A lot was said and written about Dhoni the batsman ahead of the test series against the Aussies in India. Many said : ‘A captain may be as good as his team, but it’s no one’s fault if he fails with the bat, ball or both’- Whew ! that’s being really nasty to him. Dhoni’s intensity during the course of his unbeaten 206 yesterday, during the first test-match at Chennai, made one thing clear. He is here to stay, both as a batsman and and as captain. And I am sure, his marvelous knock has earned him immunity from criticism, at least for the remainder of the test series. The way he demolished the inexperienced attack of the bowlers and their plans – brought to the fore his ruthlessness.
Way to go, Dhoni ! Take on more of the off-spinner Nathan Lyon !!
