    Haha, never heard of any of them. Cricinfo player profiles would be far more useful tbh.

    Blackham, btw.

    Blackham 'the prince of wicket keepers' just over Dick Lilley
    You know it makes sense.

    Yeah, keepers are the breed for whom basic stats probably tell us the least. Blackham btw.

    This thread is so random. And any "selections" made by us are conjecture as none of us have even seen these guys play!

    Its a tough one. I voted Dick Lilly only because he was considered such a fine keeper and would not like him to be slaughtered as if it was a no contest.
