Mahendra Singh Dhoni has often been targeted by the troll army but he always managed to bounce back and give them a befitting reply by his innings. Recently, the former Indian captain played a powerful knock against Australia and finished the match in his trademark style i.e. by hitting a massive SIX!
Legendary batsman Ian Chapell came ahead to praise Dhoni and said that he still believes that there is no better finisher than Dhoni.
Ian said: “Nobody has Dhoni’s nerve for finishing off victories. Many times I’ve thought, “He’s left it too late this time. His outward calm is no illusion since his tactical adeptness in these situations is proof his brain continues to work perfectly.”
He also compared his style of playing to former cricketer Michael Bevan, who is considered to be one of the greatest finisher of the game, he said: “Where Bevan finished matches with fours, Dhoni does so with sixes. The one area – running between wickets – where you’d expect the fleet-footed Bevan to have an advantage is debatable, because even at age 37, Dhoni is among the quickest in the game. Even allowing for improved bats and the advantage of playing T20 cricket, statistically Dhoni is superior to Bevan. There can be no argument — Dhoni is the best ODI finisher.”
Dhoni was also awarded with the ‘Man Of The Series’ Award for his exceptional performance in the on-going Indian tour of Australia. The man’s talent helped India to carve the maiden ODI victory in Australia.
