FORMER New Zealand captain Stephen Fleming said Mahendra Singh Dhoni remains the best finisher of the limited overs game, hailing the World Cup-winning captain after he turned the clock back with a destructive knock.

India’s most successful captain in both Tests and ODIs cracked a 34-ball 61 to steer Rising Pune Supergiant to a last-ball victory over Sunrisers Hyderabad.


“It was vintage, wasn’t it? It was a performance that was befitting of a man who has the reputation of being a great finisher,” Rising Pune Supergiant coach Fleming said.


He added, “There has been a discussion around when was the last time he has played an innings like that. You got to remember playing an innings like that we had got a bit blasé about how special they were.
