    Shahid Afridi Vs MS Dhoni

    One's a Beast and the other is a Flat Track Phoni,

    well thats my opinion at least

    whats yours?

    afridi isnt consistence i admit but he has no general weak area,

    to dhoni you pitch it at rib height outside on off stump and he is out,

    he has battered pakistan and lanka sure but other countries havent let him move,

    south africa,west indies and many more to come..i cant wait to see him in england or aus

    you can include england series sure but that was at home on flat tracks

    Dhoni hands down, seeing as he is actually a batsman.

    hes only played on asian pitches so far and that too vs sri lanka and pakistan virtually,

    hes already been found out anyway,
    pitch it outisde off stump at rib height and he will just deal in singles and edges

    Well it's questionable as to whether either have brains? Well Afridi always seems to leave his behind when he tours outside Asia. Both gifted, both over hyped beyond belief, but I'd probably take Afridi, no Dhoni, ahhhhh both.

    They are both talented batsmen who have about three brain cells between them

    Dhoni was so awesome in the West Indies and at home against England, he gave Shaun Udal hell…

    He gave Monty some good catching practice as well. Did you see the difference between his first attempt and the actualy catch?!?!?!? Lovely bloke.

    I'll admit that Dhoni's shot in Mumbai wasn't the most intelligent but he has also played a big role in India's run chases in the ODIs where most times he showed a lot of maturity and intelligence as to when to attack or defend.
    Its his technique against the moving and rising ball that worries me. If he can find a way to get around that, he should be fairly succesful in the next few years.
    Afridi is very exciting to watch but he doesn't seem to think about the match situation too much....

    Look at some of Dhoni's chases in ODIs recently, and compare that to Afridi's innings throughout his career.

    Dhoni isn't the sharpest knife in the draw, but he can play sensible. The first innings in Mumbai he played a very sensible knock until he was run out as well.

    They have exactly ONE brain cell between them, and neither of them have the class to survive in all conditions. If I had to pick one, I'd take Dhoni...but barely.
