Karachi, March 16 (IANS) Mahendra Singh Dhoni has a new fan. Dhoni’s instinctive leadership skills have bowled over former Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul Haq, who cannot stop gushing about the Indian skipper’s calm demeanour during the tense moments in the series Down Under. “I have been impressed with his captaincy. He is calm in difficult situations and has a positive approach. He takes bold decisions and has faith in his team-mates,” Inzamam was quoted as saying in The Dawn.

Inzamam said beating Australia in their own den is a big achievement for Dhoni and his young guns.

“It is a remarkable achievement for any young captain. He believed in his decisions and it paid dividends in the end,” he said.

Inzamam said India’s aggressive behaviour on the field rattled Australia in the recently concluded series.

“Indians were aggressive right through the tour. You can win against the Australians only if you show the same level of aggression,” he said.

Inzamam, however, added that the controversies surrounding the acrimonious series indicate that the International Cricket Council needs to step in to ensure things do not get out of hand.

“There were so many controversies during the tour. The ICC now has a bigger responsibility to ensure fair play,” he said.
