  1. The Indian cricket world was shocked when Mahendra Singh Dhoni decided to give up his Chennai Super Kings captaincy mere days ahead of the beginning of the 2022 edition of the Indian Premier League. Earlier this week, the official Twitter handle of the Chennai franchise issued an official statement in which Dhoni has removed himself from the captain’s position and announced the elite-level all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja to be his successor and the face of the franchise going forward. Official Statement #WhistlePodu #Yellove @msdhoni @imjadeja — Chennai Super Kings (@ChennaiIPL) March 24, 2022 Overjoyed by the fact that a man of MS Dhoni’s stature felt as if her husband was the right man to replace him as the CSK skipper, Ravindra Jadeja’s wife, Rivaba Ravindrasinh Jadeja, hopped on Facebook to share a heartwarming message for Dhoni, thanking and adoring him for stepping aside and making way to Ravindra Jadeja while also assuring that Dhoni would always remain the ‘Thala’ of the Whistle Podu army. “Congratulations to You (Ravindra Jadeja) for achieving this feat and u thoroughly deserved it! And thank u very much Mahi bhai for believing in his ability and giving him this opportunity! You’d always remain his leader and shall always be the Thala of the team,” Mrs Jadeja wrote from her official ‘Public Figure’ Facebook page. Rivaba Jadeja is an active politician who was born in 1990 to businessman Hardev Singh Solanki and Indian Railways employee Prafullaba Solanki. She is also the niece of Hari Singh Solanki, a Congress politician. Rivaba Jadeja, originally Riva Solanki, graduated from the Atmiya Institute of Technology and Science in Rajkot with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. She was the president of the women's section of the Karni Sena before formally joining the BJP in 2019 in the presence of Gujarat Agriculture Minister R C Faldu and MP from Jamnagar, Poonam Madam. View this post on Instagram It was at a party that Ravindra Jadeja met his future wife. Rivaba was already a close friend of Jadeja's sister Naina before meeting the Indian all-rounder. The two struck it up during the party and began dating shortly after. They didn't have to wait long before getting engaged on February 5, 2016, at 'Jaddu's Food Field,' a restaurant owned by the batsman himself. The cricketer used his Twitter account to inform his followers of the news. Nidhyana, their gorgeous baby, was born in 2017, and the couple are now proud parents. They like to keep their personal lives out of the spotlight as much as possible. As a result, they don't post images of their daughter to their social media sites. View this post on Instagram Proud parents to a daughter, Nidhyana, who was born in 2017, the Jadejas prefer to keep as much of their personal life hidden from view as possible. As a result, they don't post pictures of their daughter on social media. View the full article
  2. Rohit Sharma made a dream start to his captaincy stint across formats as he won 14 games on the trot since he was announced as Team India captain in all three formats. Rohit replaced Virat Kohli as the skipper and has clean swept New Zealand, the West Indies and Sri Lanka at home. At home, Rohit's record as captain is astonishing. The opening batter has given youngsters a chance but even the constant changing and chopping has not affected the outcome of the match. Captain Rohit Sharma Is Born To Win Matches.. 14 Consecutive Win For India Under His Captaincy... ROHIT UNBEATABLE SHARMA @ImRo45 | #RohitSharma pic.twitter.com/C0vOYFhfe2 — Rohan Sharma (@Imrohansharma45) March 14, 2022 Cricket fans and former cricketers praised Rohit for his leadership skills as India hammered Sri Lanka to sweep the Test series 2-0. However, former India batter Mohammad Kaif's praise for Rohit and head coach Rahul Dravid raised a few eyebrows. While praising Rohit and Dravid, Kaif downplayed the work done over the years by former skipper Virat Kohli and ex-India coach Ravi Shastri. How many wins as Test captain, you ask? It's a perfect start for India under Rohit Sharma's captaincy as they move up in the #WTC23 standings with the win in Bengaluru ⬆ Latest standings https://t.co/wc8AlX8YiA pic.twitter.com/nPEZ9X4oMl — ICC (@ICC) March 14, 2022 "KL, Rohit, Vihari, Kohli, Iyer, Pant, Jadeja, Ash, Bumrah, Shami and many No.11 options ... Suddenly, it all looks fine. Under Rohit and Dravid, a world-beating Test unit is taking shape," Kaif tweeted. KL, Rohit, Vihari, Kohli, Iyer, Pant, Jadeja, Ash, Bumrah, Shami and many No.11 options ... Suddenly, it all looks fine. Under Rohit and Dravid, a world beating Test unit is taking shape. — Mohammad Kaif (@MohammadKaif) March 15, 2022 Fans did not like the open display of favouritism by a former international cricketer and fumed at Kaif on social media. Currently it looks all fine? Stop favouritism & pipe down. https://t.co/DX9FaTQAhL — Biki Sharma.

The names you have mentioned all made their debuts before 2017, except Iyer, and who was the captain and coach back then?#BCCI https://t.co/czPB1Rwetb — Arasu (@Arasu2021) March 15, 2022Really? Best travelling team across the globe for the past 5 years and suddenly looking fine. https://t.co/qyRFTdZkTv — Raghul R (@Raghul_R_) March 15, 2022With due respect this tweet is utter stupidity. Virat led Indian team (i.e the same team) has been dominating world cricket for the past few years. https://t.co/IJEoFdQXGK — Aznan Khan (@khan_aznan) March 15, 2022While Rohit has been exceptional as a captain, he has not been challenged much. The 34-year-old is yet to captain the team in overseas conditions and it will be unfair to judge him based on the recent series. On the other hand, Kohli changed the way India went about their business on foreign shores, especially in Test cricket. Under Kohli, India won its first Test series in Australia and are also 2-1 up against England in a postponed series which will conclude later this year. One more photo from this afternoon's presentation ceremony. Virat Kohli kissing the Border-Gavaskar Trophy pic.twitter.com/ZUI3Vbn7qy — Rick Eyre on cricket (@rickeyrecricket) January 7, 2019 Apart from that postponed Test, Rohit's biggest test will be the upcoming T20 World Cup, scheduled to be held in Australia, starting October. If Rohit can manage to clinch the title, maybe then we can compare his leadership skills with that of Kohli. View the full article
  3. With the kind of innings that Ishan Kishan played in the first T20I against the touring Sri Lankan side, his perception has taken an absolute U-turn in the eyes of the critics so much so that some of them have even started placing him ahead of the former Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni in the shortest format of the game. Kishan, who was bought by the Mumbai Indians for a whopping Rs. 15.25 crore during the IPL 2022 mega auction, was absolutely brilliant as the opening batter for the Men in Blue. During his time in the middle, he shared 89 runs in just 56 deliveries. His century was missed out when he gave away a huge top-edge on a pull-short and was caught by Janith Liyanage at square leg. View this post on Instagram Nonetheless, Kishan’s work on the pitch was good enough to help skipper Rohit Sharma’s side make a hefty total of 199-runs which proved too much for the Lankan Lions to chase within 20 overs. Kishan was also awarded the ‘Player of the Match’ aware at the end of the evening for putting on a show with his blade. It was later revealed to the cricketing community that the massive innings played by the 23-year old made him the owner of a new world record. His 89-run knock is now the highest individual score by any Indian wicketkeeper batter in the shortest format of the game that’s played at an international level. Ishan Kishan 89 runs - highest individual score by an Indian wicket-keeper in T20I. — Johns. (@CricCrazyJohns) February 24, 2022 In the past and the present, Team India has produced some brilliant hitters who have also donned the role of the man behind the stumps. Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Rishabh Pant are the leading names on the list in terms of heritage and their impact on the squad. Even KL Rahul, who acted as the squad’s glovesman a couple of years ago when Pant had suffered a head concussion, is an excellent player of this format. However, in terms of the number of haters each of these players have, Dhoni once again takes the top spot and it did not take his non-believers to simply start comparing his batting record with Kishan’s achievements from the first match against Sri Lanka. Dhobi has set such low standards in T2OI as wk batsman that everytime a wk batman comes to bat, a new record is created. — Alpha (@AlphaMaleKohli) February 24, 2022MS has 2 in 98. Surely an upgrade. — Eklavya (@IStanTheGOAT_18) February 24, 2022Dhoni would have easily scored a hundred if he opened against this kind of sl attack — Vikram (@Abhimanyu86156) February 24, 2022Best wicketkeeper batsman from jharkhand — Abhishek (@be_mewadi) February 24, 2022The narrative was that despite 98 international matches and batting in 85 of them, Dhoni’s highest score was just 56 runs, which was toppled by a huge margin by Kishan, who is just 8-matches old. While there are loads of issues with such comparisons, the biggest problem here is that while Kishan is a top-order batter and Dhoni was often played the role of the finisher. The southpaw generally opens the Indian batting order and therefore has more balls and greater freedom to take his time and go for bigger shots. Dhoni, on the other hand, never had the luxury of doing the same. His role was either to start swinging for the fences as he entered the ground to help his side chase down a total or to play a slow and sensible innings, act as the anchor that guides the innings in trouble and ensure to put enough runs on the board.

  6. Sourav Ganguly's term as president of the BCCI, like his time as captain of the Indian cricket team, has had its ups and downs. India played their first-ever Day/Night Test under Ganguly, while the women's squad competed in Tests in England and Australia, including a pink-ball game under lights. Furthermore, one of the most difficult challenges the BCCI encountered was organising the IPL in the midst of a pandemic, which Ganguly overcame not once but twice by holding the world's largest T20 league in the United Arab Emirates. Despite this, the public continues to have conflicting feelings about Ganguly's candidacy for BCCI president. View this post on Instagram As Ganguly's three-year term as BCCI president comes to an end in September-October this year, the former India captain revealed that he is still unsure of what kind of legacy he would leave. Instead, Ganguly has delegated to the public the task of determining whether the 49-year-old was a success or a failure as president of the BCCI. "I don't think it's more challenging. What's my legacy? Well, I won't be able to tell it now. Let's see what happens. It is up to you all to judge my legacy, it is what it is. But it has been under tough circumstances due to Covid-19 over the last two years. The pandemic has wreaked havoc all over the world and we are fortunate that we could still manage to get a majority of cricket done," Ganguly told Sportstar in an interview. View this post on Instagram The purported disagreement between Ganguly and former India captain Virat Kohli has been the biggest setback in Ganguly's tenure as BCCI president. The whole affair started when Kohli, who had stood down as India's T20I captain, was also stripped of his ODI captaincy. What made matters worse was Kohli and Ganguly's contrasting views on how the board reacted to Virat's decision to step down as India's T20I captain. While Ganguly claimed that he and the BCCI had asked Kohli to stay on, the former captain denied this. View this post on Instagram This resulted in a back-and-forth dice roll. The entire controversy escalated to a climax with Kohli standing down as India's Test captain following the team's 1-2 Test series loss to South Africa, thereby removing him from command of any team. Many believe Kohli's decision to quit as India's Test captain was influenced by the board's decision to fire him as ODI captain. The tale took another turn when it was alleged that Ganguly was going to serve Kohli with a ‘show-cause notice’ when he was stopped, despite the BCCI president vehemently denying any such allegations. View this post on Instagram Regardless of the obvious difference between two of the most iconic people within the Indian cricket fraternity, nobody can criticise Ganguly for trying to do new things and making Indian cricket significantly more exciting during his tenure as the BCCI president. Yes, the Men in Blue did go through some tough losses but with the pandemic practically ruining each and every plan that the Indian cricket board had for its players both domestic and international, it is safe to say that Dada did his best to play the game with the cards he was dealt.

  7. For the first time on this tour, India’s regular red-ball skipper Virat Kohli attended a press conference. Attending his first virtual press conference of the tour, Kohli shared terrific news with the Indian supporters as he confirmed his availability for the series finale, which gets underway on Tuesday (January 11) in Cape Town. He had missed the second Test due to upper back spasm. © Reuters From his own batting form to Ajinkya Rahane and Cheteshwar Pujara’s performance in Johannesburg, the Indian talisman touched upon many things during the press conference that lasted over 20 minutes. The 33-year-old cricketer also reflected on how the team has fared so far under his captaincy in the game’s most challenging format. © Reuters The circumstances under which Kohli took over the team's mantle wasn’t ideal. India had just lost yet another Test series Down Under and his predecessor MS Dhoni shocked the whole world by calling time on his Test career in the middle of the 2104/15 tour. Reflecting on the team’s performance since he took over, Kohli said: “When I took over as the captain, we were No.7 in the world. To be fair, we can't even relate to that reality anymore because we’ve been No.1 for four-five years in a row now.” © Reuters “It’s been a collective commitment, passion and almost a madness of the whole squad but I obviously had to lay down a vision and path that we had to follow and lead from the front. “Because I knew I will have to play with very high intensity to drive this passion and this motivation and this environment in the team where we are looking forward to arriving on the field everyday of a Test match and being optimistic that we can win from any situation,” he added. © Reuters Kohli’s comments evoked mixed reaction on social media. Some fans credited his inspiring leadership for taking Indian cricket to new heights and making Team India the best Test side in the world, in both home and away conditions. Then, there were people who accused Kohli of taking a subtle dig at Dhoni’s legacy as India’s Test captain by undermining the role of his predecessor under whom India reached the pinnacle of red-ball cricket and attained the number one ranking for the first time in history. Indirect dig on Mahi bhai......! — Akram Khan (@AkramK2108) January 10, 2022Such an arrogant statement can come from Kohli only!he conviniently forgot he took over the mantle from Dhoni who taught him what captaincy is! — Ayaskanta Mohanty (@21Mohanty) January 10, 2022HE REALLY BODIED DHONI WTF?? — FDJ (@KushagraFCB) January 10, 2022THala also took india to no. 1 in tests too.... Don't forget !! Everyone face bad time — Vikas (@vikky1608) January 10, 2022Bodied my thala — Gursewak Singh (@gursewak_45_17) January 10, 2022Virat bhai yeh kya keh diya — RIPAN (@RIPANJAIHIND) January 10, 2022Indirectly he is saying "When I took over as captain in Tests,Thala left us at No.7 in the world. We can't even relate to that reality anymore since we've been No 1 for so long under me". Cmon Dhoni FC it's time to Counter — KKR Bhakt (@KKRSince2011) January 10, 2022No doubt, under Kohli’s tutelage Team India has come a long way in Test cricket but we should not forget that it was Dhoni who took him under his wings and groomed him to take over the team's mantle in the future.

  9. Till the time he was captain, Virat Kohli always led Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) with great passion and commitment. Under his leadership, the franchise played some incredible cricket and even came close to winning the title in 2016 when they reached the final but came up short against SunRisers Hyderabad in the summit clash. From a personal point of view, Kohli always led by example and broke several records, establishing himself as the most prolific run-scorer in the tournament. © Instagram Virat Kohli Despite that, former England captain and cricket expert Michael Vaughan feels that people will not remember him fondly as an RCB captain, solely because of the fact that he didn’t win any silverware and that is what defines the legacy of a successful leader. Speaking to Cricbuzz, Vaughan said that Kohli would be remembered as a skipper who never won anything and more than fans he would himself consider his IPL captaincy tenure as a failure as he couldn’t guide his team to any titles. “His legacy as captain in IPL cricket would be one that didn’t win. That’s what it’s about – high-level sport is about getting over the line, winning trophies, particularly when you’re at the standard of what Virat Kohli is at. I’m certainly not saying that he is, but he will see himself as a failure in IPL captaincy – because he is such a driven player and person – since he’s not got that trophy in his hands,” Vaughan said in a Cricbuzz video. The 46-year-old further argued that while Kohli has taken Indian cricket to new heights in the longest format, he hasn’t been able to do the same in the limited-overs cricket -- be it for India or RCB. He has fallen way behind against the likes of MS Dhoni, Eoin Morgan, and Rohit Sharma when it comes to the white-ball captaincy. © Instagram Virat Kohli “In terms of what Virat is doing with the Test team and Test match cricket, developing the Indian team, he is terrific. You’d have to say and be honest, that in one-day cricket and T20 for the national side and the Royal Challengers Bangalore, he has fallen a long way short,” Vaughan said. The former England captain also felt that this year's RCB squad was the most balanced unit that they ever put on the field and given the players that were at his disposal this perhaps was their best chance of ending their title drought. © Instagram Virat Kohli “The talent and the squad that he has to work with is right up there with the best. The RCB team over the years is very top-heavy with the batting. This year, with the quality of Maxwell and Harshal Patel and Chahal, they had the bowling to match the batting, and yet they have fallen short,” he further added. Yes, Vaughan is right in saying that it’s the number of trophies that define the legacy of any leader but that doesn’t take away from the fact that it’s a sport and only one team can win. Over the years, we have seen many elite leaders finishing their careers without winning a major trophy but that doesn’t mean we can call their stint a failure. © Twitter IPL Winning a trophy is important, but it is not everything. The way Kohli led RCB all these years, he can be mighty proud that he was able to create an atmosphere where players performed to their potential and fought till the very end. As far as winning trophies is concerned, Kohli has taken a step back and everybody knows what happens when a lion takes a couple of strides back. View the full article
  10. One of the most iconic superheroes in the DC universe is now officially a member of the LGBTQ+ community. Present-day Superman, Jon Kent, will be seen embracing his bisexuality in Superman: Son of Kal-EL #5. © DC Comics If you haven’t kept up with recent developments in the DC Universe, then let us update you. The Superman we grew up with, Kal-el urf Clark Kent had passed on the famous mantle to his son during the Future State events. With the OG blue-caped crusader out of the picture, the Superman: Son Of Kal-El run focuses on the young Jonathan Samuel Kent. In an interview with IGN, writer Tom Taylor revealed, "I think Clark said it best when he left Earth in Jon’s hands. Clark was the Superman of tomorrow. Jon is the Superman for the days after." © DC Comics Jon is exactly how you’d expect Clark Kent and Lois Lane’s offspring to be. Still only 17-years old, the current ‘Man of Steel’ bears a teenage resemblance to his father but possesses the firebrand grit that his journalist mother stood for. The new Superman understands that the world he has inherited is different from the one Clark Kent guarded. While Kal-El as Superman had his rogues gallery of villains to battle, Jon takes on more serious and realistic threats to our world in 2021. © DC Comics Taylor says, "The question for Jon (and for our creative team) is, what should a new Superman fight for today? Can a seventeen-year-old Superman battle giant robots while ignoring the climate crisis? Of course not. Can someone with super sight and super hearing ignore injustices beyond his borders? Can he ignore the plight of asylum seekers?" © Tom Taylor The decision to unveil Superman as bisexual wasn’t done lightly either. In fact, it has been a long time in the making according to Taylor, "Over the years in this industry, it probably won’t surprise you to hear I’ve had queer characters and storylines rejected. I felt like I was letting down people I loved every time this happened" Thankfully, times are different now. Diversity of identity is accepted and appreciated, and Taylor believes that time was ripe for a major comic book superhero to represent the LGBTQ+ community, "We are in a very different and much more welcome place today than we were ten, or even five years ago. When I was asked if I wanted to write a new Superman with a new #1 for the DC Universe, I knew replacing Clark with another straight white savior could be a real opportunity missed. I’ve always said everyone needs heroes and everyone deserves to see themselves in their heroes. Today, Superman, the strongest superhero on the planet, is coming out." Just like his father before him, Jon Kent has fallen for a reporter Learn more about the story to come in SUPERMAN: SON OF KAL-EL #5: https://t.co/bUQAsos68o #DCPride pic.twitter.com/wfQPc3CEVD — Superman (@DCSuperman) October 11, 2021 Jon’s love interest is Jay Nakamura, a hacktivist from the future, and a nifty journalist as well. He is a Gammoran refugee who Superman rescues from a school shooter. According to BBC’s reports, Jon and Jay get together after the 'Man Of Steel' faces serious physical and mental burnout from trying to rescue everyone that he can. Jay Nakamura made his first appearance in the series’ second issue, handing Kent back a blonde wig after the superhero fails to establish a secret identity to attend school like a normal kid. pic.twitter.com/J6vXCeti9n — The Wednesday Pull List! (@WednesdayPull) October 11, 2021 Jay Nakamura isn’t expected to be just another damsel in distress though. He comes with his own superpowers, as per Taylor, “What was most important was making Jay Nakamura formidable in his own right. Finding the balance in their relationship so they could be equals rather than having Jay be too reliant on Jon. This is why Jay’s own powers are revealed in issue #4, and we learn he can’t be harmed. That means, of everyone in Jon’s life, Jay is the only person Jon doesn’t need to protect. It means their relationship is an equal one built on mutual support." "Absolutely everything that a Superman comic should be, even if the Superman at the center of it isn't Clark Kent/Kal-El."@ComicBook rates Superman: Son of Kal-El #3 (out now!) a 5 out of 5: https://t.co/0T8SBTXJ7U pic.twitter.com/o5Q0ord4pv — DC Nation (@thedcnation) September 29, 2021 Artist John Timms is hopeful for Jon Kent’s future as Superman, "It is a pretty big deal doing it with Jon Kent as Superman. As we have seen Jon grow up in front of our eyes, it will be interesting to see him not only trying to find himself as a person but a global superhero in the complex atmosphere of modern life. On the other hand, I hope this kind of thing will not be seen as a big deal in the future. You could visualize how it could pan in the future when the most powerful man in the world is part of the LGBT community. So many things are on the horizon and beyond." Difficult times demand a new breed of heroes, and Jonathan Samuel Kent is a Superman who could be just that. The new Man of Steel may even overshadow the legacy of his famous father.

  11. Virat Kohli is perhaps going through the toughest phase in his career. If his struggles on the field were not enough, the Indian talisman has to also deal with off-field drama, especially in the last few days. It’s not hard to understand that through constant media leaks, there is a sincere attempt to tarnish his image as a leader and present him as someone who is not good enough to lead India to a major ICC title and they have, somewhat, succeeded in their attempt. A couple of days back, Kohli shocked the whole world by announcing that the 2021 T20 World Cup will be his last assignment as a skipper in the shortest format. © Reuters It’s hard to believe that the constant speculations about his limited-overs captaincy over the last few days didn’t play on his mind at all while he was making such a huge decision. It’s hard to believe that the reports claiming he captaincy was under threat if he didn’t deliver the ICC trophy this time around didn’t play any role in his resignation. Kohli was wrong in thinking that offering his resignation will bring this tussle to an end because the rumour mill is in overdrive even after he has stepped down and it’s not a good thing for Indian cricket. But the question is, who is to blame for all this mess that is currently going on in Indian cricket? Who else but BCCI! © Reuters You know what the worst part is? It’s all happening when we have former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly holding the most significant administrative position in Indian cricket. As the BCCI president, we would have loved to see him shutting down all rumours and telling Kohli that he had nothing to worry about. © Reuters Being the BCCI chief, it was Ganguly’s responsibility to address the issue but he has failed to do that. It has come to the level that now his silence is also maligning his legacy as an administrator, with people now asking questions about him. It has become a huge talking point on social media as well and fans are not loving the manner in which the BCCI is treating one of its most valuable assets, not only on the field but off it as well. People are fed up of reading reports showing Kohli in the bad light and making him a scapegoat for everything that’s going wrong in Indian cricket at present. I don't think any other cricket board would have allowed such trash and rumours to be written about their best batsman, and their best test captain who's given such great results. The least that board can do at the moment is come out in defence of Kohli. — Gurkirat Singh Gill (@gurkiratsgill) September 18, 2021GREATEST CRICKET CAPTAIN OF ALL TIME ILL TREATED by BCCI , GANGULY , JAY SHAH @SGanguly99 @bcci @JayShah @BoriaMajumdar #INDIAsPrideViratKOHLI pic.twitter.com/ybQSvuu3w1 — . (@GoatHesson) September 18, 2021The amount of rumours/toxic news since the announcement has been mind boggling and BCCI’s silence is awful. Kohli may/may not take some harsh decisions or rather should take some decisions, the greatest cricketer right now doesn’t deserve this. — Mridu ⚯͛ (@mj_aIways) September 18, 2021Eh.... things change from being a player to being the chairman of the biggest and richest cricket board in the world - so, it's futile to expect that people will be the same when they have a great power -they don't — Evil Knevil (@DSdoc97) September 18, 2021Being the most adversely affected,there is none better who knows hw the transition wld wrk setting aside your main man!! Captaincy didn't end on a high,atleast try to leave the presidency wthout a blackmark!! Dont make us yet another SA or SL !!@SGanguly99#IndiasPrideViratKohli — S@tti C !! (@Pokiri_Tweetz) September 18, 2021Not about Kohli alone. Private greviances and misunderstandings are part of the game. Can't allow media circus of it to malign an individual. Tomorrow it could be Rohit,Rahane or Rahul. It harms the team, it affects the decision making process, breeds insecurity and selfishness. — Srinivas R (@srini_r_twit) September 18, 2021 When Ganguly took charge of the richest cricket board in the world, most Indian cricket aficionados thought he would bring in more transparency into the administration but we have got nothing but disappointment so far. Never before had we seen a former player of Ganguly’s stature rule the show, sitting on the BCCI president’s throne. The common assumption was that having played cricket at the highest level himself he would understand things better than most of his predecessors but sadly, nothing of sort has happened. © Reuters Captaining the Indian cricket team is one of the most difficult jobs in the country as expectations are sky-high all the time, and to succeed it’s important that the whole machinery, from the administration to the backroom staff to the dressing everyone is standing behind the skipper, lending him their support but looks like Kohli has been left alone to fight this battle all by himself. Kohli is always blamed for stealing the credit for Team India’s victories, which we totally understand because it’s a team sport and each and every player works equally hard to win the match for the country and they all deserve equal praise. By this very same logic, how fair is it to blame Kohli every time India finishes on the wrong side of the result? Why do we blame only him for India’s failure to win ICC titles in the last few years? By approving of Kohli’s removal from T20 captaincy, Ganguly, in a way, has approved of the common perception that his captaincy was the reason why India couldn’t win any ICC titles in the last few years. © Reuters Kohli is a champion player. He might be going through a tough phase but he definitely knows how to bounce back and prove his critics wrong and we have no doubt he will do that. As for Ganguly, all cricket fans loved his aggression on the field. The way he supported his players through thick and thin as the leader of the side was simply outstanding. It would have been nice to see him get behind Kohli the same way. View the full article
  12. More than exclusions and inclusions, the decision to rope in former skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni as Team India’s mentor for the T20 World Cup was the biggest surprise for the fans and many experts believe it could be BCCI’s “masterstroke”. The general consensus is that Team India could benefit immensely from Dhoni’s experience both as a batsman and a leader and his valuable insights could help Virat Kohli and his men navigate through tough situations and come out on top. The Reunion we all have been waiting for @msdhoni returns to mentor #TeamIndia for the #T20WorldCup How excited are you to see him back? pic.twitter.com/znPWBLeYNo — BCCI (@BCCI) September 8, 2021 During his tenure as Team India captain, the Ranchi-born cricketer won every ICC title that was there to be won. In fact, he is the only captain in the world to win all of ICC’s limited-overs trophies -- T20 World Cup, ODI World Cup and Champions Trophy. However, since then, India have failed to add any more silverware to their kitty, despite dominating in the league stage of the tournament. 23rd June 2013, ICC Champions Trophy final@msdhoni becomes the first captain in history to complete a hat-trick of ICC trophies: 2007 @t20worldcup 2011 @cricketworldcup 2013 Champions Trophy pic.twitter.com/0EdC96t1Dl — ICC (@ICC) June 23, 2021 Even the batting great Sunil Gavaskar feels that Dhoni's presence in the dressing room would boost the confidence of the Indian players to a whole new level and this move could benefit India a great deal if things work out well between Dhoni and head coach Ravi Shastri. At the same time, the ‘Little Master’ also said that the move could backfire if Dhoni and Shastri are not on the same wavelength over issues like tactics and team selection. © Reuters Dhoni and Kohli share great camaraderie and they both have great mutual respect for each other, but the 72-year-old legend didn’t rule out a possibility of a clash between Shastri and the CSK skipper that could possibly spoil the whole atmosphere in the team. Gavaskar said that he was in a similar position back in 2004 when he was appointed as team consultant and it made the then head coach John Wright insecure about his position in the team. “If I tell you about my own experience, I was roped in as a consultant back in 2004. The role was similar to what we today know as mentor. So, at the time (head coach) John Wright was a bit nervous, he probably thought I was going to take his place. But Ravi Shastri knows that MS Dhoni has very little interest in coaching. Ravi Shastri and MS Dhoni, if the partnership goes well, India will benefit a great deal from it,” Gavaskar told Sports Tak. “But if there are disagreements over tactics and team selection, then there might be a bit of an effect on the team. But MS Dhoni's appointment itself will be a big boost for Team India. He has so much experience, he knows everything. There was no bigger, destructive player than MS Dhoni when he was active in international cricket. © Reuters “MS Dhoni's appointment is good news for India but I am just praying there is no clash. But if Ravi Shastri and MS Dhoni can get on the same wavelength, then it's big news for India,” he added. On one hand, the whole country is delighted with the fact that Dhoni is back with the Indian team once again and his experience would make the side even more firm favourites to win an ICC trophy that has eluded them since 2013 and on the other hand, we have Gavaskar speculating about a potential clash. Different personalities. Both champions and mighty effective - @imVkohli @msdhoni #CWC2019 pic.twitter.com/cyBCM39wtT — Ravi Shastri (@RaviShastriOfc) June 28, 2019 From skipper Virat Kohli to head coach Ravi Shastri to vice-captain Rohit Sharma, the BCCI consulted every senior member and made the announcement only after all of them gave their green signal. Just because his appointment made the then head coach insecure about his job, assuming that the same thing would happen to Dhoni is completely absurd. Gavaskar’s statement that there could be a potential clash of egos between two alpha males was completely unwarranted and he should’ve thought twice before giving such remarks, more so because he is such a widely respected name in world cricket.

  13. Losing the World Test Championship final to New Zealand continues to bring along some harsh criticism for the Indian cricket team from all over the world with the captain, Virat Kohli at the very centre of it all. Former Pakistan captain Salman Butt has now weighed in on the matter and some a step further in questioning Kohli’s legacy as a captain, stating the importance of winning world titles and other multinational tournaments to truly become immortal in the world of any sport. View this post on Instagram “India were on top for five years but sadly couldn’t win the biggest match of all, so people are bound to raise questions. You can be a very good captain, but if you don’t win any title, masses won’t remember you,” Butt said in an interaction on YouTube. “Maybe you are a good captain and have good plans, but your bowler may not be able to execute it. So luck has to be on your side as well. People only remember those who win tournaments,” he added. View this post on Instagram “Sometimes, you may not be a great captain, but your team may be very good, and you may end up winning a major title. So that does not define a captain, but for the world, of course, a good captain is one who has won big events,” he said. “Virat Kohli has not won any ICC title; neither has he won the IPL. He is a top-class cricketer, has excellent body language and is aggressive. His energy level is at a different level, and it is evident that he wants to give his best every time he steps out in the middle. But captains should be subtle and not fiery. During the WTC final, we kept hearing that it is a battle between fire (Virat Kohli) and ice (Kane Williamson). Most top-class captains who have won titles were cool or gesture-less at crunch moments. Virat Kohli is a man full of gestures. Had he won, he would have been praised no end,” Butt went on to say. View this post on Instagram Across all formats of the game, Kohli has captained the Indian side in 201 matches out of which he has won 128, lost 56 while 17 of them ended in a draw, tie or without a result. As far as red-ball cricket in concerned, Kohli is already the most successful Indian skipper with 36 wins. View the full article
