Former New Zealand cricketer Simon Doull has said that legendary Indian captain MS Dhoni once told him that the “deeper you take the game”, the more worried will be the opposition bowling unit, and Daryl Mitchell successfully did that in the semi-final of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 clash against England.

In the Semi-final of the ongoing World Cup, The Blackcaps won the toss and invited England to bat first. Batting first, England batters did a very good job, and they were able to post 166 runs on the board, with all-rounder Moeen Ali being the top getter for the team with 51 runs under his belt.

Doull, during the commentary on air, said: “The great MS Dhoni, the great finisher, once said to me that the longer you bat, the deeper you take the game, the more worried is the opposition and its bowlers.”

He further added that Mitchell saw Martin Guptill and Kane Williamson get dismissed early and made sure that he batted till the very end. He said: “That is what Daryl Mitchell has done here tonight. He saw the first two New Zealand wickets go down cheaply but ensured he batted through, and here is taking his team closer to a place in the final.”
