Yes, Dhoni has correctly pointing out this fact. With similar grace he should also point out that he is useless both as a batsman and captain in test matches outside subcontinent hence should step down from captaincy. Automatically he will be removed from the team and we can start a rebuilding process.
Dhoni himself is disastoures in keeping..who himself forgot basics of wicketkeeping. He childishly trying runouts infront of stump, not behind....:((( and he speaking abt fielding std's...ht of biasness. Rohit dropped 3 catched..but he Jr, everything is okay for Jadeja,rohit,raina...dhoni politics will ruin indian cricket.

MY FREN SORRY FOR THE INTERRUPTION, IF U SAY GIVE CHANCE TO YOUNGSTER, WHOM DO U WANT TO REPLACE. AT THIS POINT NO RAINA, NO ROHIT, NO SEHWAG ARE MATCHING HIS PRESENT FORM. LEAVE ASIDE HIS OLD AVERAGES. SO DO U STILL THINK HE HAS TO PAVE WAY FOR OTHERS???????? IF YES KEEP THESE RAINA, ROHIT, SEHWAG ASIDE AND GIVE OTHERS A CHANCE. IT WILL BE A FOOLISH MIND TO THINK OF SACHIN WHEN THERE ARE UNDER PERFORMERS THAN THAT OF SACHIN STILL IN TEAM'S PLAYING 11
Well this is not the first time, that Dhoni has been saying things in the press to irk his fans and now colleagues.
Though he has a good record, his public relations management is poor. The first instance I realized this was during the NZ tour when Sehwag hit a few sixes in the 20-20 openers and said in the press that nobody in the team meeting talked about hitting sixes.
I am sure he likes to entertain but does not need Dhoni's approval since he was doing that for a decade. The second instance has been the bowling he has been doing as a WK. This was out of line and even Kapil commented that he was making Test cricket a joke.
Another rather strange this to say is what was once written on cricinfo. He commented about what was written which he did'nt seem to like. Captains typically don't mention the sources of cricket comments made
The latest fiasco also was about how he does not mind leaving it to the end or what Sehwag or Gambhir preffered to hit the winning runs.
The value the top three add compared to Jadeja who cannot be used a bowler in his last match indicates that skills are more important than fielding alone.

The Sachin and Sehwag pair was quite formidable for over a decade and gave India great starts in the 1-dayers.
You cannot take a player on fielding alone or the ability to clap as a leader. Kaif and Ajay Jadeja were examples of brilliant fielders and younsters with plenty of energy.
I think Jadeja as a bowler needs to be a wicket-taker, and has managed only 1 wicket in 42 overs in the CB series.
Well looks like this time Dhoni has really gone far with his selection of names and words. Agreed he has done some good things to the team, but is it right to say something like this about Sachin. This man, the idol of cricket fans all across india has been synonomous with fitness whenever he is playing. Even at this age he puts his heart out on the field, as much as the youngsters backed by the SKIPP DHONI. And however great he has performed recently(i mean the last 2 matches) and prior to that I dont think this guy cannot reach the stature of Sachin, so as to comment him on his fitness/ performance/ team spirit, that too when they are playing together. Is it really being outspoken / talking his mind or is it simple arrogance/ losing his mind??? And isnt gambhir considered the best runner between the wickets in the team. I also recollect an article about him that says that he averages more than anyone in the team as far aas running between the wickets is considered. Can such a player be a dud on the field. Dhoni shud know. Everyone is sloppy on the field at times. Dhoni has had more than just buttered fingers while wicket keeping many times. He has floored many simple chances. And he has to know that everyone has his bad day on the filed. Pcccchhhhhhhh... Mahi babu looks like u r doing a "greg chappel" thing again. A deja vu as far as i can think...watch out and don get caught with ur foot in ur mouth
