Five times MS Dhoni finished the job 

Once again lighting up the IPL with another classic finish, we take a look at five times the wicket-keeper/batter prevailed on the international scene.

The 183* is still the highest score by a wicketkeeper in a men’s one-day international and the first to shake his hand was opposing ‘keeper Kumar Sangakkara, who made an unbeaten 138* himself.

Dhoni’s calm in the heat of battle was exhibited in India’s chase of Australia, timing his run in spite of losing a pair of partners at the other end.

Six partners fell at the other end, but once again Dhoni kept his poise, hitting Shaminda Eranga for two sixes and a four in the final over in another impressive display, this time at the Queen's Park Oval.

Busy, but not in a hurry – Dhoni’s 72* in 46 balls against Pakistan in Lahore was a telling example of his chasing philosophy.

Of course, a list of Dhoni finishes would be incomplete without his crowning moment. Unflustered by the pressure of a World Cup final.

"A game was never over till MS Dhoni was done with the chase." Tom Moody, Shaun Pollock, Harsha Bhogle and Ian Bishop pay tribute to Dhoni – the finisher.
