Lata Bai, Raj Singh Dhungu has long gone. Please stick to your singing and music and leave the cricket opinion for the experts. Kind regards.

Dhojiji has achieved so much height in Indian criket that we should left such decisions to him only. We all have enough faith in him that instead his personal benefit he will take decision in the interest of the country and cricket as well

Dhoni is very good no doubt about it and books are written about his ability but this is cricket and teams always build with youngsters. This is not new topic but everyone is waiting from Dhoni to play his last CWC and let young blood to come and have experience internationally bcoz from now we need to start preparing for next world cup.

We appreciate Dhoni who serve for almost 2 decades from the front and won matches for India single handedly and we also hope he will support new players with his experience and very much helpful in build a strong Indian team.
Thank you Dhoni.
