Dhoni's complaint about turning pitch & giving it as an excuse for not scoring even respectable total against minnows Bangladesh is absolutely unfathomable & hard to digest.
We are playing in our own country, we can prepare whatever type of pitch we want.
Authority to prepare pitches lies with the host nation & ICC has absolutely no say in it, unless it is absolutely pathetic, dangerous or below average standard.
Remember Ravi Shastri abusing Wankhede curator Sudhir Naik for not preparing pitch as per his liking & so called batting pitch when SA piled on 438 runs during ODI last year ? We lost that game with huge margin.
Then why Shastri is silent now? Why was he tight lipped about our Nagpur fiasco against New Zealand ? It is allegedly prepared as per Shastri's instructions with the thought process that Kiwi's would struggle against spin. But unfortunately for India Kiwis have already done their homework well & picked 3 spinners. And it's our tragedy that what Kiwis could read from the pitch, our stalwarts like Shastris & Dhonis couldn't & we surrendered completely & got buried in the graves created by us for them.
So, Dhoni,,,,nobody's going to buy & trust your excuses about pitches, toss, conditions etc. etc.
I must say Bravado to Minos Bangladesh to almost outplayed India.It remind me the 2007 T20 Final when Joginder was bowled last over and Mishba ul Haq caught by Sresanth. In this match Till 18th over they were winning, 19th over only 6 runs were back India into the Game by Bumrah. Last over again it was 99% in favor of Bangladesh but wicket lost in quick succession put them under tremendous pressure and it was Dhoni who clinch the match on last ball. But Batting, Bowling and Fielding Bangladesh outplayed India. Team India must think to play likes of Dhawan, Rohit, Yuvi and Raina in coming match (s) if qualify. Lastover by Hardik Pandya is a Gamble and can,t be on regular, he already given away 2 fours.
On one side Spin pitches are prepared; then you have only one quality spinner in Ashwin.. Jadeja is free lancer, any thing is bonus from him. Opposition teams, knowing that these are spin pitches take 3 quality spinners, and always have two quality fast bowlers, all of them prove handy and your batsmen look all at sea, call it because of good bowling or big names like Rohit, Shikhar, Raina and Yuvraj are struggling. And when it comes to bowling the only two dependable bowlers are Ashwin and Bhumra, the rest are guests based on their luck for the day.. Is this the team that is going to win World Cup with??? Do we not have better players in places of atleast, shikhar, yuvaraj, Nehra, Jadeja and Pandya (Playing him as a seamer on spin pitch is waste)… Well wait and see......
