Mahendra Singh Dhoni from now on will be more like a anchor, who would “control the game till the end”, reckons legendary Sachin Tendulkar. Dhoni showed his much-acclaimed finishing prowess during the second ODI against Australia and Tendulkar attributed it to a change in his thought process.
“Yesterday’s (Tuesday) contribution was good. In the first match, I felt he was a little rusty, he was not being able to hit the ball where he wanted to and that can happen to anyone. He walked out in the second match thinking differently and from ball one, he looked a different player,” Tendulkar said on his app 100MB.
Dhoni of the old was both an anchor as well as a finisher but Tendulkar is happy to see him as someone who will be able to control the game till the end. “He (Dhoni) is someone who loves to play a few dot balls, understand the wicket, how the bowlers are bowling and likes to take the game till the end. That is exactly what he did. He is someone who is going to control the game from one end,” the highest run-getter in international cricket observed.
