Hi friends do you think that Dhoni is the best captain that India has ever got. I feel yes. It would have been great if he would have even won the 5th match against Sri lanka. What do you think?

obviously , dhoni is the one of the best captain india ever had til now.. Chance was thr for clean sweep in the last series against srilanka, but the performance of oppp. was good and so they achieved the score. Also, we were unable to build partership's as wickets were falling at the right tim..

Yes, Dhoni is the best captains India has ever had. He is dymanic and cool and cucumber. Adding to that he has a very strong team which can change things upside down. little bit of luck is also on his side winning the toss . his instincts are also working good for now. So Indian team will definitely become Number 1 in the world under his leadership

I think that Dhoni is a over blown baloon. I do not think that he is a good captain. He is jst very lucky. He always wins all the tosses. Lat year we toured Sri Lanka dhoni won toss in four matches and he took wrong decision in the first match and India lost the match and rest Inda won. In the last match Dhoni lost the toss and also the match. In this year also Dhoni won the toss in the first four matches and also the match. he lost the last toss and also the match. His luck is unbelievable. But the only unlucky thing abot luck is that it wll change some day. Also all the players are in good form and other teams like Australia, pakistan, England, newzealand, and sri lanka are on the decline. I think that dhoni is also that he has got all the sries in the sub continent and he ha not faced a tough tour till now. I think that dhoni is very selfish. His strike rate was 99 before captaincy and is 81 while captaining. this shows that he has started playing slow now. He removed Ganguly saying that he plays very slow but he himself is playing slower than him inspite of the fact that he is young and he a new generation batsman who plays T-20. Dhoni also favours Yuvraj, last year he sayed that seniors shoul contribute more when sachin failed in two matches but he said that yuvi will play all the matches even though he unable to get into double figures in test and ODI. He makes yuvraj play allthe matches evn though he is injured and he asked sachin to rest when he had payed only 5 ODIs in 12 months and he had been wrongly given out in the first 3 matches. He omes to bat at no. 3 when the pitch is good for batting.

I think its very early to say this because I think Dhoni is having a very good time because all the team members are playing fantastically well and so the team is winning every series very easily.but when it comes to captaincy i would say till now Dhoni has done a very good job but comparing him wid all the rest captains of our country is not wise enough now.

hiii...ya dhoni is a very good captain...he has that luck and a good cricketing brain required to lead a team...he handles the tough situations easily and leads the team from the front..but i feel that ganguly is the best captain india has produced...ganguly had that quality of a born leader...he was the one who groomed a lot of talented guys like yuvraj,harbhajan,sehwag,zaheer,kaif...its only because of ganguly they are now playing for india..this was proved when even dhoni made ganguly to captain the side during the last few overs of the last test match that ganguly ...nonetheless dhoni too is a very good captain but i feel only next to ganguly

ya as far I have seen he is one of the best captain India has got.. A captain must encourage his players which he is doing very well..it has been proved by winning 9 matches consecutively which was not made by any other captain!

It is too early to depict dhoni has the best captain of India.. He has much to prove.. He has a great team at this moment.. We cannot forget saurav ganguly who was responsible for bringing players such as yuvraj and harbajan into team.. And kapil dev who has won the only world cup for India..

I think this is not the right time to answer. We first have to see how Dhoni leads his team outside the subcontinent. Also so far Dhoni has been fortunate that all his players have been in good form. We have to see how he leads the way and lifts the team when things are going rough for the team.

well friend it is difficult to say dhoni is only best captain for India.though many captains made their services to lead our country in international position but dhoni made his mark by encouraging freshers and getting best from them...cricket is a game of unpredictability so it is not for sure to win every match but i am proud the way played in entire series....
