Describing himself as a fan of late NTR, It stars Sonakshi Sinha in the female lead role.lifted the trophy to cast away the gloom of a first-round exit in the 50-over World Cup earlier that year,Dhoni flagged off his glory days as Indian captain Unfortunately for Joginder that was where his international run would come to a halt 2 Promoting himself ahead of Yuvraj Singh in the 2011 World Cup final India playing the World Cup final in their own backyard could not have been a more dream-like situation and the hosts were one step away from creating history aside from ending a 28-year-old drought Except their pursuit towards that dream got off to a shaky start after they were reduced to 31/2 while chasing the 275-run target set by Sri Lanka Enter Dhoni who pushed himself up the order ahead of Yuvraj Singh who himself was having quite a good World Cup Dhonistabilised the Indian innings by forming a crucial 109-run stand for the fourth wicket with Gautam Gambhir and went on to score a match-winning 79-ball 91 not out His six over long-on off Nuwan Kulasekara to send billion-plus fans into a state of frenzy accompanied by commentator Ravi Shastri’s magical words "Dhoniiii finishes off in style" will arguably go down as the single greatest moment in the minds of many Indian cricket fans 3 Giving Ishant Sharma the ball in the 18th over in the 2013 Champions Trophy final England had lost early wickets in their chase of the 130-run target in the final that was reduced to 20-overs per side due to rain However the middle-order duo of Eoin Morgan and Ravi Bopara formed a lively partnership that resurrected the tournament hosts With England needing 28 off 18 with six wickets in hand pressure was growing on Dhoni’s shoulders Ishant Sharma Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja had an over left each but ‘Captain Cool’ decided to turn towards the lanky pacer for the crucial 18th over Two magical deliveries from him saw the two set batsmen return to the crease with the momentum now shifting firmly towards India’s favour This indeed was the game-changing over as the remainder of the batting order could not cope up with the pressure from Jadeja and Ashwin who bowled tightly to guide India to a five-run triumph making Dhoni the only captain in the history of the game to win all three major ICC titles 4 Asking Ishant to change bowling tactics at Lord’s 2014 India scripted a famous 95-run victory in the second game of the five-Test series in England in 2014 However it was not an easy ride in the first session of the final day with Joe Root and Moeen Ali forging a steady partnership for the fifth wicket and dominating the first two hours of play Skipper Dhoni asked Ishant to change his bowling tactics by bowling short and going round the wicket The challenge however was to convince Ishant to do so after the the latter initially was hesitant in implementing it Dhoni however ensured that he would stick to the advised length by setting the appropriate field The plan worked in India’s favour as Ishant captured five wickets to trigger a slide that helped the hosts grab the 1-0 series lead 5 Taking off his right glove in the final ball vs Bangladesh in World T20 2016 Mushfiqur Rahim and Mahmudullah needed to stay calm at the crease if they were to help Bangladesh defeat neighbours India in the ICC World T20 2016 clash Dhoni on the other hand had no options left other than Hardik Pandya for the final over Back-to-back boundaries by Rahim saw the diminutive Bangladeshi wicketkeeper-batsman break into premature celebrations They still needed two runs off the last three balls What followed can perhaps easily be counted as one of the greatest brain fades as Bangladesh lost two wickets off the next two deliveries off loose shots Bangladesh needed two runs off the final ball and Dhoni decided to take his right glove off in order to quiken the entire process up of collecting the ball and running the batsman out at the striker’s end That’s exactly what happened with the Indian captain sprinting towards the stumps andbeating Mustafizur Rahman by a few centimetres The image of him disturbing the stumps with Rahman’s bat slightly behind the crease will surely go down as one of the most famous moments in Indian cricket With inputs from Reuters By: Express News Service | Mumbai | Updated: January 13 2016 1:30 am Rahul Gandhi Related News A meeting of the Congress party in Mumbai supposed to chalk out a plan for the Congress vice president’s two day visit to Mumbai later this week went awry after two party legislators representing warring factions and their supporters came to blows The issue on which the two factions clashed was Rahul Gandhi’s itinerary on the first day Rahul Gandhi is scheduled to visit Mumbai in the evening on January 15 and return to Delhi the next evening On Tuesday at a meeting of city party leaders convened by Mumbai Congress chief Sanjay Nirupam to finalise plans for Gandhi’s trip two senior legislators — former Maharashtra minister Naseem Khan and legislator Aslam Shaikh— and their supporters clashed Sources said that a bitter fight ensued after Nirupam said Gandhi would first hold a

and interacting with the media Khan who has publicly spoken out against Nirupam following the controversy over articles on Sonia Gandhi in the party’s Mumbai mouthpiece Congress Darshan objected to the North Mumbai plan saying “it did not make sense to have a meeting at one corner of the city and then another at the other end” Criticising Nirupam’s plan Khan suggested that even the workers meeting be held in the party office itself Shaikh who owes his allegiance to Nirupam stood up to oppose Khan’s suggestion Words were soon exchanged between the two leaders both of whom share the same bench in the Maharashtra legislative assembly But before calm could be restored supporters from both sides showered the choicest abuses at one another Both sides then came to blows Calm was restored

a strong message to the players who pick and choose tournaments when it comes to representing India Rohan Bopanna was axed from the Davis Cup side since he pulled out of the Spain tie feigning injury AITA sources have claimed Bopanna’s opting out of the World Group Play-off tie in September 2016 did not go down well with the All India Tennis Association (AITA) It is widely believed in the AITA circle that Bopanna just made an excuse that he was injured Bopanna known for his superior service skills on the Tour on the final day of the tie September 18 posted a video on Instagram showing him enjoying a dance with his friends in a bar in Bangalore on Monday night “We have not closed our eyes If a player does not have that special feeling to play for the country he does not deserve to be in the team It was a crucial tie and we expect players to put up their hands and get ready for the challenge” an AITA insider privy to the matter told PTI The selection committee Chairman SP Misra insisted that Bopanna’s pull out was not discussed at the meeting to pick team for New Zealand but said they had instructions to choose three singles players and a doubles specialist Bopanna (28) is higher-ranked than Leander Paes (59) but the veteran player was preferred over the former However AITA Secretary General Hironmoy Chatterjee did drop a hint that Bopanna’s giving a miss to the Spain tie was an issue “All ex Davis Cup players are selectors They discussed all matters including the past results against New Zealand and Rohan opting out of the Spain tie After detailed discussion they have selected the team I feel all concerned should honour and accept their decision” Chatterjee told PTI without elaborating much Bopanna defended himself saying he indeed was injured and was not fit to play a five-setter if required “I am surprised somebody will think like that Right after my mixed doubles at the US Open when I went to the physios there they said some fluids were there and my knee was swollen so I had to take 10-day off I gave an advance notice that I need to take 10-day off” he said Asked about the video of him dancing that he had posted Bopanna said it did not mean he was fit to play a competitive match “For me to do one sprint of 100 metres yes I can do it but if I have to constantly serve and volley for five sets it’s not possible I never said I could not run I could not walk I could not jump I was not 100 per cent fit As a tennis player that is where I am looking at it Who knows if they call me to play singles like they did in Chandigarh So I am looking at it as overall picture They need to understand the player” explained Bopanna Bopanna further questioned AITA’s selection criteria “We need to check what are the norms to pick teams and not just for the Davis Cup If there is system I don’t think Indian tennis will have any issue We need to ask the Federation what the norms are “I am not feigning injury I was very clear that I was injured Even last time to play against New Zealand I took two 12-hour flights That’s my first priority to play for India I did not go home They are qualified physios and when they tell you something you need to respect them” Asked if playing with Leander Paes with whom he was forced to play at the Rio Olympics was an issue and if that influenced his decision in any way Bopanna said “It was not at all a factor “You are first one saying something like that I feel sad that some people think so low I have been the highest-ranked tennis player if they think I am the first choice to play I am ready to go ahead and play but those things don’t really make a difference The physios asked me to rest and I respect that” Misra said Bopanna can always come back since Leander won’t be there for long “Rohan is a great player and ranking was not the sole criteria to select the players If that was the case Yuki (Bhambri) would not have been there Going by the current form it was an unanimous decision to have Leander and Saketh (Myneni) “There were directions from the Executive Committee to have three singles players There were only two factors: that how well Leander and Saketh played against the Olympic gold medallist during the Spain tie and that Saketh and Rohan had not done well against New Zealand It does not bar Rohan from coming back to the side He can comeback in future Leander won’t be around for long” Misra said However Bopanna made it clear that he did not like the fact that he was dropped for the tie against New Zealand “At the end of the day we have to put best team forward instead of (looking at) who has so many years left That’s not the aspect they are looking at Spain had so many players ranked higher than all of us but they sent their best team out there to play a Play-off “These are the examples you take from world class athletes and teams who are winning titles We can’t look at small and petty issues If am picked or not the whole team has to come together and that’s what is going to make a difference” concluded Bopanna For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top News
