I never mentioned that he is the best captain. I said he was a captain who finished where others did not. I can always say that Ganguly was a better captain. But he has earned time considering the actual magnitude of the trophy.
Past performances should be the criteria for the selection in team. Even though you were a great batsman/bowler not at all able to perform consistenly for long then better go back to domestic circuit, get the form back and represent the team again or take the retirement with pride.
As far as Dhoni is concerned it was not he who won the WC it was the whole team. His captaincy was fine but not exceptional.
The way I see it, MSD is not a perfect captain and has many flaws, but he's still our best pick at the moment. No one else who plays international cricket is captaincy material. Kohli might develop into a good captain in 5-6 years time. Until then we have to do with MSD or whoever replaces him when he retires.
You need to give him the opportunity which is not coming for anyone because of him and will continue to be there in future also. So basically only hope would be Kohli because all others will retire with him.
He needs opportunities. Dhoni should be "rested" and others should be groomed for the future i guess.
Exactly. Saying Gambhir has not proved or 'much' is kinda unfair until you give him chance. Based on current Mr. Dhoni's form and decisions, he can be 'rested' for a series or two and let someone else try out.
India maintains the 'tradition' and Pakistan once again fail to break the jinx of defeating India in a World Cup (any format)/
Everytime till date, India met Pakistan in a WorldCup, India has defeated Pakistan.
