    Well since everyone is baying for Dhoni's blood today.

    The problems I have with Dhoni as Captain is as follows
    -Very Quick to go on the defensive and thinks he has to do everything.
    -He fidgets too much.He is always trying too many different things
    -Innovative while is good I can't help but think he is innovating for the sack of it sometimes.
    - Too many bad excuses when his teams loses.

    I'm sorry hate to sound like I'm psychology student but I think most of it stems from the media and the hype of a pretty boy with good looks who is also possibly intelligent having a some good results against some tough competition.People have hyped him up way too much (He has been ok not great but ok.A lot of his results were because he was in the honeymoon period that a lot of captains have at the start of their captaincy ) and it is putting pressure on him to perform.This I'm afraid will probably only be the beginning but I expect he will improve as gets older .

    He was a bad captain for 2 T20 games i.e 80 overs / just over 1 ODI / one day of a test match. Calling for his head already?

    Dhoni is a very good Test captain. Aggressive in the right way. Don't give a crap about T20 and ODI captaincy or results. Sort of happy they got out, because it'll be some rest before the next tour. He needs to sit out the WI ODI tour. Too much cricket for him over the last 3 years.

    Very true.

    Since 2005, Dhoni has played the maximum no. of International matches (T20I, ODIs, Tests) in the world - 186 matches. Next is Micheal Clarke with 177 matches.

    Add to this 14+15 IPL matches and the total becomes a whopping 215 high pressure contests!!!

    Since WC 07, Dhoni has played in 75 International matches +29 IPL matches = 104 HP matches. This consists of 11 tests, 49 ODIs, 15 T20Is, and 29 IPL matches = 147 days of cricket.

    Holy ****!

    Look at Ponmting. Has hit 28 international hundreds in the last 4 years. Sachin has hit only 14.

    Ponting has played far more than Tendulkar in the period though

    I love how they have an extra sign saying "Pop is dog" in case you didn't catch on by the sign round its neck.

    They've obviously confused 'musical' genres. Should have read 'Rap is dawg'
