MS Dhoni’s ability to strike the ball big, especially during the death overs and his street-smart wicket keeping skills make him an indispensable property in T20’s.
Known for the knack of creating and breaking records, India’s highest impact player, MS Dhoni has a possibility to add yet another feather to his illustrious career.
MS Dhoni could become only the third player to register 50 T20I wins after the three-match T20I series against Sri Lanka, the first of which will be played in Cuttack today.
Shoaib Malik and Shahid Afridi currently lead the pack with 61 and 57 T20 International wins respectively.
Though having given up captaincy duties in the limited overs format(Dhoni has retired from red ball cricket), Dhoni continues to be the ‘unofficial captain’ of India, supplying Virat and Rohit(in this series) with crucial tips during important junctures of the game.
India’s greatest connoisseur also has a possibility to break AB de Villiers’ record of most dismissals in T20Is in the upcoming match against Sri Lanka.
With the skilled duo of wrist spinners in the ranks, it is more likely that MS Dhoni with 70 dismissals in T20Is has a fair chance to nudge past AB de Villiers’ 72.
India would be hoping to start the the T20 series on a high by winning the first one T20 in Cuttack, a venue where India hasn’t quite performed well in the past few years.
