IPL 2024: Dhoni is not the best finisher, here is the proof, you will be stunned to see the bad figures

IPL 2024: Mahendra Singh Dhoni has created his own legacy in the history of the Indian Premier League. Recently, he proved that increasing age is just a 'number' for him by playing a stormy innings of 37 runs in 16 balls in the match against Delhi Capitals. He has helped his team win many times by hitting fours and sixes in the death overs, but now a very bad statistic related to him is coming to light in the death overs of IPL. There have been many IPL seasons when MS Dhoni played more than 30 dot balls in the death overs. Apart from him, there are many explosive batting players, whose bat has been silent many times in the death overs.

Most dot balls in death overs

Till date, the unfortunate record of playing most dot balls in death overs in a single IPL season is in the name of Mahendra Singh Dhoni. While playing for CSK in IPL 2015, he played 37 dot balls in the death overs, which is a record in itself. Well, despite this shameful record of Dhoni, Chennai reached the finals of that season, but lost to Mumbai Indians by 42 runs in the title clash.

In this matter, Dhoni's name also comes at the second place. He played 35 dot balls in the death overs in the 2014 season. At the same time, IPL 2019 also did not prove to be very good for Mahendra Singh Dhoni in terms of death overs. In 2019, he has 34 dot balls in his name in death overs. On one hand, Dhoni is considered one of the best finishers in the world, so it is a bit difficult to believe his poor record of dot balls, but this is the truth.

Andre Russell and Kieron Pollard are also not behind

Talking about franchise cricket in the world, Andre Russell and Kieron Pollard are such all-rounders who have the ability to take the ball out of the field. But these two explosive Caribbean batsmen are also not far behind in terms of playing the dot ball in the last overs. Russell has been playing for KKR in IPL since 2014 and meanwhile in IPL 2019, he played 35 dot balls in the death overs. This figure is also shocking because Russell had scored 510 runs while playing 14 matches in that season.

On the other hand, Kieron Pollard, while playing for Mumbai Indians in 2013, had played 32 dot balls in the death overs. In that season, Mumbai Indians became champions for the first time and Pollard scored 420 runs in 18 matches, but he missed many fours and sixes in the death overs.
