Mahi Mahi

I had cutlets made of Mahi Mahi for dinner. But this post isn't about that. It is about this guy whom his family members fondly address as Mahi - yeah, this is about the bloke of whom they say "Dhoni uska naam hai - Dhona uska kaam hai" (which roughly translates to "Dhoni is his name.. taking 'em all to the cleaners is his game"). This is about the guy with King Aragon-like locks, with King Viv Richards' like swagger, with a gladiator-like built, with Nomar Garciaparra like mannerisms (the way he straps and unstraps his gloves before facing each ball is something which the Red Sox ace also does) and a million dollar smile.

His unbeaten 183 came off just 77 scoring shots. Except for that one over in which Tendulkar got out, Dhoni spent the entire duration of the game on the ground and in the process broke a few records. His was the highest ever score made by a wicket-keeper batsman in limited overs cricket and he would cherish this a lot because the previous holder of that record is easily the greatest of all the wicket-keeper batsmen that have ever played this game. With this one innings his career average has jumped up to an impressive 49.73 in 22 matches (with a strike rate of 108.9) and he has made a very strong case for himself to be included in the test squad. Dinesh Karthick hasn't done badly, but at the moment Dhoni seems to be playing at a completely different level altogether. I would just love to know (hope it would become a reality someday) how much Dhoni and Sehwag can plunder if they can bat together for the entire fifty overs - 200 apiece is my guess?

Before I sign off, I would like to wish the other Mahi who ended up on the losing side, a very happy married life. Mahela will not be playing in the next game as he is getting married the same day. Luv-3 down in the series is not exactly the position he would have wanted his team to be in at this stage - hope his wedding would bring him better luck when he returns for the fifth game.

Though Yuvaraj is not consistent, he is as much a match winner as Dhoni.

I like these guys Sehwag, Dhoni, Yuvaraj, they balst the opponent out of the match and win single-handedly
