    When other talented bowlers are available ad his disposal what is the necessity for the captain to indulge himself in bow and in doing so he has been very magnanimous in conceding runs.Sheer arrogance my misusing his privilege of being the captain.

          both the openers started well but later on went for personal milestones....maybe yuvraj & virat kohli's failure stopped them from going an all out attack....but scoring just 49 runs from overs 31 to 40 sealed the match with players playing for personal glory rather for the team...dhoni is a pale shadow of what he was...earlier he used to score at a strike rate of 170-180 from overs 40-50 but not anymore....

                  I think this defeat was important for India to concentrate more on the game and less of un-important stuff... Good job Sri Lankans
