Spartan 17.05 Crack PORTABLE
The pressure of International cricket, Test cricket in specific and the toughest of them all, playing outside the subcontinent started to crack one of the toughest nuts that Indian cricket has produced. Dhoni, in an interaction with the media during the series Down Under, announced that he might have to quit one form of the cricket if he had to continue playing till the World Cup in 2015. There was ample buzz generated in the media and cricketing circles that Dhoni would soon quit Test cricket and if not soon, it would be the first format to be left out of his plans. It was obvious that this was the format of cricket, he enjoyed the least.
Spartan 17.05 Crack
While he is one of the best finishers of the game in world cricket in the shorter format at the moment, a look at his Test batting numbers and manner of dismissals in the last few years do not offer anything comforting to the Indian supporters. He averages an abysmal 17.05 in 13 Test matches played outside the subcontinent in the last three years prior to the New Zealand series. The series in New Zealand only helps it up marginally to a 19.68. His flashy and sometimes walking cover drives have become something to dread, the keeper and the catching positions behind the wicket getting on their toes, waiting for one that would soon come their way. It is difficult to understand why the man who musters up patience at will to settle down gradually in every innings in limited overs cricket does not derive the same support from his temperament in the five-day format.
