Jos Butler vs MS Dhoni in Cricket Talk Posted 18 minutes ago · Report reply 43 minutes ago, maniac said: No one is denying that from a total body of work Dhoni is a little ahead. However Butler’s knock against the Aussie attack yesterday and also his kncoks in the UAE(which is equivalent of a knock on English conditions for a SC batsman), to maintain that average at that strike rate is pretty impressive. Currently absolutely it is Butler hands down. Doesn't change my opinion even by a little bit.Just picking a few knocks and gloryfing str: rate does not do. Keep in mind str: rate is per 100 balls. So Butler's almost 38.5 avg: & 117 str:rate means he scores 38.5 runs in almost 33 balls. Dhoni scores 51.5 runs in almost 58 balls. So more or less both are same in pure stats. But Dhoni scored those runs a decade back in more bowling friendly conditions in general. And all other things are convincingly in Dhoni's favour. So no comparison as of now.
