KKR had its nightmarish looses when this guy captained the side. Now that they have removed him from the team and won the title. He wants to hide his face as loosing captain/player and made such idiotic comments on Dhoni's captaincy. He forgot that he also led his new team to miserable losses. Mr.Gang please shut your mouth and stop blabbering, you are not worth for it. Dhoni is an uncomparable legend!

Hello Mr Partha, Cool. Just think about team India acheivements with Dhoni's captaincy.
1. T20 World Cup
2. ODI World Cup
3. No.1 Spot in Test Rankings for more than an year.
4. Three titles for his club team CSK.
Dhoni was the first test captain to have most percentage of test wins and less percentage of test losses before those two miserable overseas series. Those two series 0-8 because of the team not interested to play test match for two reasons.
1. They just won the world cup.
2. They have earned a lot in IPL. IPL is the one to blame for test losses but not the captain.

I did not support Dhoni since he captains CSK, I started supporting CSK since it is lead by legend Dhoni. In addition I also support and happy with KKR win since u-s-e-l-e-s-s Ganguly is not in the team to s-c-r-e-w. Everybody in IPL is proving themselves on different seasons/occasions except this big looser G-a-n-g-u-l-y. When Ganguly captioned India, he was fortunate enough to make ignorable records since he had strong team. So, Stop supporting u-s-e-l-e-s-s people and start enjoying the nail-biting matches like IPL 2012 final.

Just a reminder those who wants to abuse Saurav

Remember that Ganguly has made a strong Indian team from the shadow of Match fixing scandals and the captaincy failure of Sachin. He was even close to win the worldcup in 2003 apart from a great success in Australia and England series. Remember he never lost to Australia 0-4 or England 0-4. He just have his on e of the choice for present test captain.

Gambhir Vs Dhoni
by Abstract baba on May 29, 2012 08:08 PM

Gambhir faked injury in recent tests ..Atleast Dhoni had the mental stamina to face defeat.. Gambhir is no Dravid or a Laxman or a sachin in Test cricket. He is a very ordinary batsman who cannot face the short ball. BCCI needs to seriously rethink if IPL is going to be the basis of selecting and deciding Indias future especially in Test cricket.

Obvious but not final choice

Why not Dhoni the world cup winning team captain. But he lost Australia and England series prior to IPL. And gambhir can be included as Vice-captain in the test.

Win and Lose are the part of the game ! But Gambhir cannot tolerate pressure. His face expression clearly shows. He will scramble under pressure.

I don't agree with dada....
by Anurag Rathore on May 29, 2012 12:30 PM

Gambhir recent performance in test format shows he can't be considered as contender for captaincy in test format. The 2nd thing is Dhoni is doing well as captain so there is no need to change captaincy.

Gambir will be better captain
by Mahesh V on May 29, 2012 08:20 AM

Dhoni is good in t20 and ODI formats. Dhoni is an average player when it comes to test matches. He is in the test team because of being captain and not because of performances. Better Gambhir be made captain of test team.

Gambhir is not even close to being a captain. He will fail miserably, I am seen his expressiveness on the field, even Dhoni has pointed thi out that Gambhir is more expressive than him. I think Dhoni is the best man in the current team, he keeps cool always, and is a better cricketer than Gambhir. One IPL title doesnt change anything, even Viru came very close to win the title...

only a fool will think that gambhir is in the fray because of ipl..hes been a unsung jewel in our test line up..media has been talking about big three but have failed to highlight gambhirs contribution in all formats..he has shown the temperament in tests and hes shrewd..

Dhoni can play well under pressure and also lead the team with out any problem

Gambir will not play well if he is Captain.
