The most blistering media remark came in the Hindustan Times, who needed both Dhoni and mentor Duncan Fletcher sacked.

"Can there be any reason for losing an arrangement against this New Zealand side?" the paper's games journalist Sanjeev Samyal asked.

"Indeed to the degree of the danger of destabilising the group with only 12 months to strive for the World Cup, now is the right time for Indian cricket prepare to leave and selectors to do what needs to be done in the matter of the senior group administ.
