Nobody can take credit from Bangladeshi youngsters, but is was more casual approach of the Men In Blue that let the hosts to clinch their maiden series win against India. Virat Kohli keeping the wickets without pads gives a clear picture of India’s superiority.
Not only in this series but Dhoni and company has been jaunting on this track since India’s tour of South Africa way back in 2013-14. Since then India has lost four consecutive test series against South Africa (1-0), New Zealand (1-0), England (3=-1) and Australia (2-0). Although less pungent yet quite similar is the fate in ODIs. Of the last 8 ODI series played away from home including The World Cup 2015 and Asia Cup 2013-14, India was able to sees win only in Bangladesh and West Indies tours whereas Australia, New Zealand and South Africa tours were gloomy.
The person who is to be blamed for this dismal performance of Indian cricket team is the first player of the team, the skipper MS Dhoni. Delinquent in his duty as a captain, Dhoniretiered from tests. Statistics suggests that despite holding 70% winning record at home Dhoni struggles to manage even 25% at away venues. The radical decisions in the field that used to come out as miracles that used to come out as miracles have been infringing on Indian team for the last 2 years.
Also Dhoni turning 34 on 7th of July is not sure about his future and participation in 2019 ICC World Cup that will be held in England and Wales. Letting a man who is neither providing results nor beneficial for future preparations to captain the team leads India’s 2019 World Cup dreams in jeopardy.
