    Has more talent than anyone in his middle finger, and ability to smash this attack to smithereens, but just opted to let others do that today.

    Haha to think that he could have robbed us of that knock from Hussey had he not missed that regular off spinner from Hafeez.

    Clarkes career T20I stats are not much different to Dhonis T20I stats.

    Ya Dhoni before this years IPL was pretty bad at T20. Seems to have got back his shots though.

    There certainly was a phase where he was playing pretty poorly and not hitting out, I imagine because he thought he should be playing with more responsibility as captain, sacrificing the thing that made him so good in the first place (also maybe fatigue). Pretty sure he's over it now.

    Haha, you're a joke.

    India were 32/5 when Dhoni came in. And his 9 was the equal second-highest score.

    And I don't remember that Ind/WI game very well, but it wouldn't surprise me if top-order wickets fell then also. I do remember Zaheer/Sharma bowling pus though, a much more likely source of costing India the game.
