Dhoni can't Bat Salla... obvious!!..

...SUITS HIM!!.. ISN'T IT??..


The word is out on the streets now.. well observed.. established...

If Pappu can’t dance…

If Himesh can’t sing…

If Orangutans can’t fly..

And if Saitans can’t swim…

Dhoni cannot Bat…


and m sure whoever watched the T20 yesterday between India and long(est)-time-rivals England, can't deny this..

I was always two-minded about Dhoni’s batting brilliance.. While one part believed in his stats.. (the batsman with the healthy average plays good.. matter of fact everyone!!) and another part (which watched the matches and) thought.. that how come a first-rate batsman hit the ball with full vigor on the leg side, yet the ball goes grudgingly to the off??.. well..

How can a “celebrity” batsman, a specialist captain, a mutiny in Indian willow-ers, coming out to the crease with almost half the innings left, and on stage-ing till the end, making sure his country doesn’t win the must-win match (even by fluke), remain unscathed.. so here I go Mr. Dho.. (call him star and I’ll give you glasses…)

I kept on telling myself, that he can’t be such an idiot.. he must have made some strong stratagem and must be playing with a vow to win.. but as I saw the overs passing by, and didn’t discern any change of approach in our *star* batsman’s way of handling the wood, Mr. DHO-GO jst lost one half of a not-against-dhoni cricket follower…

At the end of 17th over, I saw the opponent captain wearing a more tense look than our no-emo-for-the-promo captain… Collinwood, knew he was on the verge of wining, still made sure everything was perfect.. but our doodh-oni was as cool as cucumber… He was sure we were going to loose.. “so why take pain??”.. All I had for him were slang s!.. I was literally uttering them in a high voice.. With every planned-looking single he took, I couldn’t control my urge to hate him.. and slangs were coming out for gratis..

Well.. the way he’s always been.. “all show no skill”.. at the end he registered a good-looking crush of only 3 runs.. but had Yusuf Pathan been out(was almost slayed by a run-out.. dhoni again), it could easily have been 30… hitting his 3rd boundary off the last delivery(-the only boundary he hit.. rest were knicks!!..) the captain walked out off Lord’s.. the same ground where India once lifted the World Cup in spite of being overly under-rated… the World Champions of T20 were literally punted out of the tournament which they(along with the whole country) believed belonged to them.. as said.. //there is a lot to cry for at the end, when the end is gloomy//… I was over-flowing with rage.. all of which cannot be described..

I turned the pages of the newspaper the next day, and saw..

MS DHONI--30 runs off 20 balls..

and I didn’t bother to read the rest.. didn’t bother to read his clarification that it’s a game, winning and loosing bear equal probabilities blahh blHHH..

And as the day progressed I learned I was not alone.. some effigies were burnt too..(not that I feel overjoyed about it).. but we all have our way to show anger.. And as the rage didn’t get any milder in 24 hours, I decided to post this..

Hope he reads this!!.

Finally!finally! saw my views being posted by my very anti friend who more often than not disagrees with me over cricket.Although you missed the trick here,how could he squeeze the ball to the off side when he is a predominantly leg side player(even his square cuts end at the fine leg region).Still,the sports page would say "Even Dhoni's heroics couldn't save team India" and the report would follow- Despite Indian captain belligerent knock of 30 scored at a staggering strike rate of 150, team India slumped to second straight defeat in the tournament and the defending champions are no longer in competition thanks to woeful bowling and an equally nonchalant batting in the middle order" and a short little article at the end of the page say "BCCI supports team India"
Why is no one blaming dhoni??
Only his 'un'-selfless batting forced India to bow out.
Except for some mammoth scores against the minnows and lots of not outs(when the team is already destined to win) to sustain his batting average,Dhoni is the joke of the century.I feel pity for the kids out there who try to emulate dhoni's batting style.
It would have been better had India sent it's old warhorses in the demanding and testing condition and not another subcontinent 'joe'.

Shut up dickheads Dhoni is a nice captain with good work ethics. He is not a machine and with such busy schedules its hard for players to keep focus.

Do not worry he will bounce back and will give his 100%

@who called us dickheads..
your passion for the indian captain shows dude.. and it's highlighted in your animosity.. well the captain is given the responsibility of handling a team.. never forced.. so when someones grabs the opportunity, then he must put his 100%.. no way out.. its his duty.. it's for what he is paid..
well.. even i hope dhoni bounces back.. and learns to play..

@Dickhead:I guess you are either from dhoni's gay fan base or you aren't aware of the nuances of cricket or you are from jharkhand,ranchi to be precise(yes I am racist..)
ps:I can well imagine your favorite short is a lofted heave over midwicket that goes dragging to the mid-on fielder..lol
