Irfan Pathan named MS Dhoni as the “ultimate finisher” in the IPL￼
Irfan Pathan feels IPL has observed several finishers but Dhoni’s status is second to none because Dhoni has been the face of this mega event since its inception while Dhoni played an outstanding match-winning knock against Mumbai Indians.
Former India Pacer Irfan Pathan feels IPL has observed several finishers but MS Dhoni’s status is second to none because the former Indian skipper has been the face of this mega event since its inception.
Dhoni has played an outstanding match-winning knock against the Mumbai Indians. With his performances in the most exciting season of IPL, Dhoni is proving why he’s considered the ultimate finisher in the tournament.
Speaking on ‘Cricket Live’ on Star Sports, Pathan said:
“MS Dhoni is the greatest finisher in the history of IPL. Year after year, someone else has been joining this list but no one has been able to displace Dhoni. He is the identity of this league, it’s a true ambassador. MSD and AB de Villiers have been the biggest finishers in the history of IPL, but Dhoni is at the forefront of it.”
“He is the greatest. If we talk about this season, it is pertinent to mention the names of Rahul Tewatia, Dinesh Karthik, and Shimron Hetmyer because they have been finishing the games continuously for their teams. But when it comes to the ultimate finisher, obviously only one name will come to the mind and that is Dhoni’s,”he added.
The Former pacer also claimed that despite languishing at the bottom half of the points table, no team can still take the Chennai Super Kings lightly as the defending champions know how to win games from the worst of situations.
“No team can make the mistake of underestimating CSK. This is a team that knows how to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. This team has done it many a time and that is why it has always been the most dangerous of sides in the history of the league.”
Chennai Super Kings was in all trouble in the ongoing Indian Premier League and they couldn’t make a strong impact on the tournament. CSK will play their next game against Punjab Kings at the Wankhede Stadium on Monday.
Punjab Kings is currently in the eighth position of the points table, just one win superior of the Chennai Super Kings while for Jadeja and his side, it has only been two wins from the 7 matches that they have played, one of their worst records in an IPL campaign.
