The history of cricket is filled with special skippers who changed the fate of their teams. Two usual suspects of such a discussion are the Indian wicket-keeper batsman Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Australian top-order batsman Ricky Ponting. For this reason, there is always a growing debate about picking the better skipper of the two cricketers equipped with sensational abilities.
Recently, former Australian cricketer Michael Hussey jumped on the bandwagon by picking the Indian veteran as a slightly better tactician than his former teammate. Explaining his pick, the southpaw added that Dhoni’s ability to stay calm under pressure and take calculated risks makes him a genius on the field.
Particularly, he highlighted the passion of cricket in India and finding a cool head amid all this amazes the 44-year old. Moreover, the veteran of 79 Tests, 185 ODIs and 38 T20Is added that Dhoni backs the young guns all the time which helps the rookies to bring their best game forward while playing their natural game with a free mind.
