indian Cricket team was blamed to be a looser cricket team and every one was blaming to M.S. Dhoni, Indian Cricket Team Captain that he can not plan cricket. He is unfit for captain-ship and there was a shout to remove him and hat not. But in last month he has proved that he is perfect captain. From this what you learn? According to me in Indian Cricket Team every player is the best player. Every one has talent. But, in India every field including sports are infected by disease of dirty politics. If every cricket player keep him away from it, I swear Indian Cricket Team is the No.1 team in the world.

We love cricket so much in India that we wish Indian team wins every match. We start blaming everyone when we start loosing. We do not understand that winning is a team effort. Every body in a team should contribute to his 100% capacity. Many a times winning is also helped by the opponent team making too many mistakes. However, the 24/7 news channels require some breaking stuff every now and then and they make a huge mountains out of nothing. They start blaming the team and specially bring forth the incapacity of the leader. In my opinion what is more important is even if you loose, one should examine the manner in which you loose.

Since the expectations are too high, cricket team in India is criticized a lot even for a single loss. This is something which needs to be changed. Every win and loss needs to be seen in right perspective.

Hi ashok, I never had problems with Mahender Singh Dhooni or his being captain but my problem was the players not playing to their potential because they knew they can not be dropped so they didn't care. Take note till before last match, Gambhir was getting out bold time and again in first 5 overs and so was shewag and Rahane. This shows complete lack of application. Even Virat was getting out on irresponsible shots which wasnt good.

This is exactly I am saying that he did not perform he was dropped and see how good he came back. Everyone should be made to understand that they can be dropped if they do not perform.

Ashokraghute, I have always said that Indian team is in transition since its great players like Anil Kumble, Sachin, Rahul, laxman retired in last couple of years and Shewag, gambir and Khan are not in their form. So it takes time for the team to build up again. Now we are seeing sign of team coming back together and performing well.

I agree with both of you and Agrim because you are right that since our best players retired in quick sucession, team need time to regroup and grow again. It is not new. It has happened with all teams in world. Look at Australia. With retiremnt of their great players in last couple of years, the team is not world beater any more. Also as Agrim said in response below, they should do something about those who play irresponsibly. They should also be made to think that they can be dropped.

Yes but when we won world cup, the players like Shewag, ghambir, virat were playing responsibly and Tendulkar and Zaheer khan were still in team.

In ODI, no body has point finger on MS Dhoni as a leader and as a batsman. So, it's in the test matches that the question has been raised and believe me those questions are still intact and nothing has changed. Scrutiny of players are done in every country. Now the whole English media is taking swipe at all the non-performing players and their fans are also angry and lambasting English players. So, such kind of brouhaha takes place in each country. But, India should try to maintain their numero uno status atleast a year.

Yes you are right Anilhclites .No one can really point out Dhoni as a batsmen / Captain in 50 over format but he is not at all performing either in captaincy and as a batsmen in test format . In every sport it is common when a team looses every one especially media will do lot of hungama , that is very high in India . Let us hope that India will continue their number one status at least for this year.

some people who doesn't know about cricket say that dhoni is unfit but every cricket lover who knows the game know that dhoni is capable of leading the team.in my opinion cricketers are not gods to win each and every match they r also human like us so they do make mistakes and they will learn from the mistakes.when u r team looses a match the media hype is soo much that these media channels analyse all the cricketers and create a negative impact on the players at the time of loosing.we have to remember that none of these media persons never played a game they just analyse its easy to comment they just do these things for their TRP ratings. so people who watch these things also feel negative about the players.so u just have to think with u r own mind what is correct and wrong.i do believe politics in cricket but media negative impact is also the main reason the approach on the game by the people

Dude you are right about the politics but decisions of Dhoni earlier dindt work which caught the eye of those critics but he has proved that their is only one and only one M.S Dhoni...Chennai SuperKings whistle Podu....

Dhoni really made use of the chances in front of him. He put his best efforts and this made team india to win the series in pretty good way. If really proves that none can replace him and it is very true. He himself is the best example of it.

Yes, it is the politics that dominates sports- be it Cricket, Hockey, football, archery or whatever games or sports you name in India. If people rise above their petty considerations, and do not use sports associations as a source of their enrichment and power, things would be much better in India sports. Alas, we are unlikely to see such a thing happening because of so many constraints.

A team captain doesn't shoot up full grown in a day and die tomorrow like a mushroom. He was made such because he passed qualifications inherent in the sports of his interest. He's there to lead and understand all the strengths and weaknesses of his team members. He's there as a captain to make the team achieved its objectives; to win possibly and cleanly in all competition. Captain is employed to maintain the harmonious relationship of the members so as to effect 100% teamwork during play. Intrusion from individuals, groups, politics, etc. that are inimical to the team's welfare and interest; possibly bring downfall to the name and glory of his team, the captain should be first to prevent or discourage it.

Everyone is entitle to his opinion, but I think your partly right. It is very hard to understand outright the act of a leader, that's unless you will put you shoes to his own shoes. There are actions, ideas and movement hard to understand. Expert says, the position of a leader is the most lonely job for sometimes you are secluded for things to decide at your own and damn if you do and damn if you don't. If you succeed in your plan you will be recognized and if you fail sorry they will hate you.

That is cricket, always unpredictable. The coin can take any of the sides. A few weeks before Indian cricket team was loosing matches back to back and now it's changed into winning strek. You said it right that all of the Indian cricket team members are so much talented and they are the best. But the problem is that sometime it won't work and will fail together to perform.
