News update

On the platform of his blitz that brought him 207 off 106 the other day at the Eden Gardens, Mahendra Singh Dhoni says he is busy recalibrating his game, with the goal of playing through the middle overs. And it is not just batting he is focussing on -- apparently, he has asked ex-stumper Nayan Mongia for tips on glove work as well.
Interesting bit is, it is the younger guys who are talking of redrafting their game, of adding to their skill sets, etc -- Pathan, who went to England promising to recover missing weapons from his arsenal; Zaheer, who is in Chennai in search of fitness and a finer edge on his ability; Dhoni, who says he is rethinking his game... Wonder what the older guys are doing, meanwhile.


  • Ganguly : Trying to spend sometime in the middle, although last I heard he was out for a duck and is turning his arm over instead.

    Tendulkar : R & R

    I am surprised not to hear much about Kaif and Yuvraj. One constant 'excuse' we hear is they never get enough overs to bat, and when the top order collapses, these guys are too overwhelmed by the occasion [Yuvraj is more guilty about this than Kaif].

    Laxman, Kumble seems MIA.

  • Too many assumptions. Why dont ya all shut up and give our cricketers a break. Remember we (fans) dont own them. They have got a very short professional career and they need to make the most of it. I dont care what Dravid/Shewag/Laxman etc are doing in their off time, as long as they come ready for the next tour.
