MS Dhoni

Only one name dominated the comments section of ICC's post asking the fans to name the best wicket-keeper in international cricket at present and it was none other than former Indian skipper MS Dhoni. It did not take too long for the fans of MS Dhoni to populate his name in the replies to ICC's post and soon there was just 'MS Dhoni' and 'MSD' mentions as replies to the post. While Pakistan's Sarfaraz Ahmed found himself in a few mentions - sarcastic ones with pictures of him yawing, ICC's post was flooded with just MS Dhoni's name while other keepers such as Saha, Gilchrist, Dravid and so on finding very few mentions. MS Dhoni is known for his lightning-fast speed and brilliance behind the stumps which on many occasions has got India across the line. There are countless moments of MS Dhoni's magic behind the stumps - whether it is a catch, a stumping or even a no-see run-out. While it looked like ICC's post was trying to figure out if fans favoured Saha, it got a befitting reply with just one name doing the rounds.
