Australian cricketing great Michael Hussey believes there is no doubt over MS Dhoni’s status as the greatest finisher in the sport. The former Indian skipper has won a plethora of games across his illustrious career by stepping up to perform right when the chips were down and his team was stuck in an inevitable losing position.
Given Dhoni’s esteemed reputation with the bat and his ability to calmly pace his innings, it is no surprise that Hussey has picked the wicketkeeper-batsman ahead of Aussie hero Michael Bevan as the most quality finisher in cricket. Hussey has previously shared the dressing room with Dhoni as part of his stint with the Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League (IPL).
"Dhoni is the greatest finisher of all time that the cricketing world has ever produced. Dhoni can keep his cool and make the opposition captain blink first. He also has unbelievable power. He knows that when he needs to clear the ropes, he can do it. He has that kind of self-belief,” he stated in a podcast with a leading cricket website.
