Steve Waugh backed MS Dhoni’s approach in the semi-final

Vastavam web: Former Australia player Steve Waugh on Friday backed India wicket-keeper batsman MS Dhoni’s approach in the semi-final against New Zealand and even went on say that ‘without Dhoni, there would not be a chance to win a game’. “I think it is pretty unfair. MS Dhoni has won so many games to India and he has played in the same way over the long period of time. He can get you in a situation that can give you a chance to win the game and without him, there would not be a chance to win a game,” Waugh told.

“Of course, you are not going to win every time. The other day, he was a couple of inches away from being home for the second run. He may have still won that game. I know how hard it is to win a one-day game while chasing and he has done better than anyone in the history of the game,” added Waugh. Waugh said he expected India to chase the target but praised Boult and Henry’s spell. “I expected India to chase down 240 but there was great bowling from Henry and Boult up front, three early wickets. Due to pressure in big-game situations, it is hard to chase runs. India will be no doubt disappointed. They would have expected to make 240,” he said.
