    MS Dhoni what a player. What a finisher.

    Guy gets too much criticism when he's a match winner. An Average of 50 with the bat is amazing. @Passionate Pakistani

    Dhoni already showing that seniors are supposed to the best of the lot. Pakistan is the only cricketing nation where seniors are the most useless names on the team sheet.

    Dhoni is nowhere near the 2010-11 Dhoni anymore. Age has caught up with him. His perfect finishes come very rarely these days. Now watch him flop spectacularly at the big stage ie the World Cup.

    Hasn't Sarfraz always been hailed as a fighter in the shorter formats? If not for him you would have not even made it to the CT 17 final. He won you that SL game.

    That average is thanks to a large number of not outs because he batted at 6/7 for most of his career.

    That's quite harsh. He's played well over 300 games. Appreciate the fact the guy can still produce a match winning knock when needed.

    Scored over 10k runs as well in 282 innings.

    Even if you take out all not outs, he still averages over 36 which is excellent for a number 6/7.

    Anyways i think its time for India to move on from Dhoni. He is indeed a legend but way too slow and not a finisher at all. Might cost India in an imp knock out match at wc

    Only if we can get biryani Rayudu replaced with Pant. Don't know what Kohli sees in him.

    Raydu, dhoni and Kartik all seem same kind of players. Aussies bowling wasnt great else they would have been in trouble. But i think with Pandya they should be fine. They need a finisher n a hitter.

    Why would you put yourself under scoreboard pressure after winning the toss? Kohli has not learnt anything from the CT 17 final blunder :fp

    It's the series decider. Why would you bowl first unless the conditions are extremely overcast?

    This exact same buffoonry has already costed us 2 world tournaments - the 2003 WC and the 2017 CT.

    With Kohi out, this looks like a tough chase.

    Yes. We trounced every team except Australia. And they were not unbeatable either. We should have made the most of winning the toss in the final.

    230 should never be a tough chase with or without Kohli.

    Malik started his career as a replacement bowler for Saqlain. Worked so hard on his batting that he is now a frontline batsman. Plus he is the best fielder in the team.

    He is now showing signs of what he does best. A run a ball chase now converted to a 9 an over chase. Will take it to the last over and then attempt to become a hero.

    Ahhh, nice story.

    Shadab and Fakhar are very good, he’s a good fielder but not the best.

    Only played VB series and 2016/17 series mentioned it before but Hafeez is a genuine AR Malik is part timer.

    Anyways whoever does better in this ODI series starting from tomorrow is better, I’m backing Hafeez, hope SA keep spinners away from Malik, even trundlers will get him.
