MS Dhoni and Muttiah Muralitharan
- Murali believes Dhoni learned to play second in CSK
- Murali also said that this is the reason why Dhoni came before Yuvi in the World Cup final.
- Sri Lankan spinner told that only select Indian batsmen could play his second
New Delhi: Sri Lankan great off-spinner Muttiah Muralitharan recounted the historic moment of Indian cricket when Captain Cool MS Dhoni came to bat before Yuvraj Singh, taking a big decision. Yuvraj Singh was in his best form. Dhoni, however, came first in the final and scored the winning runs to make India the world champions again after 28 years. Over the years, fans and experts have given many reasons as to whether MS Dhoni came out to bat before Yuvraj Singh.
Now Muttiah Muralitharan himself has disclosed about this. Murali’s statement has presented a whole new angle on this incident. According to the 49-year-old Muralitharan, MS Dhoni used to play his second well, in which Yuvraj Singh was not completely confident. This was the reason that the captain of the Indian team, taking a tough decision, decided to come before Yuvraj Singh to bat. MS Dhoni’s decision proved to be a masterstroke.
Dhoni played an unbeaten 91 to give India a memorable World Cup title. This World Cup was dedicated by India to the great batsman Sachin Tendulkar. Muralitharan, who is the highest wicket-taker in the history of international cricket, if a player of the level is telling something, then it cannot be ignored. Muralitharan said Dhoni read his second very well while playing for Chennai Super Kings in the IPL, for which the batsman deserves credit.
Only select batsmen could understand the second: Murali
In a conversation with ESPNcricinfo, Muralitharan said, “I would say that when I bowled to him in Chennai, he finally understood him very well. I remember Yuvraj Singh had no idea of my bowling in the World Cup. He was going to bat, but I think Dhoni came out to bat first because of me. Sachin Tendulkar used to play second well. I think Rahul Dravid also used to read it very well.
Murali further said, ‘VVS Laxman and Gautam Gambhir also used to take the second game. Virender Sehwag does not know whether he used to be comfortable in it every time or not. When I did the second one, I didn’t use seams. So you will not see it with the seam. You have to pay attention to my wrist for this. Among Sri Lankan batsmen Kumar Sangakkara, Mahela Jayawardene, Aravind de Silva, Marvan Atapattu used to play second. Tillakaratne Dilshan never understood.
Muttiah Muralitharan retired from international cricket after the 2011 World Cup. After this he is playing the role of mentor in IPL.
