Former India captain MS Dhoni is one of the fewest sports personalities who accomplished almost everything in their professional career. Dhoni enjoyed a long and fruitful career in which he completely changed the dynamics of Indian cricket.
Under MSD’s inspiring leadership, Team India won all the major ICC trophies. The Ranchi-born superstar guided India to win the inaugural T20 World Cup back in 2007, followed by the 50-over World Cup victory in 2011 and the Champions Trophy triumph in 2013.
As a player, too, the veteran stumper has dominated the international arena.
Dhoni has played 538 matches overall which is the sixth-highest and second among Indian cricketers. The right-handed attacking stroker maker has accumulated over 17,000 runs across the formats at an average of 44.74 with 15 hundreds and 108 half-centuries.
Further, the 39-year-old has effected 829 dismissals (634 catches, 195 stumpings) – third highest after Mark Boucher (998) and Adam Gilchrist (905). After achieving such amazing statistics, there is no surprise that Dhoni has a mass fan following across the globe.
Out of his millions of fans, one belongs to the current South African team in the form of explosive batter David Miller. The left-handed stroke maker rated Dhoni as the best finisher and appreciated the former Indian skipper for his humbleness and calmness.
Miller said all this while responding to a fan’s question on social media. He wrote: “One of my favourite cricketers… Best finisher I’ve seen, very humble and love his calm demeanour.”

Miller will soon be seen in action in the upcoming five-match T20I series against West Indies, starting from June 26 at St George in Grenada. The 31-year-old has so far played 134 ODIs and 81 T20Is, amassing 3331 and 1525 runs, respectively.
The Pietermaritzburg-born was recently spotted in the fourteenth season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021, representing Rajasthan Royals (RR). Miller has appeared in a total of 86 IPL games, scoring 1952 runs at an average of 33.6 with one century and 10 half-tons.
