ICL: Indian Cricket League

Unhappy Dhoni

Written by Commoner on June 30th, 2008   (525 views)

India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni could play Indian Premier League for more than a month, but he cannot play three successive One Day Internationals in Asia Cup, what a joke. Perhaps it’s all about the greenbacks.

Indian performance in the ground has remained very questionable, and despite of the fact that they beat weaker teams of Pakistan and Hong Kong, and Bangladesh, their lackluster performance in the fielding department remains a problem. Indian fielders have dropped several chances — including two missed opportunities for Gautam Gambhir against Bangladesh. Also many runs were given away due to the sloppy work on the grass.

But Indian captain thinks that it was due to the hectic schedule of the Asia Cup, and it all happened due to the tiredness of the players.

“Each and every player was tired on the field after playing three games in a short time and perhaps that was the reason that we missed chances,” Dhoni said.

At this professional level, such excuses only expose the weakness and nothing else.

      Concerned about too many back to back matches

      Dear Mr Mirza,
      Maybe you need to get a reorientation about T20 and ODIs. T20 gets over in three hours flat and is only a twenty over match. But and ODI is a 50 over match. Not only that IPL did not have any team playing back to back matches and that too 3 times in the same tournament in a span of two weeks. Why don’t you try doing that and then open your mouth and say stuff like greenbags. Not to mention the fact that Team India has to play Sri Lanka in a span of just ten days and then there is still the ICC Champions Trophy and then Australia to bother about before the next year rolls in.

      Dear, You surely need to give Dhoni and Co. a warm wash with a warm meal and some cool massage by any bollywood actress. That would perhaps make them men again.
