Oh Captain!

I think it is really big of MS Dhoni to offer to move aside if someone better can replace him. Not too many would do that, don’t you think?

Oh, for heaven’s sake, can’t you read between the lines? All this renunciation is so that the faithful can plead with him not to go.

That’s very cynical of you. Look at all our so-called seniors in the cricket team. They have bombed time and time again but are not ready to walk like Dhoni. Take the man at his word.

Look, he should not be sitting around yapping about the fact that he will go if he can be replaced by someone better, he should have gone already given how disgraceful our performance has been.

But he does say that he is still on his way, he has not reached any place. What modesty in one so young.

Yes, he has much to be modest about. You will find that miraculously, no one better will be found and Dhoni will be raking in the endorsements, but not the runs.

Do Say: Not hair today, gone tomorrow.

Don’t Say: Don’t pad up just yet Virender Sehwag.
