Virat Kohli Vs MS Dhoni | Who Is The Best?

Virat Kohli Vs MS Dhoni | Who Is The Best?

MS Dhoni And Virat Kohli! 

Two of the greatest cricketers to ever play the game! Some belief Dhoni to be the most influential Indian player of all time and Kohli to be the best-limited overs batsman of all time. One similar compliment which both the players get is that they both are one of the best finishers the game has ever seen. 

When it comes to their IPL performances, Dhoni has been the most inspiring captain in the IPL history with 3 titles and 5 runners-up finishes, while Kohli has been the most successful batsman with 5412 runs as of now.

By looking at their batting and captaincy records, let's do a small comparison on how the Indian giants have fared over the last 12 seasons in the cash-rich tournament.

MS Dhoni Statistics:

MS Dhoni has had one of the best careers as an IPL player, both as a wicketkeeper-batsman and as a captain for Chennai Super Kings and Rising Pune Supergiants. For someone who predominantly played as a lower-order batsman, Dhoni has amassed 4432 runs at an astonishing average of 42.2 thanks to his 65, not outs, during which he has helped the team win several matches from improbable situations. 

His incredible cricketing mind and street-smart captaincy skills have helped CSK to be the most consistent team in IPL history with 10 play-off finishes, 8 final appearances and 3 titles.

Virat Kholi Statistics:

Virat Kohli, as a batsman, has been incredible, to say the least with a total aggregate of more than 5400 runs in the 12 IPL seasons he has played. Also, he is the only player in the IPL history to have played for just one team, maintaining his allegiance to the RCB (Royal Challengers Bangalore) camp all this while. 

However, as a captain, he has not really been able to deliver the goods as RCB is yet to win an IPL title since his appointment in 2013. With only two playoffs qualifications, the team has otherwise finished at the bottom-two four times and once at 5th place.

Apart from the difference in title wins, there is hardly anything to differentiate between the two in terms of impactful performances. Tell us your opinion who is the best and your favourite cricketer, Virat Kohli or MS Dhoni?
