    CW All-Time XI Wicket Keepers

    The man with the gloves. The big question is whether of one wants a wicket-keeper batsman, or a batsman wicket keeper, or the one who perfected both. Kindly choose one of the following.
    Les Ames, Wasim Bari, Mark Bouher, Jeffrey Dujon, Godfrey Evans, Andy Flower, Adam Gilchrist, Ian Healy, Allan Knott, Geoffrey Marsh, Kumar Sangakkara, Clyde Walcott.

    There were others better with the glove, but IMHO no one brought the total package that Gilly did.

    Reasonably easy decision this one. He was very good with the gloves and very good with the bat. No-one matches his overall contribution as a wicket keeper.

    Well for me it's between the best outright keeper Knott or Gilly, at the end of the day though you don't lose that much with Gily's keeping but obviously he's a far far better batsman.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    Uh... I voted for Ames since I regard him a compromise between a better 'keeper and better batsman. Don't think I'm going to win this one though.
    Oh for a strong arm and a walking stick

    Had a huge temptation to vote Flower who probably was a better batsman but I don't have much idea about his keeping. Sticking with Gilchrist.

    Gilchrist - not because I personally think his batting is more important than Evans' or Tallon's glovework, but because modern cricket thinks it is. In my lifetime, no-one changed the game like Gilly.

    Was tempted to vote for Evans, but yeah, Gilly deserves this slot.

    agree with fusion though
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta
