least reveals just the incessant time he’s spent on the cricket field (Source: PTI) Related News A dayafter he shocked the world by announcing his retirement from Tests MS Dhoni welcomed 2015 the first year in a decade where he will not have to worry about packing in the whites on his travels in Sydney You could pick few places as wondrous as Australia’s Emerald City to bring in the New Year And you don’t really even have to be around the Port Jackson the Harbour Bridge or the Opera House to realize that Probably even Dhoni would agree He’s been here before This is the third time he’s found himself in this part of the world at this time of the year It was also the sixth time in nine years that he was witnessing a New Year countdown away from home — thrice in South Africa and thrice in Australia for the record It was the burden of playing all three formats of cricket that had pushed him to give up on Tests or so he had told his teammates and the board officials A look at the amount of cricket the 33-year-old has played in the last three or so years at least reveals just the incessant time he’s spent on the cricket field or at a cricket ground anyway But there has been more to deal with That burden has grown new tentacles of late The changing climes of a dressing room that once answered only to his voice has meant that there was a lot riding on his decision except just the aches and pains that he had picked up from pushing himself to the edge His position of authority that seemed so impregnable had become increasingly untenable of late both because of the team’s disastrous results away from home as well as voices within his own camp demanding for a wind of change a new outlook a dispensing of the Dhoni ideology of playing for safety first when overseas Having to deal with broken fingers and torn hamstrings might be tough work but of late he’s also had to overcome the pressure of being the Chennai Super Kings captain a franchise team owned by the cricket’s most influential official N Srinivasan and at the centre of the IPL corruption case Dhoni’s name was repeatedly getting dragged during court hearing and probe reports All this perhaps was really mentally draining Breaking point First the numbers to give an idea about his cricketing workload Since he led India to glory in the ICC World Cup Dhoni has played 36 Tests 64 ODIs 24 international T20s and 112 T20s which include IPL and CLT20 matches Assuming all those Tests lasted the distance it means Dhoni has spent 380 days playing cricket out of the 1368 that have passed since that memorable day at the Wankhede Stadium In no mean terms that’s a hell lot of cricket for anyone In comparison Michael Clarke has spent 244 days while the number for AB de Villiers is 327 Not to forget that Dhoni has captained his teams on each and every one of those days unlike the other two It’s a surprise he even lasted this long The burden should have taken a toll a long time ago During that three-year period Dhoni missed only one Test due to injury the first match of this ongoing series at Adelaide And when he turned up for the pre-match press conference at the Gabba he strangely sounded relieved to have sustained an injury “Because the injury was in the right hand when you bat it got worse and I needed 20-25 days together Those 20-25 days were very good for me It is very important to switch on and off in cricket We play all year round So it has been very good break for me” he said with a satisfied smile on his face But it wasn’t surprising to see him like that For Dhoni injuries have been blessings And they’ve not always come in disguises either For they’ve given him time to recuperate more in terms of dealing with his mental fatigue than anything else Along the way he’s missed quite a few ODIs — 31 for the record After one of those breaks he had spoken about how he’d spent the spare time catching up on TV shows No free time With Dhoni there’s also all the off-field attention that he has to deal with Then there are his innumerable commitments off the field both in terms of promoting brands and other activities Not to forget his lengthy media conferences about which a lot has been written about already In 2011 Dhoni opted out of the ODI series in the Caribbean soon after the World Cup glory And when he showed up in Kingston prior to the first Test he had admitted to the burdens of appearing non-stop in all three formats and how taxing it had become “Personally the break has helped me All that small-small injuries vanish suddenly You will have plenty of energy and you are not running on reserve battery” he had said But never before has he had to battle to keep the status quo in tact And he had realised that this wasn’t an issue that was vanishing any time soon regardless of how many breaks he took from the game And after having plugged away in whites and colours despite the ‘E’ blinking rapidly on his battery meter it was probably time that Dhoni himself had to pull the plug at least one of them for now For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Mihir Vasavda | New Delhi | Updated: December 28 2015 11:05 am Two of India’s biggest achievements in recent times — the Asian Games gold in 2014 and the bronze at the HWL earlier this month—came courtesy Sreejesh Related News In his brief summation of India’s performance at the World League Finals earlier this month Holland coach Max Caldas said the team’s current strength could also potentially be its Achilles heels Caldas was talking moments after his team’s defeat to India in the bronze medal match and even though his opinions at times seem too frank they are generally fair and hard to argue with The Argentine was talking about India’s goalkeeper PR Sreejesh Caldas spoke about an issue most in the Indian set-up chose to ignore Sreejesh he said was the key reason India have looked such a settled unit of late Without him Caldas had doubts if India would be as strong as they seem to be It’s a huge shift for a team that was perceived as a one-man army not too long ago; that ‘one-man’ being skipper Sardar Singh But India’s two biggest achievements – the Asian Games gold in 2014 followed by bronze at HWL earlier this month – in the last decade have come courtesy Sreejesh The 27-year-old underplays his role saying the rotation within the squad is an important reason why India has started to do well “We are maintaining a 25-member squad for Rio Games so that has kept a healthy competition within the team If there are any injuries we have immediate replacements The depth in the core group has been an important reason why we are doing well” Sreejesh said It’s ironical that Sreejesh mentioned depth in the playing group as the reason for India’s success For there has been a dearth of back-ups in his position Indian hockey may have enjoyed two of its most successful years in recent history It is an indication that the team is heading in the right direction but the other way of looking at those two achievements would be the team’s excessive reliance on Sreejesh during crunch situations to deliver goods It was evident against Belgium in the semifinals of the Hockey World League how much the other players depend on him when Oltmans did not mind playing a half-fit Sreejesh in the goal ahead of second-choice keeper Harjot Singh Harjot has played just a dozen games since making his debut in 2013 and is yet to play a big-ticket match And while most other teams used the World League as a platform to test their bench strength India were still trying to identify their first-choice playing XI Sreejesh says the pressure of delivering results too is a factor that stops them from experimenting too much “One of the reasons is that the coaches do not want to risk failure Even one defeat draws a lot of criticism and he is then targeted by the media So it becomes difficult for them to experiment much” Sreejesh had said in Raipur earlier this month “So while picking a team the coach has to think about a lot of factors He has his plans and we all work accordingly” This year Harjot has played a couple of test matches in New Zealand and featured in the friendly series against Australia earlier this month Even though that may not seem enough in terms of gaining experience Sreejesh didn’t see it as a big issue Giving Harjot chances “We are giving him chances wherever we can We are planning that he gets equal opportunities so in case if something happens he is ready to step in” he said “Aakash (third-choice keeper) and Harjot have improved a lot and that was seen during the camp with (goalkeeping coach) Dave Staniforth” Going into an Olympic year Sreejesh feels every player will need some fine tuning especially the goalkeepers Despite being the team’s best player once again this year he knows he is always just one tiny mistake away from being castigated And he also knows that much of his success will depend on how well the defence line in front of him operates “Normally a goalkeeper has to be a perfect man All my mistakes are visible so I have to keep my concentration all the time But our defence is well settled so that makes my task easier There is a lot of trust among us” he said With the Olympics a little more than six months away Sreejesh said the focus of the team was to be more consistent “We can surely target a top-six finish which will be a good improvement from our previous performance The biggest advantage of the World League was that it gave us an idea as to where we stand at the world level There is a lot of scope for improvement but as we enter the home stretch for the Olympic preparations we know the biggest challenge for us is to remain consistent with our performances” he said For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Related NewsBy: Reuters | London | Updated: February 1 2016 7:16 pm John Terry has made

The conventional argument behind keeping such operations plausibly deniable in the past has been that such deniability robs the other side of the initiative to draw international attention to a violation of its territory, while such strikes may have immediate tactical effects – such as neutralizing imminent cross-over of Pakistan-backed terrorists to Indian territory – these strikes may be of limited value in forcing a fundamental rethink among Pakistan’s military elite regarding the use of proxies to prosecute its Kashmir policies. 2016 7:32 pm The NSC has so far recorded 472 significant aftershocks since the devastating quake on April 25, Among the options under consideration are banning US companies from doing business with Cuban enterprises tied to the military – which controls a large part of the communist-ruled island’s economy – and tightening rules on Americans travelling there.
