Although Dhoni's captaincy may not be in immediate danger, but the defeat of a series against New Zealand has definitely been & # 39; Captain Cool & # 39; Would raise questions about the ability to reduce their resources when their public was unable to reduce the order to rotate their strike after publicity.
Under Dhoni, India lost 2-3 ODIs against Bangladesh in Bangladesh, Bangladesh 1-4 in Bangladesh, 1-4 in Australia Down Under and South Africa in the three ODI series – Bangladesh. In the last 18 months, the victory of the only ODI series has been against a lower Zimbabwe.
New Zealand's only breakthrough, away from home for four months in two continents, was a 2-0 win against Zimbabwe, after which they scored 1-1 before South Africa beat India by 0-3 in Tests. Drew.
Their ODI campaign started on the sour note in Dharamshala, but some strong performances of batting by captain Ken Williamson and Martin Guptill in Delhi and Ranchi brought India to the guard of the series 2-2.
Since 1988, they have never won against India in four bilateral competitions, it would be a great motivation for Black Caps to reduce this trend and return home with redemption.
After the permission of the weather, Dr. YS Rajasekhara Reddy ends a tantalization at the ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium, where he equals 4-1 records.
His last victory came against the Sri Lanka in the 5-0 whitewash of 5-0 in November 2014, and under-fire Dhoni does not want to lose another series at the end of his career.
World No. 4 India has only three more ODIs against England, which is ahead of the prestigious Champions Trophy in June next year and Dhoni will have the opportunity to boost him against a team which is a notch above.
During the series, over-dependence on Virat Kohli has also become apparent because Indian Test captains were the main performers in both the wins during the first four matches so far.
With the opening pair of Rohit Sharma and Ajinkya Rahane, so far to make a much stronger start, India's batting is centered around their 1 batsman Kohli.
Consider this, then Kohli had to chase in both the victories of the India series, in an innings of 85 not out in the low-scoring Chase in Dharamsala, or his majestic 154 not out, challenged 285 in New Zealand's Mohali.
Chasing a modest score of 261 in the fourth ODI in Ranchi, Rahane returned after making a half-century, while Kohli looked slow on the wicket, but both failed to change their start, and it was an acquaintance for the inexperienced mid-order. The story was there.
Failure or not, Indian opener Sharma has been a permanent member of the line-up with Dhoni, who is not in the mood to give young players the chance and Mandeep Singh is seen warming the bench.
Sharma's last big innings came in Australia, and it's been more than nine months. Their scores read 14, 15, 13 and 11 in the ongoing series, something that is causing more harm to the cause of India than anything else.
It is a high time that the world record holder for the ODI score of 264 was made in the most important match of the series, and in his mother's home city, he would expect to make it special.
This is the place where Dhoni got the stardom immediately with his innings of 123 runs, which took India a huge score of 356/9 with a 58-run win over Pakistan in the first match of the match venue. .
Dhoni special no. 3 came to bat Indian captain & # 39; Dhoni & # 39; But, if promoted to No. 4 in Mohali, where he scored 80 runs from 91 balls, his intentions are correct, if they are not aware.
After his superb half-century, Dhoni disappointed his domestic audience by dismissing James Neesham and scored 11 runs off 31 balls before being clean-bowled and completely missed.
In his succession, he would have sent it for six but Dhoni is struggling to get his old rhythm back.
They & # 39; lose the ability & # 39; to roam freely in the middle. Also has astonishing revelation because Dhoni would particularly like to expect a young player to pursue.
For bowling, India has done quite well, especially the spin trio of Amit Mishra, Ezhar Patel and part-timer Kedar Jadhav have ensured that they have not missed R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja regularly.
On the motion front, India will hope that Jaspreet Bumrah was invented and Dhawal Kulkarni was replaced by him.
Opener Martin Guptill's return to Ranchi with Tom Latham's consistency, whose seven matches have five half-centuries, are joint tests and one-dayers, New Zealand will benefit greatly on the tour.
Captain Williamson has consistently remained at No. 3 but this is his mid-series which has started well, it can happen in Ranchi where he was playing in 300 or last ODI matches.
Left-handed spinner Anton Devich who was included in Ranchi as the third spinner, was looking ordinary as Williamson, could not have thought of bringing back Corey Anderson or Matt Henry.
With the circumstances, the last thing India wants is a wash-out. Despite weakening, cyclones have gone further down the Kyant and in the south, there is a forecast of localized forecasts because both teams will cross their fingers.
This venue has been slated to host its first test in less than a month, when India will play against England from November 17.
As a matter of fact, at about the same time in Vishakhapatnam, the cyclone was destroyed by Hudhud and the last one-day match scheduled between India and the West Indies was canceled on October 14, 2014 without throwing a ball.
It is left to see whether India gives a gift to Diwali or New Zealand returns home with its chiefs.
