The former Indian captain, Mahendra Singh Dhoni has created several world-class records in world cricket’s histories. He has played in the middle-order, throughout his lifetime. The right-handed middle-order batsman has scored a high run rate, a lot of times. He has got a batting average of 50.6 in the One Day Internationals (ODIs), 38.1 in the Test, and 37.6 in Twenty20. Dhoni is a great finisher, and his consistency and stability are just mind-blowing. Other than being a great batsman, he is also a great captain and an outstanding wicket-keeper and a fielder. His wicketkeeping skills are too good to be criticized. He has made India win in the 2011 World Cup, and many other T20I trophies.
On the other hand, Matthew Scott Wade, the Australian cricketer has represented the team as a wicket-keeper in all three formats. He has also been seen bowling and batting, in several matches. The middle-order and left-handed batsman has done wonders on the fields. He is regarded as one of the best wicketkeepers of all time. He has a batting average of 31.51 in Test, 25.75 in ODIs, and 41.1 in the domestic First-Class tournament. As a wicketkeeper, he has played a great role too.
Both MS Dhoni and Matthew Wade are excellent cricketers. Both the middle-order wicketkeeper batsmen have made the entire world amazed by their actions on the field. It’s really hard to compare them and pick the best one up. Both of them are equally amazing.
