Irrespective of what takes place to the rest of his cricketing career, Mahendra Singh Dhoni will generally be remembered for winning the 2011 Planet Cup with that magnificent six, at the Wankhede Stadium.

The way he just stood there watching the ball sail into the crowd and then nonchalantly swished the bat about in his left hand is an indelible memory and brings the goosebumps even now.

If any gesture actually signified ‘ cool,’ it was that. It was shot that won the World Cup and fulfilled the dreams and aspirations of a cricket mad nation after 28 years of wait. But the perpetrator of that moment was just so calm when all else about him was pure bedlam. Possessing met him a couple of days immediately after that super moment, I told him that if I know that my time is up in this globe then would like to see that shot and then leave with a smile my face.

Cricket being the remarkable leveller has now brought about the turn of the wheel for the substantially adored skipper, who is the target of the ire of Indian supporters.

One of the a large number of admirable qualities of the Indian skipper is his willingness to front up the media when the team is not performing effectively. We all know that he is hardly in the frame when the trophy is getting passed on and it’s the fringe players and assistance employees, who are invariably in the front row the photographs which are splashed all round India and the planet.

On the days when the group does properly, he sends the player who has performed to meet the media. But when the group has been defeated, he is the 1 who goes to bear the fury of the media. He has stated that he is ready to be the punching bag if it indicates that the pressure on the rest of his group is diluted. It requires supreme courage and self-assurance to go a press conference when the team has lost and that as well immediately after the match is over, when the media sit back and analyse what went wrong.

The inquiries will be sharp and particularly irreverent and way more sometimes than not bordering on perceptions, gossip and not real knowledge.

To be able to handle all that with a smile and patience is a genuinely splendid excellent, and what the media should certainly understand is that by carrying out so he is helping them in their jobs.

In spite of getting pilloried in the media in current times, Dhoni understands their tension and is prepared to help. The 4 pillars of the game are players, administration, media and the fans. When they perform well then the fifth pillar the sponsors come on board to strengthen the structure.

What the Indian skipper’s frequent interaction with the media shows is his respect and understanding of their function in making this game trendy.

Hopefully, the media will also appreciate that and while that need to not mean that there will need to be no criticism of him, they ought to be able to distinguish him from one who appreciate their difficulties.

He is not amongst those who refuse to meet the media, and do their operate by means of their public relations agencies.

They also have their own males in the media who will write what they want to be written about themselves and so get their views expressed. They know that the media needs them significantly more than they will need the media and whilst they have their personal spokespersons, they don’t honestly have to meet anybody.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni may possibly not remain too extended as the skipper, going by the way the group is performing at the moment.

As always the clamour is for a alter at the leading rather than dropping the non performing players. If that happens then the media greater pray that the next individual, who takes over the charge, appreciates their issues as a lot as the present skipper does.

If the naming of an initial 17 man squad raised eyebrows, the dropping of Nathan Hauritz in favour of Xavier Doherty caused just as much surprise.

Hauritz has hardly set the world alight since breaking into the team three years ago, but he did have the unenviable task of following Shane Warne and would have considered himself a likely starter in Brisbane next week.

Doherty meanwhile has only taken three five-wicket hauls in first-class cricket and has a bowling average of 48. However, it appears his inclusion is a direct response to Kevin Pietersen's apparent weakness to left arm spinners.

Pietersen was clean bowled by Steve O'Keefe of Australia A last week, the latest in a line of left arm bowlers who have profited when bowling to the South African born star.

When he is on form Pietersen can be a destructive upper order batsmen and is capable of tipping the game in England's direction at any given moment, something Australia are all too aware of and the Ashes betting tips reflect this.

The inclusion of Doherty therefore highlights the importance they are placing on getting Pietersen out early, and it is up to him no to prove he can handle left arm spinners. Anyone looking to bet on top England batsman should bear in mind they may be gambling on KP sorting out this little problem.

If he can then he will join an England upper order in fine form heading to the Gabba for the first Test.

Ian Bell joined Alastair Cook and Andrew Strauss in hitting a century in the warm up games, while Paul Collingwood scored a gutsy 89.

If Pietersen can eradicate the mistakes in his game that make him vulnerable to spin then England will have a solid run-filled batting line up capable of putting the Aussies under pressure.{jcomments on}
