MS Dhoni still ODI’s best finisher, Beats Michael Bevan: Ian Chappell

With his performance in ODIs (India vs Australia), Dhoni again proved the point of 'Old Is Gold' against Australia.

Team India’s former captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni (MS Dhoni) was considered one of the world’s best finisher in one-day cricket. With the passage of time and age, Dhoni’s batting was a little lethargic and due to the slow batting, ‘Mahi’ remained in the spotlight for critics in recent times. Many people did not even have to say that Dhoni should not get a place in the ODI and T20 Indian team. However, with his performance in the ODI series (India vs Australia), Dhoni again proved the point of ‘Old Is Gold’. He not only played a key role in winning the team India in the series but also declared Man of the Series. Dhoni has responded by his performance to critics who were raising questions about his ability to bat. Dhoni’s performance in the ODI series is former Australia captain Ian Chapell is very much appreciated. According to Chappell, Dhoni, who has been 37 years old, is still the best finisher in the 50-over format.

Ian Chappell greeted the former India captain Dhoni’s sense of well-being and so long played for long. He wrote in ESPN Cricinfo in his column, “Nobody has any sense to win by winning matches like him. Many times I thought, ‘This time he has shot for a while’, but in a while he was surprised that he gave India a thrilling victory by setting two powerful shots. ‘ He said, ‘The way he looks calm from outside, he is not an illusion because in the way he changes himself in such circumstances, it is proof that his brain works best in such a situation. “Michael Bevan is considered to be one of the great managers of the game, compared to Bevan, Chappell said that Dhoni has left behind this Australian sixth-ranked batsman.

He wrote, “Bevan used to end the match from the four-corners, but Dhoni does it with sixes. As far as the race is in the middle of the wicket, you certainly would consider Bevan first, but at the age of 37, Dhoni is one of the fastest players in the game. ” Chappell said, “With the benefit of allowing improvements in the bats and playing in T20 cricket, Dhoni is better than Bevan according to the statistics. It can not be argued that Dhoni is the best ODI finisher. ‘ In the past few days, critics had criticized Dhoni’s slow innings, but this player silenced all of them with a high scintillating six in Adelaide. Regarding the debate of the best ODI batsman, Chappell feels that Virat Kohli will leave behind legend Vivian Richards, Sachin Tendulkar and AB de Villiers, and end his career as Sir Donald Bradman of ODI. they wrote, “Kohli reminds me of Richards in the manner of his ODI batting, he puts a great shot and relies on many traditional strokes. If he continues to play at this current run speed, then he will be able to cross Tendulkar’s total centuries and this little motter will be about 20 centuries ahead. ” He wrote, “If he goes even closer to achieving these great accomplishments, then there is no doubt that he will become Sir Donald Bradman of ODI batsmen. ‘ “If he gets closer to achieving these great achievements, then there is no doubt that he will become Sir Donald Bradman of ODI batsmen. ‘ “If he gets closer to achieving these great achievements, then there is no doubt that he will become Sir Donald Bradman of ODI batsmen. ‘
