Hussey picks the best ODI skipper between Dhoni and Ponting
Michael Hussey was asked the most difficult question of his career and he answered it smartly. He was asked to choose the best skipper between MS Dhoni and Ricky Ponting because he played under both of them.
Though, Hussey found it tough to answer the question, he finally picked Ricky Ponting over MS Dhoni.
“It’s a tough one, well, I will have to say, Ricky. I never played in ODIs with MS Dhoni, so I will go with Ricky,” Hussey was quoted as saying by Times Now.
MS Dhoni and Ricky Ponting are potential match-winners without the shadow of any doubt. They indeed have many things in common. Both have excelled with the bat in all the three formats of the game.
Coming to captaincy role, the duo has won several championships including the ICC World Cup.
Punter won the mega ICC event in 2003 and 2007, along with 2 Champions Trophies as Australia captain, while Captain Cool Dhoni won the event in 2011, then won the World T20 in 2007 and then ICC Champions Trophy in 2013.
MS Dhoni was dominant even in Asia as he won the Asia Cup in 2010 and 2016 and is the only skipper in the world to win all the major ICC championships.
Both the players are regarded as one of the greats to have graced the sport. Ponting called it quits from cricket in 2012 and MS Dhoni might as well announce his retirement in the near future.
