Mahendra Singh Dhoni team India’s wicketkeeper and the batsman has played crucial innings for India several times in past. He has defeated opposition on a number of occasions and won the match with his innings. That is why he is considered the best finisher in the world.
In the first T20 match between India and Australia which was played in Visakhapatnam. When Team India was in a crisis situation and entire middle order failed and no partnership build then the Mahendra Singh Dhoni came to the ground, the fans had a lot of expectation from him, but here he was disappointed by playing a very slow inning.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni last inning was criticized on social media for slow playing
Mahendra Singh Dhoni went to bat in the 11th over and he scored an unbeaten 29 in 37 balls. Dhoni played his only six on the second ball of the 20th over. Thanks to his innings India could reach 126 runs in 20 overs. This innings of Dhoni was widely criticized on social media, but Jaspreet Bumrah and Glenn Maxwell came in his defense.
Glenn Maxwell supported Dhoni and defended his slow inning
Glenn Maxwell supported Dhoni and said, I can understand the slow run speeds by Dhoni. It was not easy to score runs on the wicket which become very slow. While defending Dhoni Indian Pace Bowler Jaspreet Bumrah said, “We tried our best. I think he (Dhoni) wanted to make a safe score. We scored 15-20 runs less but still, we did a good fight.”
For today’s match we can expect a good performance by Dhoni, he had scored 273 runs in 16 innings against Australia at the strike rate of 106.64. the pitch in Bangalore’s Chinnaswamy Stadium can also be good for Dhoni. Chinnaswamy Stadium is known for high scoring matches and it gives full support to batsmen.
We hope India will play in today’s match and opening batsman along with middle order will score some good run on the scoreboard. Along with Dhoni the entire Indian squad on in pressure to win this match.
If they lose today’s match then it will be very embarrassing for Team India and they will lose the 2 matches series with 2:0.
