India vs Australia 2nd T20I: Former India skipper MS Dhoni got a rousing reception when he walked out in the middle at the Chinnaswamy for the 2nd T20I against Australia. Dhoni walked in the middle after Rishabh Pant was out for a solitary run. This is not the first time Dhoni has got such a warm welcome, it happens with him wherever he goes. The 37-year-old is the most popular cricketer in the country and enjoys a huge fan following wherever he goes. The 37-year-old is an important member of India even now. He contributes with the bat and is razor sharp behind the stumps which makes him an asset for the Men in Blue.
The Bengaluru game could be former India skipper MS Dhoni’s last T20I game. It could very well be his last as India does not have any more T20I fixtures before the World Cup. The upcoming 2019 ICC World Cup is looked at as Dhoni’s last event. The 37-year-old has served the country for more than a decade and has taken the cricket to greater heights. He has undoubtedly been India’s most successful captain ever. The veteran still continues to inspire and is extremely valuable to the team, even today. He is priceless with the bat and the gloves and his cricketing brain is irreplaceable.
Dhoni has led the team to two World triumphs; inaugural T20 in 2007 and the 2011 ICC World Cup. He has also led the team to Champions Trophy triumph and led the Test side to become No in the world. The legend has featured in 97 T20Is (excluding today’s match) and has amassed 1577 runs at a strike rate of 125.26 and an average of 37.55.
