IPL 2023: MS Dhoni or Ab De Villiers, Who Is The Best Finisher? Imran Tahir Picks His Choice

Former South African and Chennai Super Kings player, Imran Tahir, has stated that AB de Villiers is a better finisher than MS Dhoni in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Tahir praised de Villiers for his versatility in batting and said that he can bat in any phase of the innings including opening the innings and he can also build the innings from scratch.

Imran Tahir knows both Dhoni and De Villiers in and out. At one side, he has played for Chennai Super Kings for couple of years, on the other hand Ab De Villiers was his teammate and they both have enjoyed all the three formats of cricket together.

While speaking to media during the RR vs CSK clash, Tahir said,“Mujhe muskil me daal diya hai lekin dekhein mai samjhata hu ki modern cricket ka jo maine sabse best player dekha hai wo maine ye kaha bhi hai to mai usi pe atal rahunga and that’s ABD. Maine use bada player nahi dekha. Wo finishing ke role mein kare ya upar se inning ko build karne ke role me rahe, Mai samajhata hu, jitni cricket main khela hu, maine ABD jaisa player nahi dekha.(You have put me under the pump, but as far as I think, I have not seen anyone better than ABD [AB de Villiers]. So, I would stick to him. I have not seen any bigger player than him, whether it’s finishing or building an innings at the top order. I have not seen any other player as special as him during my career).”

Imran Tahir won the purple cap playing for Chennai Super Kings in 2018 where he picked 26 wickets. This was the year when CSK lifted the trophy after coming from a two-year ban.
