Mahendra Singh Dhoni is a former captain of India and arguably the best to have led India on a cricket field. Dhoni has helped India lift the 2007 T20 World Cup and also the 2011 cricket World Cup. While Dhoni enjoys phenomenal stardom on-field and off-field, it was recently discovered that veteran Pakistan cricketer Shoaib Malik is also in awe of ‘Captain Cool’, Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
Shoaib Malik took to Twitter and organised a ‘Q&A’ session with his followers from all across the world. His fans were quick enough and asked him questions using ‘#AskMalik’. While Shoaib’s Twitter handle was soon flooded with questions. One question, in particular, stood out for all the right reasons and we are loving it. A fan asked the former Pakistani captain about India’s MS Dhoni.

Many fans tuned him and were asking questions. The Twitter handle was soon flooded with questions, a fan asked the former Pakistan captain about MS Dhoni. “shoaib malik some words on ms dhoni???” said the tweet. This is a tweet that could go a long way in bridging the gap between the two nations. Recently, a surgical strike took place and hence this tweet could have a calming influence. Earlier this year, Pakistan got the better of India in a world final, which was memorable from Pakistan’s point of view.

Now, let me explain what this mean, it means ‘Greatest Of All Times’. Mithali Raj is also a GOAT. It is the ultimate praise that can be ushered on an Indian captain by a Pakistani cricketer.
In 88 matches, the Pakistani right-handed batsman has amassed 1702 runs which include five half-centuries at a strike rate of 116.09. In the ongoing Independence Cup, Malik has scored 38 and 39 runs respectively. Malik would be hoping for a big show at the decider which takes place at the same venue on 15th of August.
Currently, Pakistan is hosting a World XI team for a 3 T20I’s. It is a big moment for Pakistani cricket, as cricket returns to the land after 8 long years. Cricket was banned from Pakistan after unidentified terrorists attacked a Sri Lankan bus, which was headed to the Gadaffi Stadium. Now that cricket is back in Pakistan, the fans are ecstatic to see their heroes in front of them. The first T20 was won by the World XI by a comprehensive margin, but Pakistan equalised it, setting up a mega decider.
