The famous Australian left-handed batsmen Michael Bevan has rated Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni, and AB De Villiers as the best finishers in modern day cricket. In the 1990s, ODI game was different and Bevan played an important role as a finisher for Australia.
During a press conference, Bevan was asked on who he thinks is the “best finisher” in the modern game. He named MS Dhoni as one of the best finishers of all-time. He said, “I think the first question is what they call a loaded question because, clearly, you have one of the best finishers of all time in MS Dhoni. Look, he is impressive not just in finishing but just as a player in general. Clearly, he has been an outstanding performer and he’s achieved some outstanding things for Indian cricket.”
Naming two more modern crickets, which usually bat at top order but possess extraordinary ability to finish games, Bevan said, “Virat Kohli or AB de Villiers, they kind of redefine it because they kind of come in early they start and they finish. These types of guys and their performances at the moment are phenomenal; all these guys are in great company.”
Bevan will be coaching Madurai team in the TNPL starting from 23rd August. Bevan was one of finest finishers in his days. He usually came to bat at number 6 and helped Australia to win matches from difficult situations.
AB De Villiers, MS Dhoni, and Virat Kohli are best players in shorter format who can destroy any bowling attack with aggressive batting. MS Dhoni who have retired from test cricket, has still a lot to contribute in the shorter format.
