David Warner shared his admiration for former Indian skipper MS Dhoni as he picked him as the greatest finisher to have ever played the game. Warner who leads Delhi Capitals in the IPL, shares a great bond with many Indian cricketers including Dhoni.
Warner chose him as the greatest finisher keeping aside names like AB De Villiers and Mike Hussey. During a rapid-fire Q/A session with Jiocinema, David Warner selected the former Indian skipper as the greatest finisher in the world.
Dhoni is the only captain in the world to have won all three ICC titles namely the World Cup, Champions Trophy, and the T20 World Cup. Besides his achievements in international cricket, Dhoni has won five IPL titles with Chennai Super Kings, the latest of them being in the 2023 edition.
David Warner Picks MS Dhoni, and Jacques Kallis Among The Best In International Cricket
He later went on to pick Jacques Kallis as The GOAT of cricket and the greatest all-rounder to have ever played the game. Kallis has the best numbers for South Africa and the best among the all-rounders to have ever played the game. In 166 Test matches, he scored 13289 runs at an average of 55.4 with 45 hundreds and 58 fifties.
In 328 ODIs, the South African all-rounder scored 11579 runs at an average of 44.4 with 17 tons and 86 fifties. Kallis also played 25 T20Is scoring 666 runs with five fifties. Coupled with his runs, he picked up 577 international wickets.
David Warner scored 52 off 53 balls in the first ODI before he was dismissed. The senior batter will want to keep his form for his team heading into the World Cup. Australia lost the first ODI against India on Friday and will play the second ODI on Sunday.
Warner himself is among the top run-getters for Australia in ODIs and Test cricket. He scored 647 runs in the 2019 World Cup and will look to replicate his 2019 World Cup form if Australia are to win the World Cup.
