“I’m very happy to give credit where it’s due.” – AB de Villiers
“I see always a big debate going on between who is the best finisher between me & Dhoni, we can settle it now. I will say MS Dhoni is the best finisher ever. I’m very happy to give credit where it’s due,” said De Villiers in a video on his YouTube channel.
“For CSK in the T20s and IPL and for India in all formats of the game – just a fantastic person, just a fantastic man. A great role model for all cricket players around the world,” de Villiers said on record. I love watching him play. The things he has pulled off in the past… I think of that 2011 World Cup – hitting that straight six to win the World Cup. That will be engraved in my mind forever. MS has done it so many times in all formats of the game,” he added later.
