      yes i agree arunii.sometimes he is bit too causes at the start of his innings and when he does that,he mostly fails because that's not his true nature.

      if he can improve that along with overseas average he can be even better.

      dhoni is a great captain of indian cricket team. I respect him more after wining 2011 cricket world cup.He is a genius but sometimes he irritates with his batting when he play slow at critical time.
