Personally, I won't put Afridi in the batsmen category. He only knows how to swing and due to the mighty power in his shoulders the ball more often than not sails over the boundary ropes. He is all about brute force. Technique and timing is something thatsnon-existance in the Afridi batting manual. Poor Temprament is one of the main problems as a batsman for Afridi. Coming to Dhoni. He fares a little better than Afridi when it comesto timing and technique.Though he is miles behind A sachin or a Dravid when you talk about technique. He has a very good temprament. And most of his shots too like Afridi are built on brute force rather than cricketing finesse. Among the two Dhoni wins the race as a better batsman.

If you are comparing these two batsman than i will say that shahid afridi is much better than Dhoni..because he started playing cricket earlier than dhoni and has more experience than Dhoni but nowadays the way like dhoni is going I would say he will be the best player in the upcoming years.Agree or Disagree

If you say out of two, then i think Dhoni has slightly a better edge than Afridi as the latter is a flamboyant 20-20 all rounder. But Dhoni has excelled in all the three formats of the game and is now regarded as one of the best captains although i disagree upon that. Hence my vote goes to Dhoni. But the overall best is SACHIN RAMESH TENDULKAR. He is the master blaster and changed the dimension of the game. No one can even near Sachin and he stands tall among all the other players. In Cricket, bastman are of two kinds. One is Sachin Tendulkar and the second is: Rest of the batsmen in the world
