Wow! What a legend! That is as classy as it can get! This alone should keep him in the test side for at least 30 years!
PS: It was fairly easy keeping against Murali and Mendis, but it is helluva task to keep to legendary spinners like Ashwin and Jadeja.

That's great for Dhoni. Just imagine what his stats were if he was a half decent gloveman in overseas Tests, especially outside the subcontinent where he was been woeful.
The cleanest gloveman on that list is probably Ian Healy, although he if we were talking about sportsmanship, personality and popularity he maybe bottom of that list!
