Mumbai: Indian skipper Dhoni does not like if his team is called sub-continental kings, albeit in the last two years they have lost three major foreign tours against England, Australia and recently South Africa but persuasively defeated Australia, West Indies and New Zealand at home.


 
Moments before leaving for the New Zealand tour, MS Dhoni blamed media for giving them the tagline of ‘lions at home and lambs abroad'.
 
“It's the media that loves to associate us with the tagline of sub-continental kings,” Dhoni said at a press conference here on Saturday.
 
He further said, “We lost in the last series in South Africa and before that we didn't perform well in England and Australia but other than that we have done really well in West Indies and New Zealand,”.
 
“If you see in South Africa, we did very well in the two Test matches series. We lost the second Test because we did poorly in one session of two and half hours,” Dhoni added.
