Hey People, Leave MS Dhoni Alone

t’s been a week of ups and downs in Indian cricket. While a Delhi boy “gedi-ied” his way onto the pitch in the middle of a Ranji Trophy match, New Zealand levelled the T20 series with an emphatic victory on a pitch as flat as Ranveer Singh’s abdomen. Nobody has had a more see-sawing week than Mahendra Singh Dhoni who lapped up applause when Nehra ji’s career breathed its last but was the subject of brickbats after he played an uncharacteristic innings in the second game, looking willfully distraught while he was at it.
