Sachin Tendulkar, the batting legend appreciated Dhoni's match-winning inning in 2nd ODI at Adelaide. 

He went on to praise the 37-year-old for playing the finisher's role and reckoned he can be someone who is going to control games for India from one end.

Tendulkar said on his app 100MB "Yesterday's (Tuesday) contribution was good. In the first match, I felt he was a little rusty, he was not being able to hit the ball where he wanted to and that can happen to anyone. He walked out in the second match thinking differently and from ball one, he looked a different player."

"He (Dhoni) is someone who loves to play a few dot balls, understand the wicket, how the bowlers are bowling and like to take the game till the end. That is exactly what he did. He is someone who is going to control the game from one end," Tendulkar added.

Sachin also said that Dhoni looked completely different in the 2nd ODI at Adelaide.
