Dhoni - The man

Fourth India - SL ODI. When Dravid was out India needed another 82 runs with 4 wickets in hand. At the crease were Dhoni and Raina. Everyone expected Dhoni to swing hard like he did in Jaipur, but he was strangely quiet. It was Raina who was hitting a few fours and scampering singles. Dhoni showed enough intelligence to score in ones and twos with a single boundary. And when it was down to 12 runs in 29 balls, he hits 2 huge sixes and finished it in style. So finally we have a hitter with brains. It is going to be very difficult to keep Dhoni out of the test team.

if he comes to the test team,wat will happen to our poor dinesh kaarthik??

Tough luck Shekar. Unles Kaarthick proves to be a better keeper than Dhoni, it will be difficult for him to hold his place.

More than dhoni, i am happy for the guy suresh raina. he is quite talented but never got a chance to prove so far in this series and in the last one in srilanka. But when kaif comes in who will go out...jpyadav? raina? or venu?

its got going to be a tough call.
