  • It’s not just the batting and bowling, stupid

    Dhoni has a lot going for him as a leader, but somebody who keeps passing the buck is going to lose the respect of his team, and then it becomes much harder to make that extra collective effort for a win.

  • A new middle-order should rise out of the ashes of Eden

    Tendulkar did end his run drought in Kolkata with a 76, but even that one time he got past 50 in seven Test matches, he wasn’t able to carry on and make it count, like Pujara did in Ahmedabad or Alastair Cook has been doing for England.
