Kudos pour in for MS on his maiden double ton

MS Dhoni, who received brickbats just a few months ago after the England series disaster, was today showered with accolades from former players after his career-best knock of unbeaten 206 in the first cricket Test against Australia. Dhoni found an admirer for his cool batting approach in legendary spinner Shane Warne, who tweeted, ‘WOW, MS Dhoni is going off here in Chennai, amazing batting.’

Another Australian legend Glenn McGrath, who is heading the MRF Pace Foundation here, wrote on his Twitter page, ‘Great innings by MS Dhoni 206*. India in a strong position against the Aussies.’

India's World Cup Yuvraj Singh tweeted, ‘Congratulations ! To @imVkohli and @msdhoni on there spectacular knocks specially ms a double ton in test cricket is a memory. What an innings @msdhoni truly inspirational stuff. One of the best innings i have seen,’ Dhoni's Indian team-mate Ajinkya Rahane said.

Former West Indies batsman Darren Ganga said, ‘Magnificent accomplishment from Dhoni. Proven the critics wrong. Clearly one of India's finest captains and wicket keeper-batsmen. Brilliant counter attack innings.’
