Cricket World Player of the Week - MS Dhoni Chennai Super Kings
This week’s Cricket World Player of the Week is India and Chennai Super Kings legend MS Dhoni, who rolled back the years and took Chennai Super Kings to the top of the Indian Premier League.
Our match reporter Saksham Mishra describes his performances against Delhi Daredevils and Royal Challengers Bangalore
“They said he was over. They said he could no longer chase down totals. But MSD’s critics have ended up with egg on their faces as the Captain cool turned the clock 7 years back with some clean striking and sensational finishing. MSD 70*

With an unbeaten 70 run innings and a record partnership with Ambati Rayudu, Dhoni hit 7 towering sixes which included his winning smack off Corey Anderson over long on, reminiscent of his World Cup winnings six.”
“The old warhorse MSD (51*), on the other hand, scored at a strike rate of over 230, blasting his 3rd IPL half-century of the season.”
In close contention, in the UK, in wet and wintry weather conditions, Jake Ball, the Nottinghamshire CCC and England paceman, has been outstanding with the ball and is the leading wicket taker, with 21 wickets, in the Specsavers County Championship Division 1.
