Former Chennai Super Kings (CSK) captain MS Dhoni is one of the best finishers in white-ball cricket. During his team’s recent match against Mumbai Indians (MI), he scored an unbeaten knock of 28 off just 13 deliveries and won the game in a last-over thriller as well. Meanwhile, former Australia spinner Brad Hogg has recently decoded MS Dhoni’s finishing abilities.

MS Dhoni finished the game with a boundary

Speaking on his YouTube channel, he said that the CSK star has the belief that he can chase down any total in the final over of a game. Hogg explained: “MS Dhoni wants that particular moment. He wants it because he believes in himself. No target is too big. Whether it’s 15 runs an over or 30 runs an over, he still believes that he can get his team over the line. Also the reputation, he already knows that the bowler is thinking that he is good at this role at the back end and he can win from any situation.”

“His scoring rate is not that high in the 18th and the 19th over,” he added. “He is just working the ball around, making sure that he’s got control of the run rate. It’s between him and the bowler in the final over and he tries to attack the bowler in the first couple of balls. Once he does that, his reputation overrides the bowler’s mind,” Hogg further added.

However, the Chennai-based side will next play against the Punjab Kings (PBKS) at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
