#IPL 2012: #MSDhoni admits #CSK had a 'rusty' start to their title defence-- Chennai Super Kings suffered a eight-wicket defeat to Mumbai Indians in the tournament opener and skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni admitted it was a "rusty" start to their title defence in IPL V at Chennai on Wednesday. Chasing 112 to win, Mumbai Indians scored 115-2 with 19 balls to spare and Dhoni said another 30-odd runs could have made a difference on this pitch at the MA Chidambaram Stadium.
#Sachin Tendulkar is "the world's best athlete", says Time Magazine ----Mumbai: May 11, 2012 Sachin Tendulkar’s super-human feats have earned him the title of “The God of Cricket” from his fans around the world. Time magazine’s latest issue – which is scheduled to go on the stands on May 11, 2012 - features him on the cover with the same title. This is the second time he would feature on Time’s cover – the first time being in the year 1999.
#MSDhoni and Co. haven't learnt from past over-rate offences :A clinical performance with the bat in their first One-Day International (ODI) after a long lay-off may have eased concerns of rustiness, but it wasn’t an entirely happy affair for India at Hambantota. Mahendra Singh Dhoni and his men were docked a percentage of their match-fees for their failure to maintain a good over.
"Yes, I cried. No one really has the footage of that. It's very difficult to control an emotion like that. I was controlling and quickly I wanted to go up to the dressing room and all of a sudden I saw two of my team mates crying and running on to me. It became uncontrollable then." - #MSDhoni +1 if you too had TEARS OF JOY in your eyes after we won the #Wt20 on 2nd April, 2011..
#eChunav says: Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni today became the fourth fastest batsman to complete 8,000 runs in one-day cricket during the fifth and final ODI against New Zealand here. The three men ahead of him in the list are illustrious compatriots Sachin Tendulkar and Sourav Ganguly and West Indian legend Lara, all of whom batted in the top three. Congratulations Mr M.S.Dhoni
