Pune: Rising Pune Supergiant (RPSG) skipper Steve Smith played an match-winning unbeaten innings of 84 from 54 balls to lead his side to an enthralling 7-wicket win against Mumbai Indians, with one ball remaining.

Smith was appointed RPSG captain before the beginning of IPL, replacing former India skipper MS Dhoni.

 

Dhoni may not be RPSG skipper anymore, but for the franchise’s opener Ajinkya Rahane, the ‘Captain Cool’ is still the best leader.

Rahane – who scored 60 against the Mumbai franchise – heaped praise on the former Chennai Super Kings skipper in the press-conference, settling the Dhoni vs Smith debate.

“Though Steve Smith has led the Australian side very well, for me, MS Dhoni is still the best leader. This was the first game as leader for Smith, but he was learning from Dhoni as well. Smith was seen taking more tips from him. Dhoni was seen giving tips and inputs to Smith in the middle,” said Rahane.
