Indian limited overs skipper MS Dhoni is arguably one of the finest finishers in modern day cricket. However, he was subjected to some criticism after the first T20I against West Indies at Florida on 27th August, as he failed to take his side over the line.
Team India needed 2 runs to win off the final ball with Dhoni on the strike, every Indian fan expected the captain cool to win it for them but he was dismissed by Dwayne Brave as India lost by a run.
As expected he was trending on Twitter, as some of the fans criticized MS Dhoni for the loss and some others defended him after what happened. However, the fans need to understand how difficult it can be to pull it off each time. In a pressure situation, he missed his timing as he failed to pick the slower delivery from Bravo who is undoubtedly one of the best death bowlers.
Meanwhile, KL Rahul was the key in India’s chase as he remained unbeaten on 110 and also became the third batsman after Suresh Raina and Rohit Sharma to score centuries in all three formats of the game for India.
With the win, West Indies is leading the series 1-0, and will take on India in the 2nd T20I today (28th August), at the same venue and without a doubt, it will also be a run fest.
Here is how the Twitter reacted as MS Dhoni failed to finish it off for India in the 1st T20I:
Spare a thought for MS Dhoni. First he was unable to finish the match and now he has to tolerate Ravi Shastri at the presentation.#IndvsWI

KL Rahul should have refused to take a single when he got strike. Do a Dhoni on Dhoni. #IndvWI

And India lose by 1 run after Dhoni is caught off Bravo. Maybe we needed Sushant Singh Rajput in there. #IndvsWI

MS Dhoni isn't the finisher he used to be, but offer him a length delivery, and he'll clear 100m faster than Bolt.
