MS Dhoni missed out in Goenka’s CEAT Cricket Awards list

Reading Time: 3 minutes

MS Dhoni again failed to impress the Goenkar’s.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the man known as MS Dhoni, who has won all the ICC Trophies and brought India to the number 1 rankings in Test Matches was ignored yet again by the Goenka’s. In the CEAT Cricket Awards, Goenka has named top 10 cricket players for the awards but MS Dhoni’s name wasn’t there, neither in the top 10 batsmen in ODIs and in Twenty20 Internationals.

After taking his team through the 3rd IPL Title on 27th April, Dhoni has the most title wins with Mumbai Indians Skipper Rohit Sharma. Then also MSD has been not been featured in the list of top 10 batsmen for the CEAT Awards.
Meanwhile, On May 28th, 2018 the leading tyre manufacturer CEAT Limited celebrated the success and glory of International cricket with ‘CEAT Cricket Rating (CCR) International awards 2018.

The awards honoured the best of the International cricketers based on their performances as rated by the CEAT Cricket ratings (CCR) for the year 2017 – 2018. Indian skipper Virat Kohli has won the International Cricketer of the Year Award. His performance has been absolutely brilliant in One Internationals and in the longer version of the gentlemen’s game.

Then the Kiwi Opener Colin Munro bagged the best player for the shortest format. Munro is amongst the fewest players who have scored 2 centuries in T20 Internationals. Even though he wasn’t a permanent member for the Double D’s in recently concluded IPL season, but his contribution for New Zealand has been immense while opening.

Virat Kohli won the test and the ODI cricketer of the year with 84 and 64 points respectively and Colin Munro won the T20 Cricketer of the year with whopping 1044 points. Amongst the modern day great batsmen, only Virat Kohli and Joe Root have been featured in ODIs and Tests, Kane Williamson is 7th on the list in ODIs and Steve Smith is 3rd on the list in Tests.
