MS Dhoni is usually considered one of the great finishers in cricket history, and his impressive statistics back up this statement. Due to his ability to cross boundaries with ease, the former Indian captain was a force to deal with in the death overs. While he had a variety of skills, his ‘helicopter shot,’ which sent yorkers into the night sky, gave many bowlers restless nights. As a result, Australian bowler Pat Cummins would prefer to bowl a yorker against Dhoni in a crucial moment.
“what he would do if Dhoni to win the match for one ball and six runs against him,” a query to Pat Cummins on a(Q&A) session
I wouldn’t bowl a yorker, maybe a bouncer or slower ball or a wide Yorker: says Cummins has been very active on his YouTube account recently, despite being in isolation in Sydney. To communicate with his fans, the top-ranked Test bowler recently held a live Question and Answer (Q&A) session. Dhoni was mentioned in one of the queries. Cummins was asked what he would do if Dhoni batted against him and just had one ball to get six runs.
While the Australian speedster is known for delivering pinpoint yorkers, he would try for something different against Dhoni,“I think I have seen like a million videos of Dhoni hitting sixes off bowlers who missed yorkers. So I wouldn’t bowl a yorker, maybe a bouncer or slower ball or a wide yorker. I prefer not to be in that position,” said Pat Cummins.
I would prefer to go with a swashbuckler, in the same way, instead of going for a yorker: ‘The KKR Pacer’
In international cricket, Cummins has dismissed Dhoni twice, and both times, the talismanic wicketkeeper-batsman has been out caught. As a result, rather than going for a yorker, the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) pacer would choose to dispatch the swashbuckler in the same manner.
Dhoni, on the other hand, retired from international cricket in August 2020 and has since only played in the Indian Premier League (IPL). The skipper of the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) had a disappointing IPL 2020 season, as his team failed to qualify for the playoffs for the first time in their history. However, in IPL 2021, the three-time winners staged a stunning comeback.
CSK were second in the team standings at the time of the season suspension, with five victories in seven games. KKR, on the other hand, hasn’t had a very impressive season, as they currently sit in sixth place with only two victories in seven games. However, they hope to make a strong comeback when the season restarts.
