While the current Champions League will put Indian cricketing issues to the background for some time, there is no doubt that a lot has to be done if Team India has to return to its winning ways.
There are some things that have to be done pronto...
1. Unburden Dhoni: Captain MS Dhoni has been hinting that he has been overburdened for ages now but nobody seems to be listening to him. First the defeats started coming and now his body language as captain has also changed.
He is looking more and more jaded and resigned on the field. A certain amount of stubbornness has also come into his decisions. In one press conference he had said that he needed to quit from at least one form of the game to survive.
For starters, he could step down from the captaincy of the international T20 team and also of the Chennai Superkings with Virat Kohli and Suresh Raina taking over respectively. That might also free up Dhoni to play his natural game in T20s and ease the burden to concentrate on the other forms of the game.
