MS Dhoni’s miracle mop at work again


The Indian team did a rather unusual thing on Sunday night after they won the T20 series against Sri Lanka in Visakhapatnam. As soon as the presentation ceremony ended, they went for a victory lap around the stadium, something MS Dhoni’s men generally don’t indulge in bilateral series at home. Read what you want into that episode, but in the bigger picture, Dhoni does have a few reasons to be happy about. Yet again, things have fallen in place for Dhoni ahead of a marquee tournament. He has a fascinating track record of such happenstance, but let’s first start with the latest developments. Calls for removing Dhoni with Virat Kohli as the captain for shorter formats was growing louder. Even the BCCI had to publicly defend the incumbent skipper following the team selection meeting for the ODI and T20 series in Australia. The side had been walking limp barely a month ago. The one-day team had a poor 2015 after sparkling in the World Cup, losing the series in Bangladesh, against South Africa at home, and being swept away 1-4 in Australia. The T20 team too hadn’t started well, losing at home to South Africa. – See more at:
