There seems to be no end to Indian`s team`s woes as skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni was docked 60 percent of his match fees while his teammates were handed a 30 percent fine for being guilty of maintaining a slow over-rate during the fifth cricket Test against England at the Oval.
New Zealand batting great Martin Crowe has slammed the "illogical" captaincy of Mahendra Singh Dhoni in the ongoing Test series in England and feels India would be better off without his leadership in the longest format.
It would be a do-or-die situation for Team India in the fifth and final Test at The Oval, as the tourists are 2-1 down in the series. Everyone expects Indian players to work harder at nets and attend all the practice sessions before The Oval Test, scheduled to start from Friday.
Had India, who`ve now won just one of their last 18 Tests on foreign soil, been offered the chance to arrive at The Oval 2-1 down with one to play in this five-match series before their tour started, they might have taken up the offer.
