2 Adam Gilchrist Adam Gilchrist

Dhoni fans are idiot to deny the truth - lehos

Adam Gilchrist Insane Wicket Keeping skills.

What the hell! Dhoni is not better than Gilchrist. This guy stood up to the stumps for Mitchel Johnson and Nathan Bracken. Besides that, he's taken catches and executed stumpings that everyone gazes with awe at. Dhoni is definitely popular, but Adam Gilchrist is the greatest wicket keeper ever to stand behind international stumps

Man come on, did adam gilchrist ever stumed or run out someone without looking at the wickets, just taking the ball and passing it between his legs still with a smile on his face which shows that how much he is confident that the player is out even he haven't looked at wicket, and kumar sangakkara have more dismissal than gilchrist

3 Kumar Sangakkara Kumar Sangakkara

7 Alec Stewart
8 Andy Flower
9 Alan Knott

As a keeper, Alan Knott was excellent. He played in the 1970s and once held the world record for the number of dismissals. He did very well with spinners like Derek Underwood and pacers like Bob Willis. He was selected in Wisden's greatest test XI, over Adam Gilchrist for his wicket keeping skills. He has over 300 wicket keeping dismissals in test cricket. He also has a good batting average but when it comes down to pure wicket keeping, he does better than Dhoni, Rahim, Flower, Stewart, Sangakkara. Gilchrist might be a better wicket keeper batsman but Alan Knott trumps him in wicket keeping. Ian Healy is an excellent wicket keeper who is underrated in this list. Godfrey Evans, a fine wicket keeper is below players who can't even keep for their national team like KL Rahul and Dinesh Karthik.
