Two captaincy tactics

Two captaincy theory would have been a hit in T-20 cricket but in Test Cricket and one day cricket both the captains failed at the overseas matches. Dhoni suffered a series of defeats in test match cricket and quit the captaincy in the mid-day through Australian tour and the captain cool could not win the World Cup 2015 and lost a one day series in Australia in a disastrous way.  To assert his role as successful captain, he should have the patience of a saint, the nerve of a gambler and the mind of a psychiatrist but Dhoni lack all this qualities when he crosses our borders.  A home win against a depleted Sri Lankan side is not a sign for our supremacy. Despite having so much experience, Dhoni is likely to fail in the top games with his stereotype captaincy.  His batting line up clicked despite the failure of openers and the bowlers made a mark in patches and that is not an ultimate way of playing like a number one side.  The loopholes need to be plugged if we aspire to become T-20 Champion next month.
