India’s chief selector MSK Prasad on Tuesday remarked that MS Dhoni still is the best wicket-keeper and finisher in the country. The former Indian skipper recently faced a lot of criticism for not being consistent enough with the bat in the World Cup. He though played a few crucial knocks, however, they weren’t enough to guide India through.

"Had we won the (World Cup) semi-final (against New Zealand), especially after the collapse we had at the top of the order, then the knocks that Jadeja and MS played would have been hailed as one of the best knocks ever," Prasad told PTI in an interview.

"I can clearly say this that till today MS is the best glovemen and finisher in India in the shorter formats. The others are still work in progress. MS was a big strength to this team in the World Cup both as a batsman and keeper, apart from sharing his vast experience with the team and captain while taking on-field decisions."

When asked about the squad against West Indies, Prasad said that they are following the post World Cup plan,

"I have very clearly told post the selection of the Indian team against West Indies, that we have a plan post World Cup to give as many opportunities as possible to Rishabh and groom him so that he can grow in confidence and perform as per the requirements of the team," Prasad said.
