Poor stuff from Dhoni... hope he does that more frequently and loses that undeserved Captain Cool moniker.
Should get fined for this and probably will. Gavaskar to then accuse the officials of racism... im calling it now

Reverse sweep, Nicholas? Really?
Four runs and all, but talk about opening your door to Captain Cock-up.
Compton's first Test boundary; wouldn't have been betting on it being a reverse sweep, myself, but it was a good shot all the same. I really think he needs to be more assertive against Yadav though; if he'd got that full toss in a county fixture he'd have put it away 999 times out of 1000, which just shows where his head is.

Well, there is the moment the reverse sweep became mainstream in test cricket. A debutant opener who struggled first dig playing it on 6*.

#408. Sixty three not out forever.
However this innings turns out for him, and however bad he looks right now, I've more sympathy for Compton. First test, batting out of position and all that. And he is the only one in the top six who has never played a test in the SC. For all the talk of how inexperienced we are in these conditions, the rest of them have actually played quite a few times in the SC or UAE.
