9. Sanjay Manjrekar

“In this game, we have seen great Captains that lead from the front & win on the big stage, seen tough Test batsmen, seen excellent keepers, seen great finishers, but one man doing all of this? Unlikely to see that again. There won’t be another Dhoni.”

8. Kapil Dev

“Dhoni is my hero. We talk a lot about Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, but this boy has as much talent as anyone in the game.”

7. Lungi Ngidi

“It was the final against the Sunrisers (Hyderabad) in 2018, we hadn’t discussed a certain field placement but he automatically just changed my field and with that field, within a couple of balls, we got a wicket to the fielder that he had moved. It just showed me how in tune he is with the game in terms of how he sees it’s going to play out and it played out exactly the way I think he thought it was going to.”

6. Richard Madley

“Dhoni’s bid in first IPL just blew the roof off. He had smashed the million-mark and that’s when I thought we have the auction going on.”

5. Mahela Jayawardene

“One inch here and there and a guy like Dhoni could take you apart. He is a great finisher, he is cool and calm and backs himself. He is a strong character.”

4. Moeen Ali

“I’ve spoken to players who have played under MS and they tell me how he improves their game. I believe a great captain does that. I think it’s something on every player’s wish list to play under MS. I think it’s the confidence and the clarity he gives people. It’s exciting.”

1. Shah Rukh Khan

“MS Dhoni is the player I have always looked up to and I want to become a finisher like him. The way he goes about the game is a masterclass for all. He is fully aware of his abilities and the beauty of his batting is that he takes the game deep. The deeper you take the game — the more pressure the bowlers will be under and that automatically gives you more options to score and finish on the winning side.”

SRK said in an interview with TOI
