Former Indian Cricket team captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni has slammed big boundaries against almost every fast bowlers he faced. He was nightmare for numerous bowlers. Recently he has announced the name of the bowler who gave him hard time in the 22 yards during his career.
Dhoni who played against fast bowlers likes Brett Lee, Dale Steyn and Lasith Malinga has said, “All the fast bowlers are quite difficult, with the limited technique I had, it was very difficult to face the fast bowlers. Still, if I had to pick one, I would pick Shoaib Akhtar.”
He later explained the reason behind his choice, “Very simple reason, he was quick, he was fast, he could bowl a yorker, he could bowl a bouncer but you never expected a beamer, he was a bit unpredictable, he was fun to play against.”
The world cup winning Indian cricketer has played 32 One Day Internatiols against the Pakistan Cricket team and has 1226 runs under his belt at an average of 58.38. The wicket-keeper batsman also has two centuries and nine fifties to his name against the arch-rivals.
