MS Dhoni is a magnificent power-hitter by trait. His decisive approach in setting off the innings at a sedate pace and flexing his muscles once he settles in his widely known.
What adds colour to his stature is his ability to generate immense bat speed. The amount of bat speed that he triggers is more than the pace of the ball itself.
Terrifying helicopter shots with just a flick of his wrists is enough to send the jitters down the opposition’s spine with tingles down the fans’ spine.
MS Dhoni, in a recent interview with The Print, shared one of the reasons how he plays the game well. He said that he learnt a lot from the seniors that he came across.
Dhoni might have a limited batting technique but his lofty standards of punching and counterpunching techniques in crunch situations is what presses the strong case.
It is because of playing and sharing a great deal of rapport with the seniors, MS Dhoni was able to cultivate some additional features that helped him to instil power.
“We lived in a colony and were only two or three of us that were of the same age group, the other children were at least five or six years older to us.
Maybe that is one of the reasons that I play cricket well because I have always played cricket with people who were older than me, which meant that they had more power and they understood the game better. Playing with them made me better,” Dhoni said.
