Dhoni - today wearing Jersey No. 7,
playing at 7th position, finishes 7000 ODI runs and
becomes a 7th indian batsman to do so.
(And also making 100 runs partnership for 7th wicket).
What 7nastic day for him."
We are no where near to their bowling attach both spin and fast. Batting is our strength and if we fail there it is always gonna be tough. In the first hour today batting was tough but still we are experienced enough to see through that period initially.
Anyway Dhoni was very good today and he unfortunately didn't get much support from the team.
No thay have a good attack. One of the best spin bowler, one allrounder who is a good spinner and both of these plays all three formats well. Plus they have a very good seam attack which is consistent across the format.
BTW pitch seems to be eased out now so should not be same when they chanse the modest total.
That would be Dhoni's excuse apart from top order needs to take responsibility and score runs.
So the kind of post match statement gets prepared normally by the end of the first inning itself.
But in any case you have to admit that Dhoni somehow manages to play in asking conditions atleast in ODI's and T20.
