Cricket Burble

Yes, the World Cup was won by the best captain I think. He wasn't faultless leading his players in the field but as a general rule he was more attacking than the captains he came up against.

Intriguing to hear his rationale that as Sri Lanka played two off-spinners Dhoni thought he should bat above Yuvraj - an insight into what made him promote himself above a player who averaged in the 80s in the World Cup.

It came off so he has every right to take the plaudits - he batted superbly. I'm not sure anyone other than Dhoni backed the move though - high risk / high reward I guess.

The Reverse Sweep

Wouldnt disagree there Cricket Burble. No risk = no reward. Dhoni backed himself and reaped the dividends.
