In my opinion he has done well for India in both batting and keeping. I regard him as a terrific finisher for India late in their batting innings, or someone who can steady the ship if India are in trouble. He's a great all-rounder, and the right captain for India.
Indian team is at its worst juggle. There is not even showcasing talent like earlier funnier decades. Only 2-3 senior players left, the new comers will just be allowed to make their profile by media and their rivals! Even the other teams have degraded and unknown too! - kunal
Captain's since the 2000/01 series have had a positive win/loss ratio (albeit, many draws too), and with Anil Kumble being the only exception
Sourav Ganguly: Played 49, Won 21, Lost 13, Draw 15
Rahul Dravid: Played 25, Won 8, Lost 6, Draw 11
Virender Sehwag: Played 1, Won 1, Lost 0, Draw 0
Anil Kumble: Played 14, Won 3, Lost 5, Draw 6 M.S. Dhoni: Played 3, Won 3, Lost 0, Draw 0
Dhoni is unbeaten so far in his tenure as test captain.
Cricket is a loosely played game, its very cool. I haven't seen any cricket on tv since the year 2000, when i had started playing in local cricket clubs. I even don't know the names of 8-9 newer indian players nor their skills. I just practice fast bowling and watch cricket classics. Even international teams are boring. So why you asking me to become the captain of indian cricket team? My stats wouldn't be special. Hardly played 20 won 5 lost 7 draw 8. And what can i expect ? A world cup? Lol - kunal
The cricketing shots that M.S.Dhoni plays are all worst, likely played by village cricketeer. This brings the game to disrepute. There are many other players like harbhajan, etc etc which give cricket a bad name! This team would have got banned. If i ever come to bat, then i'll show you that my batting is not like a villager. And even not like sachin t. It is neither a copy from any neighbouring batsmen technique!
Dhoni, no matter how good Indians think he is, is one of the worst players playing pro. He may be the 4th best keeper in the world (behind Haddin and McCullum and Boucher), but he can't bat. his shots are rubbish, and in his career he has only ever gotten about 5 centuries.
