Tendulkar mentioned that it was Dhoni's calm influence that was rubbing off on all his team-mates and described Dhoni's handling of pressure was incredible.
Red and Yellow soils Red and Yellow soils are found in some highly separated regions. It was under his captaincy that India climbed to No. In these climatic conditions, leaching of soil takes place which is a process in which fertile portion of the soil gets washed away by heavy rains. They are rich in humus and very fertile. It also provides valuable building materials. When properly drained and fertilized, these soils produce good crops of rice.
Tea is grown in those areas which receive sufficient rainfall. Most of the rivers originate from the Himalayas and bring along high amount of sediments with them. Horizons put together, form a soil profile. And soil is the bedrock of geography. The soil of the Northern Plains is very fertile.
It has Lime, Iron, Magnesia and Alumina, Potash in a large amount but has Phosphorous, Nitrogen and organic matter is very low quantity. It is coarse with big pieces of rocks. Brown line indicates 10 match average while the orange line indicates career average progression. This soil is mainly found near river banks because its deposition comes from the Himalayas with means of rivers. Lara was summoned by the match referee to give an explanation of his actions but he was not fined.
Top crops: These soils are generally covered with water during the monsoon and they are used for rice cultivation as soon as the monsoon passes. This kind of soil becomes soft when wet and hardens when dry. It acts as an interface between hydrosphere, lithosphere, earth's atmosphere and biosphere. The below quiz tests your knowledge on Soils in India and reflects on your current preparedness in the topic. Along the river basins of some plateau and mountain regions also found the alluvial oil.
With good fertilizers, they can grow crops like tea, coffee, spices, and fruit. This is called soil erosion. Soil formation starts when rock is exposed to the atmosphere. Mainly found in Kottayam and Alappuzha districts of Kerala where it is called Kari. Due to its softness and fertility, alluvial soil is most suited to irrigation and can produce bumper crops of rice, wheat, maize, sugar cane, tobacco, cotton, jute, oilseeds, etc. These soils which are covered at the rainy season under the water and therefore it is utilized for paddy cultivation later.
A batting collapse saw the team being dismissed for 100 and Dhoni scored just 5 runs and faced criticism for his wicket-keeping lapses as well as his shot selections.

He had come after the dismissal of Virat Kohli, also a right-handed batsman. The soil is deficient in fertility and organic matter. Such regions are mostly found in Rajasthan and the adjoining areas of Haryana and Punjab.
This type of soil is normally deficient in nitrogen and is poor in lime content; it is an acidic soil. Due to intensive leaching, the laterite soil generally lacks fertility and is of low value for crop production. The Ganga-Brahmaputra valley is very useful for jute cultivation. Alongside the aforementioned regions, this soil is also found in Krishna, Godavari, Kaveri, and Mahanadi. It includes even the wind-blown loess.
It is the most fertile soil and it supports any kind of crop in it. It is a factor that influences the vegetation, wildlife, and human culture in that region. These two soils have phosphate and potash in very low amount. When the vegetation growing in such wet places dies, it decomposes very slowly dues to excessive wetness of soils and after several hundreds of year a layer of partly decayed organic matter accumulates on the surface, giving rise to such peaty and marshy soils. Desert soil is majorly consistÃof sand.
