Former England captain Michael Vaughan lauded Mahendra Singh Dhoni on Sunday for his performance against Australia on the third day of the first cricket Test match at the M.A. Chidambaram Stadium.
Dhoni scored an unbeaten 206 to take India to 515/8, to give the hosts a lead of 135 runs with two days left in the match. During his innings, which included 22 boundaries and five massive sixes, he scored at a strike rate of 84.77.
“The coolest man in world cricket MS Dhoni delivers when it most matters… Incredible innings against the Aussies… #Dhoni,” tweeted Vaughan.
In the process, Dhoni also crossed the 4,000-run mark in Test cricket. He also has the highest individual score by an Indian wicketkeeper-batsman when he surpassed Budhi Kunderan’s 192.
Legendary spinner Shane Warne was also impressed by Dhoni’s knock.
“WOW, M S Dhoni is going off here in Chennai, amazing batting,” tweeted Warne.
