And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW
Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta
Ganguly and Dhoni are a poor man's version of S.Waugh and Ponting.
Perhaps he's making that comparison in a different way - perhaps poor tacticians, but superb leaders of men.
do you think people will be allowed to make violins?
who's going to make the violins?
Yea Dhoni is a 9 out of 10 in terms of having the "intangibles" and man-management skills but he is unnecessarily defensive at times - I'd give him a 3/10 tactically (assuming five is an average of all international captains). Still not having been defeated in any series he has captained is a good record so you can't say much. Yet. Lose one though and the vultures will be circling in full force.
We are unfairly criticizing Dhoni tbh, he was not the only one to decide the draw, he had the backing of his coaches and team management - prove is the press conference of Duncan Fletcher.
+ What difference does it make to the game except the 'spirit of game' and 'fans'. To Dhoni winning or losing is what matters not fans as he 'does not play for the crowd but for the country' (Yes he said that in WC).
Using this statement, you can always defend his defensive captaincy.
PS: Dhoni has won the IPL title twice too (This and the last year), though his team "CSK" was never the hot favorite but because of his calmness and brains, he won all the nervy matches and clearly was the better captain. Spectators can always observe the better captain, and Dhoni always comes out as the better one whether that be with his calm and steady batting or his moves in the field/bowling changes.
I rate him the best captain I have seen live.

I don't think there's any causal relationship/correlation between being aggressive and being intelligent.
Those two are completely two different qualities. They are as much different as 'being strong' and 'being honest' are, for example.

"I want to raise my hand and say one thing. Those who complain about my love for the game or commitment to the game are clueless. These are the only 2 areas where I give myself 100 out of 100."

For bowlers being able to work over batsmen so smartly and so consistently, Glenn McGrath would have to be up there surely.
