MS Dhoni the 'best wicketkeeper in the world'

MS Dhoni’s ability with the gloves trumps any concerns about his up-and-down batting form, according to India’s selectors, who have declared the veteran the ‘best wicketkeeper in the world’.

Dhoni was included in the 15-player Champions Trophy squad belatedly named by the Board of Control for Cricket in India on Monday after a two-week delay, reports

The 35-year-old stood down from the national limited-overs captaincy in January, handing the reins to Virat Kohli, but has remained part of India’s ODI and T20 squads.

His form since handing over the limited-overs captaincy has been mixed, the veteran scoring 6, 134 and 25 in January’s three-match ODI series against England, before knocks of 36no, 5 and 56 in the Twenty20 International series that followed.

Dhoni has also scored 235 runs in 12 innings at an average of 26.11 for Rising Pune Supergiant in the ongoing Indian Premier League.
