Gautam Gambhir Described This Star Batter As A Better ODI Finisher Than MS Dhoni, After India Defeated New Zealand In ODI World Cup 2023

Virat Kohli’s prowess with the bat is a well-known phenomenon in the cricketing world. However, what’s truly remarkable is his ability to finish matches under high-pressure situations. His recent performances in the World Cup have elevated him to a new level of admiration.

With his back against the wall, Kohli yet again showcased his batting masterclass while chasing. His latest feat was guiding India to a sensational four-wicket victory, where he mixed caution with aggression. In the match, the 35-year-old formed two vital partnerships with KL Rahul and Ravindra Jadeja, ultimately securing a memorable win.

Kohli’s 95 runs were the major cornerstone of India’s fifth victory in the World Cup. His innings was a blend of elegance and effectiveness, demonstrating his ability to handle pressure and deliver when it matters most.

This match also marked a significant milestone for Kohli. It was his 30th century while chasing, a record that even the legendary Sachin Tendulkar does not boast of. Kohli’s remarkable consistency and composure in run chases have set him apart.

In the cricketing world, comparisons are inevitable, especially when it comes to finishing matches. It’s often said that MS Dhoni is one of the finest finishers the game has seen. However, Gautam Gambhir, the former Indian cricketer, believes that Kohli has surpassed even Dhoni in the art of finishing. Gambhir emphasizes that their batting position does not solely define a finisher, and Kohli’s ability to master chases makes him the best in the business.

Gautam Gambhir said, “There is no better finisher than Virat Kohli. A finisher is not only those who bat at No.5 or No.7, he is a chase master”. (Star).

India’s quest to break the New Zealand jinx was realized in this match. The Indian team held their nerve in a close run chase in Dharamshala, putting an end to a long-standing challenge. This victory was a moment of celebration for Indian cricket fans.
