It is surprising to learn Dhony joking on Sreesanth after the impressive performance. He is finding fault with his aggression and taking more time to complete deliveries. I think Dhoni is jealous and not want to give credit to Sreesanth.Dhoni should not have told these in open. A fine captain should talk in private and resolve.
People who watched closly his first and second innings can say that Laxman have mastered how to play short balls which was his weakness. He hit a six (yes six!) in first innings of a short ball from Styn.
Amidst all this we don't hear for a change, the name of a certain records master-blaster. Why? Cos India overcame a challenge and won, and SRT never plays a part in such efforts.
Last week, the world was treated to this ludicrous spectacle. An entire nation of blind fantards and Indian media went overboard for days celebrating yet another SRT super useless record.
It was stupefying, what were these clowns thinking? For chrissake Ind got walloped badly, it was an awful humiliation. In that backdrop, to celebrate an individual record, that of a batsman that didn't even try to avoid an innings defeat?
Just shows what indian fantards value in the end. Indiv records. who cares if the team loses, and so badly. It was shameful as the world laughed at India.
Now this week, Ind are possibly going to win cos a great unheralded Hero - VVS Laxman. Ppl are still celebrating that useless SRT record instead of applauding this matchwinner VVS.
Need the matchwinners, not record holders. Need VVS, Bevan types.

Guys be ready sachin will give indian public a lot of happy moments, not by winning world cup but by making new records, completing his century of centuries against teams like Bangaldesh, kenya and Ireland. And our stupid media will laud it as winning world cup is nothing against the record of centuries
my god... i have never seen such a bouncer from any indian bowler... am always confused,y cant indians bowl bouncers on foreign pitcher, where indian batsmen are bombarded with bouncers.... well done sree... that ball will remain in my memmory for long....

Kallis will remember that ball for a long time. It was good to watch because for long Indians have always been at the receiving end of such fierce bowling and verbal abuse from Donald, Akthar, Ambrose, Brett Lee. Indian bowlers never attempted to bowl a single bouncer or sledge the opposition for some reason. Maybe they were afraid they will get bounced when they go to bat. Now the tables have finally turned.

do not talk rubbish on sachin. In the 176 test matches played for India in which india won 61 matches in which his avearge is 67.56 which is more than his career avg. is that not enough for you on sachin usefulness to the indian team.

Dhoni is the best captain so far.Winning percentage above 60%.Thats amazing.What else u expect from a captain/Batsman/Wicketkeeper?His wicket keeping is good.His captaincy has to be appreciated.(he rotated the bowling very nicely according to the situation).His batting is not bad.Leading run getter from 2 matches.What else?Only thing what Dhoni should do now is immprove his batting technique (he can learn from Dravid and Lakshman)and win the one day series with SA.Definitely Dhoni is the best captain India ever produced.Nobody can challenge it.People are saying Luck plays the part.There is absolutely no term called LUCK in sports.
