Former Indian skipper MS Dhoni is widely regarded as one of the greatest wicketkeeper-batsmen of all time. The seasoned campaigner is also a highly decorated captain having led India to wins at the 2007 World Twenty20, 2011 World Cup, and 2013 Champions Trophy along with many memorable bilateral series triumphs. South African batsman Faf du Plessis, who is teammates with MS Dhoni in the Indian Premier League (IPL) recently heaped praise on the veteran Indian cricketer.
