    Gilchrist comfortably. Incredible batting average and more than capable with the gloves.

    Yeah, Gilchrist no contest. Shows how good he is given the caliber of the other two.

    No he isn't, but these are the winners from the other polls, not just any three.

    Here's the link to the 1986-05 WK poll which was a landslide to Gilly (Flower 2nd)

    Gilly for me. A bit unfair to the other two in my opinion. Back then batting was not important for a wicket keeper. But then again, Gilly was the one who changed all that.

    Alan Knott is the greatest wicket-keeper of all time and based purely on that he would be the only choice. But the difference Gilchrist can make with bat outweighs his inferior (but still world class) wicket-keeping.
