Top 5 Reasons Why MS Dhoni Has Haters Despite Him Being One Of The Most Successful Cricketers Of All Time
Indian fans love cricket. Dhoni is considered one of the most successful cricketers of all time. However, some Indian fans hate Dhoni. Here are the top 5 reasons why some Indian fans hate Dhoni.
MS Dhoni’s fading finishing ability
MS Dhoni’s finishing ability has seen a steady decline over the past few years. He is widely considered to be one of the greatest finishers in India. However, in some matches, he couldn’t finish the game well.
In 2015, India vs South Africa at Kanpur, India lost the match by just 5 runs. In the last over, India just needed 11 runs. He scored 2 runs on the first ball and 1 run on the second ball. However, he could not perform well on the 4th ball. He tried to slog across the line but ended up top-edging which was taken by Kagiso Rabada.
Selecting players despite their poor performance
He often keeps faith in his players and has sometimes backed the cricketers despite their consistent poor performance. During the 2012-‘13 season, Dhoni backed the selection of Rohit Sharma and promoted him to the opener’s slot despite his poor performance.
Preference for CSK players
This is the main reason why a lot of people hate him. They said that Dhoni always gave the chance to CSK players despite their poor performances.
