KARACHI, Aug 18: The Pakistan cricket community hailed Mahendra Singh Dhoni in one voice, calling him one of the greatest captains that India produced and the one, who impacted the game in his own way.
Dhoni, who announced his retirement from international cricket on Saturday, won the ICC World Cup, World T20 and Champions Trophy titles besides taking India to the number one spot in Test cricket.
Pakistani stalwarts such as Inzamam-ul-Haq, Basit Ali, Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis, Mudassar Nazar, Shahid Afridi and many others showed immense respect for Dhoni
Inzamam, who won the most caps for Pakistan, said, �He is in my mind one of the greatest cricket captains India has produced. A true match-winner against whom I enjoyed playing a lot.�
Rashid Latif felt that Dhoni�s legacy will be remembered forever in Indian cricket but at the same time his retirement means Virat Kohli now can create his own legacy.
�Fantastic player and captain. He had this knack for reading the game so accurately and using his players accordingly for every situation and he was the perfect match finisher.
�He used to read the situation so well and finish accordingly. The criticism against him after last year�s World Cup�s semifinal was unjustified as he tried his best in difficult circumstances.� � PTI
