Dhoni and pessimism

While the whole nation starts going ga ga over dhoni and his dhamakas, { particularly that slimes of india }, with the risk of sounding pessimistic, i think we should wait for him to play one series on a fast bouncy track against some quality opposition before we herlad him as the next gilchrist or whatsoever.
To refresh the memory cells, he did come up cropper in the home one-day series against the south-africans !

    To refresh ur memory cells, dont forget dhoni's 144 against pak in the second test match when india was 283/5 and Akthar probably "bowled" a fiery spell.

    That knock saved india from a near certain innings collapse/defeat.

    paks bowlers were being pretty restrictive in the fifth odi. rahul was struggling to score. dhoni simply was amazing.

    Slimes of India !?!?!
    Why do u always dig ur nose into the slimes and the complain of stench ?
    Is it a mark of your so-called intelligence levels that fetched you a seat in IISc?

    Yes , He still has to play Aussies , Kiwis and the Windies ...but sure is better than Parthiv Patel ( Kiran More's top choice ). Dhoni is the only hope to keep that little plonker out of the way.

    very true indeed.. indian media has created a star of Dhoni when he has yet 2 prove himself agaisnt good competions on sporting pitches. We shld wait a few series b4 comparing him 2 greats like gilchrist.
