Australia will recognise the name instantly because it belongs to one of their most famous movies. Sri Lanka's Aravinda de Silva owned it during his career, but it it only fair it is now handed over. To MS Dhoni who, from today, must be nicknamed "Mad Max." It has way more street cred than the schmaltzy "Captain Cool" that he is called by the commentariat and is a perfect reflection of the Test innings that will define him: a full tilt, counter-attacking, noise generating double-hundred against Australia in Chennai. It was a calculated, resolute and complete destruction of an opposition's bowling attack, its plans and maybe even its future course of action in this series.
At the end of day three, Dhoni was batting on 206 off 243 balls, his first three-figure knock in Tests since the 144 against West Indies at Eden Gardens in November 2011. India are 515 for 8, 135 ahead on a pitch that is beginning to disintegrate.
