Mahendra Singh Dhoni is best finisher in the world: Virat Kohli

New Delhi: Premier Indian batsman, across all formats, Virat Kohli has been in prime form ahead of the ICC World T20. Even in the Asia Cup T20 final against Bangladesh he played a match-wining knock to take India home.

Kohli has made it a habit of finishing off matches of late. However, he still feels that Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni is the best finisher in the world.

After beating Tigers in the final by eight wickets, Kohli heaped praise on Shikhar Dhawan and Dhoni.

“I think Shikhar played himself in really nicely. My only aim was to keep going at the other end so that the run-rate doesn’t stop. I had to understand my role. Once Shikhar got towards the end of his innings, I hit two or three boundaries which released pressure for us. Then MS Dhoni came in and did what he does best. He is the best finisher in the world. All in all, it was a wonderful game,” Kohli told BCCI.TV.

Kohli also looked quite confident about his won batting as he added: “I am happy I am contributing at the right times for the team. Good habits are really hard to create and once you get them, you need to be in full flow and continue them day in and day out. I think that break really helped me focus again and continue what I did in Australia. I am really glad I could contribute in all the games here.”
