Dhoni is the best finisher, should stay for 1 or 2 years more, says Lasith Malinga
"He lauded Dhoni’s situation handling skills and said no one can beat him in the future also. When asked if he should continue, Malinga answered in affirmative"
Dhoni has faced a lot of flak from some ‘cricket experts’ for his slow batting in the on-going world cup. But there have also been many who have supported his style of play, people who understand pitch and situation and don’t see cricket is strike rates and averages. One such great who came out in full support of the former Indian captain is Lasith Malinga. In an interview given to ANI ahead of the match on Saturday, Malinga backed Dhoni to continue playing for India.
Malinga said Dhoni is the best finisher in last ten years and there is no one better than him in world cricket. He lauded Dhoni’s situation handling skills and said no one can beat him in the future also. When asked if he should continue, Malinga answered in affirmative. According to him Dhoni needs to stay for a couple of more years to help some younger players attain the role of finisher.
MS Dhoni’s boots are quite big to fill. It’s yet to be seen if there can be a player in future who can handle pressure like him. At present there is no one can shift gears like MS Dhoni. Hardik Pandya and Pant have the top gear but they are still not the guys to send in when four wickets are down for under 50.
