Miller in awe of MSD’s finishing skills

Dubai: David Miller is in awe of MS Dhoni’s finishing skills and the South African says he wants to imbibe the former India skipper’s calmness in high-pressure run chases.

Miller will be playing for Rajasthan Royals in the IPL beginning September 19 after eight years with Kings XI Punjab.

‘I absolutely love the way Dhoni goes about his business. Certainly his calmness – you just think he’s always under control. The way he portrays himself, that’s something he’s extremely good at and I do enjoy that about him. I try and give off the same energy,’ Miller told ‘ESPNcricinfo’.

Miller is a Dhoni fan but he is not oblivious to the two-time World Cup winner’s weaknesses even though he prefers to steer clear of the specifics. ‘…he’s got his strengths and weaknesses as a batsman and so do I. I tend to be in awe of some of his chases rather than ‘I want to bat like him’. I suppose I just want to finish games like he does.’
