Which batting position brings the best out of Dhoni?

October 28, 2016 20:13 IST

India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni's batting position has become the talking point in the on-going series against New Zealand. 

Ganguly says Dhoni should bat at No. 4. Do you agree?

Batting at No 4, he took India over the line in the 3rd one-dayer in Mohali, scoring 80 off 91 balls. He maintained his spot in the next match in Ranchi but could not repeat his magic.

Former India captain Sourav Ganguly has backed Dhoni's move to bat up the order, stating: "Let him play at number four. He will finish from there. Finisher does not mean he has to bat from the 40th over."

Here is a breakdown of Dhoni's scores at different positions in the batting order:
