Melbourne: Ever since he was named captain of the Indian team, MS Dhoni has been viewed as the man with the golden touch, but if recent Test matches are anything to go by, then the Indian captain is not only struggling with the bat but with his strategies too. Therefore, Captain Cool is facing a lot of heat from cricket experts.
Like any other batsman, Michael Hussey was too anxious to score his first run on Day 3 of the first Test, but his job was made easy by Dhoni. A backward point and a deep backward square leg meant Hussey was allowed to take an easy single. But he is a middle-order batsman.
Of late, India have become generous to the tailenders as well. And that has cricket experts criticising the team and the captain. Former Australian cricketer Tom Moody said: "I can't understand how they can give easy singles to number 10 and 11."
