With COVID-19 suspending all the cricket activities, most of the athletes are regularly interacting with fellow cricketers and fans in live sessions. Recently, the Indian off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin jumped on the bandwagon and received a question about the toughest T20 batsman he bowled in his career.
The veteran of 71 Tests, 111 ODIs and 46 T20Is wasted no time in revealing the name of the former Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Ashwin said that he always rated Dhoni among the best batters ever to play T20 cricket. He added that the belligerent striker became even more potent towards the backend of the innings and it remained a herculean task to control him.
Not only that, Ashwin believes Dhoni was the greatest captain to lead the blue team. He also recalled playing under him for Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League (IPL) where he remained in awe of the Indian veteran. It is important to note that Dhoni has led Chennai to 3 titles in 10 seasons.
