Chasing South Africa’s David Miller goal to win Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s match, Mahendra Singh Dhoni wants to imbibe his virtue of remaining calm even under pressure.
Miller will play for the Rajasthan Royals in the Indian Premier League starting September 19. He was in the Kings XI Punjab team for eight years.
He told ESPN Cricinfo, ‘I am convinced of the way Dhoni plays. He remains calm even in moments of pressure. I want to be on the field in the same way. ‘
Miller said, ‘He also has strengths and weaknesses as a batsman and mine too. I want to bat like them while chasing the target. I want to be a ‘finisher’ like him. ‘
He said, ‘Let’s see how my career goes forward. Only then will I be able to assess. Dhoni is among the best finishers in the world and has proved many times. I like watching his batting.
Miller scored 213 runs in ten matches for Punjab last year. He said, ‘For the past few years, I was not playing much for Punjab and that is why I was not able to win the match either. Now I have more experience and I know what to do. ‘
