Cricket World Player of the Week – MS Dhoni India
MS Dhoni is this week’s Cricket World Player of the Week. In the ODI series against Australia, MSD rolled back the years, scoring 51 in Sydney, 55* in Adelaide and 87* in Melbourne. He also picked up the Player of the Series Award as well.
A fantastic performance by MS Dhoni ;which rounded off an historic tour for India to Australia.
Another close contender was Duanne Olivier – the South African fast bowler reached a career-best 24th position in the MRF Tyres ICC Test Player Rankings after another stellar performance in the final Test in Johannesburg, which his side won by 107 runs, to complete a 3-0 series sweep over Pakistan.
Olivier’s match haul of eight for 125 in the final game has lifted him eight slots in the list led by his compatriot Kagiso Rabada. His 24 wickets in the series not only got him the player of the series award, but also see him gain 29 slots overall in the rankings after starting the series in 53rd place.
