Chennai Super Kings skipper MS Dhoni has a reputation for remaining calm under duress.
It’s commonly known that MS Dhoni is a finisher. Over the years, the skipper of the Chennai Super Kings has developed a reputation for remaining calm under pressure. Both for Chennai Super Kings and the Indian cricket team, he continues to do this action. AB de Villiers was chosen as a superior finisher by South African spinner Imran Tahir, who spent some time playing for CSK in the Indian Premier League (IPL). When he played for Royal Challengers Bangalore, De Villiers was also a force to be reckoned with.
Who among ABD and MSD is a better finisher? Tahir was questioned while commentating on Star Sports during the IPL 2023 match between CSK and RR on Thursday.
The former South African spinner had no trouble making a decision. “Choosing is difficult. There is, in my opinion, no stronger player in the contemporary game than ABD. It doesn’t matter if it’s to close out an inning or to set up the top of the lineup. The best I’ve ever seen, he is. As a result, I will choose him over MSD,” Tahir stated.
In the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023, regardless of whether he is playing there or not, MS Dhoni appears to have the support of the crowd everywhere he goes. The storied captain, 41, has declared that this is the “last phase” of his career. This may be Dhoni’s final IPL season, according to various sources. He has already hung up his international cricket boots.
Fans showed up in en masse a few days ago to cheer Dhoni at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. In the CSK-Rajasthan Royals game on Thursday in Jaipur, nothing changed. Following the toss, RR captain Sanju Samson made a statement.
We want to bat first, please. We prefer to focus on defending because that is our area of strength. Playing in RR’s 200th game and having played for a decade both feel fantastic. Though we all know why it’s yellow, I really would have liked to see some pink about today (smiles). Sanju Samson stated during the toss that Boult will be out due to a niggle and Zampa will take his place.
