Tough Time for the National Cricket Team

India has already lost the first two ODIs against Bangladesh in the three-match series and this has raised great conflict and debates among the fans and cricket critics who have also pointed a finger at the ODI skipper Dhoni. For some, Dhoni is incapable of leading his team towards a win and for some Dhoni is disturbed enough to concentrate on the tactics that are required to combat the opponents both physically and mentally. Amidst the rising protest against Dhoni and the demands for removing him from the captainship, many veteran former Indian cricketers and coaches have come up in support of the Captain Cool and have claimed that it is not Dhoni’s fault as a whole to lose the two ODIs against a team of minor qualities and capabilities.

Former Indian cricketer Sunil Gavaskar has stood up in support of Dhoni and says that the decision of being in the captainship or resigning from it is all up to Dhoni and nobody should force or influence him in that.

Gavaskar said, "It is a decision he has to take. Look, you can't take away the achievements from him. He is India's best captain by far. He has done almost everything, be it, T20, ODIs, Champions Trophy or World Cup. He took India to the number one ranking in Tests. So his achievement is manifold."

Chanchal Bhattacharya, the childhood coach of Mahendra Singh Dhoni, is of the opinion that the prevailing atmosphere in the dressing room has greatly affected the skipper. Bhattacharya said, “I don’t know the inside story but we have seen Dhoni play and fight till the last over. If one’s mind is not at peace then it is impossible to play. He is unable to deliver his best because of mental pressure and because of the dressing room’s environment as well as the media. I haven’t spoken to him but I feel the environment of the dressing room is bad.”

Bangladesh scored a six-wicket win over India in Dhaka in the last ODI and this has fuelled up all the controversies regarding the eligibility of Dhoni. But in reality it is totally baseless as in comparison to the wins and good days that Dhoni has brought to the team India, this defeat means nothing.
