An open letter to MS Dhoni from an Indian Cricket Fan


It was only under your imperial and majestic leadership that Indian cricket team triumphed to silverware in all the major ICC events. There was a drought of World cup glories for 24 long years until you commanded your troops to the famous T-20 World Cup victory in 2007. It was under your valiant leadership that India lifted the 2011 World Cup after 28 years of turmoil. And it was your swashbuckling batting in the final which ensured the splendid win when you led from the front in style.

Many media persons and Indian people regard you as leader who favors his blue eyed boys like Jadeja, Ashwin, Rohit and Ishant. While many believe that you are responsible for the exit of senior players from the team. Some people got red faced when you had opted for that batting rotation policy for top three i.e Sachin, Sehwag and Gambhir in 2011/12  Australian ODI tri- series down under which had also sparked many rumors about the possible rift in the side.

Some consider that you have been very lucky throughout your career as you had the possession of a great team as well as the backing of BCCI. (continued in next page..)
