Dhoni missed

Kumble's bowling is not kind to wicketkeepers and Kartik is its latest casualty. Dhoni is firmly perched now as India's best keeper, and he can partly thank the amount of cricket he's been playing. Sri Lanka is a bad place to drop catches. One can only hope that things don't go the way of Australia in 2003 when getting the edge was lesss than half the battle won. Not only does he need to get much better at keeping to Kumble, but he needs to bat out of his skin now.

At least Mahela didn't do a Gooch on us.
Yeah John, DK looked scratchy not enough game hours. Tho the first one off ishant made for good tv.

It's funny, when India were out here, all these Indians at the game were telling me DK was a better keeper than Dhoni.

Dhoni's been keeping to Kumble for a long time now, and getting better at it. Think DK is better against pace.
