MS Dhoni “The Best Finisher In The Game”: Faf Du Plessis

Former South Africa captain Faf du Plessis, of CSK, took Suresh Raina’s #MyIPLMoment challenge. He shared his favourite moments with his team. Faf took to social media sharing quite a few CSK memories. The most recent one being MS Dhoni‘s 84 off 48 balls against RCB. “It was one the best knocks that I had ever seen,” Faf said. “I feel MS Dhoni is the best finisher in the game,” he added. He also rated Suresh Raina’s century against Kings XI Punjab back in 2013 as one of the best knocks in the IPL.

During the video, Faf also added Dwayne Bravo and Shane Watson to the list of players who performed brilliantly for CSK in pressure situations. He went on to say, “Dwayne Bravo’s knock against Mumbai Indians in 2018 where he scored 67 or 70 in 40-odd balls was brilliant as we were completely out of the game. How we won it I still don’t know”.

Talking about Shane Watson, Faf said, “Watson’s knock in 2018 final where he scored a century won us the game and he did the same in 2019 but we fell two runs short of victory.”

Shane Watson has been in great touch for CSK in the past couple of seasons.

Faf also nominated former CSK batsman Michael Hussey to share his favourite CSK moments. Michael Hussey is currently appointed as the batting coach of the Chennai Super Kings.

The IPL has been postponed indefinitely. Therefore, cricketers are finding ways to keep their fans engaged on social media.
