Sehwag vs Dhoni – Who is a better captain…?
After a superb and emphatic win by The Indian Team against The Lankans in the Third ODI b y Sehwag’s me n-One thing struck in my mind, Why not compare Dhoni’s captaincy and Sehwag’s.
He brought bowlers in regular interval.He bowled himself but if Dhoni was there he doesn’t bowls Sehwag a lot as he has hopes on Raina and Yuvraj.
Sehwag in this ODI lead the team himself in the bowling too as he struck the major break through to turn the match. The match which Lanka aimed above was restricted under because of Sangakkara’s wicket he struck.
You cannot tell that Sehwag is better than Dhoni from one match. I am just comparing the bowling game-plan between Dhoni and Sehwag. I don’t know but this was the best bowling performance in the series. This point struck me to write this article.
I don’t know what but I didn’t expect this strategy from Mr.Cool in this series. This was why Lanka scored a lot in both ODIs. Meanwhile, Sehwag bowled in seven bowlers including him.
Another important difference is the way both approached batting after given the Captaincy.
- We cannot forget the and scored by Dhoni with high strike rate. But after being given the Captaincy Dhoni slowed down his strike rate. Before his strike rate was more than . But after given the responsibility he slowed down with strike rate around 80–90.
- Meanwhile, Sehwag was in the same demolishing form. Even after given a leadership he led the team as usual.
- I have seen The Master Blaster after given the Leadership in 1990s he couldn’t concentrate on his batting. But Sehwag is unbelievable. He is excellent.
Sehwag’s approach to lead his team was great. His captaincy is excellent(i don’t say he is better than Dhoni as it is not the best time for it).His strategy was different. His game plan was cool.
LETS HOPE SEHWAG DOES WELL IN THE 4th ODI.
Very important, We could get to see Sehwag’s captaincy in Dhoni’s absence. It would have been very very difficult if Sehwag was not there. Think and see even Yuvraj is also not there. It would have been difficult for Gambhir and Harbhajan to lead because they just have no experience.
So The Indian board or the Money eaters as I call it should give opportunity for the young guys of the team to give a chance to Lead.
They should arrange a series in Bangladesh or Zimbabwe where all young guys should be in the squad and rest all others.
Maybe for Bangladesh tri series Indian team should be full of young fellows.
