The very nature of keeping is that it is physically suited to the player of shorter stature.
Really tall batsmen are an aberration too - look at all the top players in world cricket history - the 'big' guys are the all-rounders and bowlers. I appreciate that there exceptions, but that's just how the game seems to be.
Dujon (WIndies). A great keeper.
