Former Australian batsman and one of the best finishers in ODI cricket history, Michael Bevan picked three players as the best finishers in limited -overs cricket. Bevan, who scored 6912 runs for Australia in 232 ODI at an average of 53.58, picked India’s limited=overs captain MS Dhoni, India’s ace batsman Virat Kohli and South Africa’s AB de Villiers as three best finishers in limited-overs cricket.

“Virat Kohli and 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,” Michael Bevan 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,” Michael Bevan added.

Speaking to The Hindu later, Michael Bevan could not hide his admiration for Dhoni. “He is a fantastic player. The manner Dhoni closes out matches is incredible. He has won so many matches for his team, staying cool and exploding at the right moment.”
