“I think he has been one of the best, there is no doubt. There was a situation today. We were sitting in the dugout and was thinking who would come out to bat next. I just put my hand up and said that MS Dhoni will come and finish the game off. We probably did not execute the plan very well against him and you know that if you miss then he will make you pay. He has done it for a long time now. I think our bowlers did not bowl very well. So I think we will when he will decide to retire then he will be one of the best finishers of all time.” Ricky Ponting said.
