“MS has done it so many times in all formats of the game.” – AB de Villiers
De Villiers said: “Obviously me (laughs). No, I would say definitely MS Dhoni. I love watching him play. The things he has pulled off in the past… I think of that 2011 World Cup – hitting that straight six to win the World Cup. That will be engraved in my mind forever. MS has done it so many times in all formats of the game.”
“There’s always been a big debate over who’s the best finisher – me or him? We can settle it now – I say MS is the best finisher. I am very happy to give credit where credit is due. For CSK in the T20s and IPL and for India in all formats of the game – just a fantastic person, just a fantastic man. A great role model for all cricket players around the world,” he further added.
Fans have witnessed both players in their prime for a long time while playing for several teams. In IPL, De Villiers played many years for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Dhoni has only played for Chennai Super Kings (CSK).
