New Delhi: Team India may not have made it to the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup 2021, but something happened during the first semi-final match between England and New Zealand on Wednesday, after which former Team India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni started trending on Twitter.
Former New Zealand cricketer Simon Doull, while talking about Daryl Mitchell’s knock during the commentary, mentioned how it reminded him of what two-time World Cup winning skipper MS Dhoni had said to him about finishing the game.
“The great MS Dhoni, the great finisher… once said to me that the longer you bat and the deeper you take the game, the more worried is the opposition and its bowler. That has 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,” said Doull as he recalled legend MS Dhoni’s words.
The video of Simon Doull quoting MS Dhoni during the semi-final went viral on social media. Fans on Twitter made sure that legend MS Dhoni starts trending on the micro-blogging platform.

In the first semi-final, New Zealand registered a stunning five-wicket win against England. Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who announced his retirement from international cricket on August 15 2020, is considered to be one of the best finishers in the world.
New Zealand opener Darrell Mitchell did a MS Dhoni against England when he played a hard-fought knock to remain unbeaten at the crease till the end of the match. He played an innings unbeaten of 72 runs off 47 balls to power Kiwis to the T20 WC final. No surprises, Mitchell was crowned as the Player of the Match for his heroics.
