When Dhoni was batting with Jadeja at the crease today, I was reminded of the Javed Miandad at Auckland 1992 semifinal, but it turned out to be the Miandad of Bangalore in the 1996 quarterfinal.#INDvNZ#CWC19

Dhoni has become the Nehru of Indian cricket.
The guy who got us our second WC is India’s favourite punching bag.
No body is bothered about the dismal performance of the openers because you all are blind haters.
