i don't think dhoni have the ability to open, he is like a player who can handle the middle order & can increase the run rate per over.

I think dat he is comfortable with da fast bowlers most, I think he may be used in da power plays,this cud be a very good time for his shoulders to open up

yeah man...i agree to an extent but must add that dhoni cant play swing..esp whn openin the batting so he may b used as an opener here in the sub continent n all but nt all over the world

ya i think he will do wonders in that position.Make full use of the feilding restrictions.Remember that 186 against srilanka.He came before 15 overs in that match.

dhoni is very poor player of moving ball yes if the wicket is flat and an asolute batting paradise then dhoni can be used as opener to disrupt the oppositions plans

WELL that really is a interesting topic to be discussed as sehwag has been sacked from the team and ganguly back ....... who do you think will open for india personally i think it should be GANG-TEN but dhoni too is a solid option what do you think guys

ur thought is correct is very right that india should need a blasting start.as we all know that a good solid start can easily turn decide a match.but dhoni should be kept in his position.because indian bottm-middle order need a guy like dhoni.as dhoni can handle pressure very well.he comes at a time when india need a good batsman who can play sensibly when need and turn the accelerator on when need.with out him in the middle order our top order would come under pressure.and dhoni is used to playing in the middle order.it will take time to adjust to being an opener .as there is a very short time period before the world cup.so no change should be doneto his position.

man the idea is good but i dont think its a long time option.u hve to take into count the stress it would put on him as he hs to keep wickets for more than three hrs.. still,i do think that if any0ne other than gilchrist can do it,it hs to b dhoni still,we cant experiment like this just before the world cup

ya thats a good choice but only when ganguly gets his place back.... but dhoni should b given a chance mayb he proves beneficial

friends i dont think it is a good move to make dhoni as opener....we already have good opening pair of sachin and sehwagh ....but now sehwag is out...still also we can make ganguly to open the innings...its because a left and right combination always rocks..there is gautham gambir, robin uthapha and all
