  • Mahendra Singh Dhoni mocks ICC, says 'they don't understand Duckworth-Lewis Method'

Many games are being affected with rain playing spoilsport in the recent series and that is the reason there is so much talk about the Duckworth-Lewis method.

The Ranchi-born cricketer, who remains to be a role model for aspiring cricketers across the world, picked Rawalpindi Express Shoaib Akhtar as the toughest bowler he has faced.

Dhoni, who led India to their ICC Champions Trophy title in 2013, will hope to bat against Sri Lanka in the second match of the coveted tournament.

"I don't think even ICC understands the D/L method", the Ranchi lad said with a smile.

"All the fast bowlers are quite hard, with the limited technique I had, it was very hard to face the fast bowlers", Dhoni said. "He could bowl a bouncer but you never expected a beamer, he was a bit unpredictable", he added.
